Tom's attempts to get GPRS working over bluetooth with his laptop Tom's attempts to get GPRS working over bluetooth with his laptop Last updated: $Date: 2008/11/28 13:56:01 $ Dramatis apparatus: Sony VAIO C1F picturebook with RH80 and 2.4.20 kernel (handbuilt) 3Com Bluetooth card 3CRWB6096 Nokia 6310i GSM 'phone subscribed to Orange (UK) Note from later: I am still using this basic technique, with an Asus S6F laptop running Fedora Core 6 on a stock 2.6.18-1.2849.fc6 kernel, plus a Nokia 6230i 'phone. Most of this document still applies, but you can read FC6-specific notes here. I also no longer need to build the rfcomm module into the kernel, as it ships with the stock RH kernel. Note from much later (20081128): I am now using an openmoko GSM phone. i still have connectivity working, but the mechanics are somewhat different as the 'moko is physically connected to my laptop via usb instead of wirelessly via bluetooth, and it is running linux in its own right, so is used as a router and NAT device as well as a serial wireless internet connectivity device. This joyous expedition comes in stages: Kernel #! Using the GPRS
Intel's Classmate PC, a sub-notebook optimised for primary and secondary schools, has proved its worth in Africa's classrooms, say executive VP Sean Maloney, and south and Sub-Saharan Africa GM Jacques van Schalkwyk. There is now direct evidence that children do better at school when they have access to the Internet,” says Maloney. “It is irrefutable evidence.” An Intel-led consortium has been testing the diminutive laptop in a school near Abuja, in Nigeria, and Pretoria, SA. “We started off with one classroom to understand what the problems were and to get the teachers familiar with it,” says Van Schalkwyk of the Abuja experiment. Success was remarkable, he adds. Van Schalkwyk says the Nigerian authorities were suitably impressed, and all children at the school now have a device. An additional 300 schools have since received Classmate and “we are working on the details of the next 300 schools right now. Classmate in SA Our comments policy does not allow anonymous postings.

Hi, folks-- I've been having some trouble using WPA2-PSK between my hostapd server (with an Atheros chipset) and a Nokia N810 client (using the Conexant CX3110X). The client will associate with the AP just fine, rekeys periodically as expected, and immediately registers the de-association when I shut down hostapd. Occasionally, I'll even be able to transfer data over the link for a few minutes after the initial association, but shortly thereafter, said data start disappearing into the void. The association is never lost, hostapd's logs show no errors, and the client will still de-associate immediately if I shut down hostapd--I just can't push a payload through the link. I've noticed the problem with the Nokia N810 (running Maemo Linux and using the CX3110X) and with the Nokia E70 (running Symbian and using an unknown wifi chipset). Thanks! --branen _______________________________________________ HostAP mailing list HostAP WPA2 doesn't work with Nokia N810 (Conexant CX3110X) - WPA2 doesn't work with Nokia N810 (Conexant CX3110X) -

Recipe for A Great Remote Worker Recipe for A Great Remote Worker A friend of mine told me today that he just can’t work from home. He simply cannot do it. This guy enjoys his work, he likes his team, he’s great at what he does, and he feels a sense of responsibility to his employer. It made me wonder: What makes him incapable of working from home, when others have no problem at all? What is it that we remote workers have, that others don’t? You knew this was going to be first up, and it’s probably the single biggest factor in remote working success. I tend to think of my time as being fairly compartmentalized: When it’s work time, I do work, and that’s pretty much all I do and think about. 2. You have to care about something to work remotely. I’m fortunate in that I have both a passion for what I do, and for the things working remotely affords me. 3. Motivation really is crucial for remote workers, but especially so for those who aren’t on a salary. I get around the big motivation issues by making them non-negotiable. 4.
The 1st of the month was my 1 month anniversary working for Fresh Consulting. There been a whole lot of crazy and a whole lot of good things that have happened within 1 month of working here: Pushed out a new site using a brand new CMS in 2 days.Built configurable RSS for existing content for video and text content.Implemented the haversine formula into an application to properly sort results by distance.Mastered (well better yet got REALLY familiar) with running SVN from the command prompt. Wow, Through all of this, I spent probably 90% of my time in PHP, where .Net is really my stronger language at the time, so everything has been lots of learning on the fly. The transition process has been a bit more difficult than I had planned. After this things got a lot easier to keep dibs on, especially since we pull our tasks from a couple different management tools. The front door view of the office. ...because every office needs a Lego Death Star next to their coffee maker.

Advances in technology have made it possible for many employees to work from their homes or on the road instead of having to go to a place of business. These remote workers have many advantages such eliminating the commute to work which gives them more productive use of their time. They stay in contact with coworkers through telephone, emails and video conferencing and submit all their work online. Although telecommuting has benefits for both the employer and employee, there are some situations where remote workers are at a disadvantage. Hallway meetings – Coworkers who work together in the same building often discuss things informally in the hall or break room that the remote worker is unable to be privy to. This leaves the telecommuter at a big disadvantage by not being able to participate in the day to day office conversation. The ability to work for a company from a remote location has opened up great opportunities for many people. 5 Situations Where Remote Workers are at a Disadvantage 5 Situations Where Remote Workers are at a Disadvantage

なぜゲーミフィケーションは効果的なのか?(Why Gamification Works?)
Works Software engineering is an area in computer science that is specifically concerned with the development and updating of computer software. We live n a world in which computers mean everything and which is capable of developing at a pace that no one would have thought. This means that the computer software must keep up with this pace if software engineering companies are to make a profit and stay in business. There are different types of software, each of them developed with a particular purpose and each with a different level of importance. System software is one of these different types of software which is perhaps the most important as it ensures the metal box on one’s desk is actually functional. System software is the computer software that has been developed as to operate the computer hardware. Works

Blacks happier at work than whites despite fewer friends, less autonomy 5-Dec-2013 [ Print | E-mail ] Share [ Close Window ] Contact: Daniel 202-527-7885American Sociological Association WASHINGTON, DC, December 2, 2013 — Despite working in more routine and less autonomous jobs, having fewer close friends at work, and feeling less supported by their coworkers, blacks report significantly more positive emotions in the workplace than whites, according to a new study in the December issue of Social Psychology Quarterly. "We were surprised by this," said lead author Melissa M. Titled, "Counting on Coworkers: Race, Social Support, and Emotional Experiences on the Job," the study considered more than 1,300 state government employees in Tennessee. Sloan and her co-authors Ranae J. In workplaces with a low percentage of minority employees — 13 percent or less — black workers said they considered 39 percent of their coworkers to be close friends versus 61 percent for white workers.

Walk While You Work Unfortunately our bodies are not naturally geared to sit at a desk all day. There exists plenty of research showing that sedentary approaches to life can take years away from us. Being a desk jockey certainly contributes to these negative effects. But regardless, there we go – working our lives away in front of the computer. Don’t you love the days when you work through lunch or when the 3pm “sleepies” set in? It is hard enough getting all the work done in a day, not to mention remembering to get up and walk around every so often. LifeSpan Fitness offers both commercial and residential fitness machines like treadmills, bikes and rowers. My big question when reading about the unit was how do you get used to walking and working?
ThermaCELL® Mosquito Repellent Lanterns and Appliances are powered by a single butane cartridge. Butane provides the cordless, portable heat that activates the patented devices. The heat generated by the butane cartridge is directed to a metal grill that is part of the design of the Lantern or Appliance. A small mat, saturated with repellent, sits on top of the metal grill. Heat vaporizes the repellent, allowing it to rise into the air. The repellent is allethrin, a copy of a repellent that naturally occurs in chrysanthemum flowers. Within minutes after turning on the Lantern or Appliance, the repellent creates a 15 by 15-foot (225 square-foot) area of repellency, the size of an average deck, patio, or campsite.

My Students Don’t Like Group Work February 22, 2012 By: Maryellen Weimer, PhD in Teaching Professor Blog Students don’t always like working in groups. Ann Taylor, an associate professor of chemistry at Wabash College, had a class that was particularly vocal in their opposition. She asked for their top 10 reasons why students don’t want to work in groups and they offered this list (which I’ve edited slightly). It’s hard to focus during small group exercises.We are always rushed.Group exercises mean we do the work and the teacher doesn’t. A few of these reasons have convinced some faculty that not much learning occurs in groups. Taylor responds as do many of us who use group work regularly. It’s also true that working in groups is harder than doing it on your own. To students and some teachers, lecture looks like a “neater” way to learn. Does this mean group work should replace lectures? Taylor says she uses groups over student objections because they work. Reference: Taylor, A. (2011). Recent Trackbacks [...] 4. [...]
This creed shaped America and evolved with the decades. Starting in the mid-20th century, there was a Southern and Western version of it, formed by ranching Republicans like Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. Their version drew on the traditional tenets: ordinary people are capable of greatness; individuals have the power to shape their destinies; they should be given maximum freedom to do so. This is not an Ayn Randian, radically individualistic belief system. But this worldview is innately suspicious of government. During the 2012 campaign, Republicans kept circling back to the spot where government expansion threatens personal initiative: you didn’t build that; makers versus takers; the supposed dependency of the 47 percent. These economic values played well in places with a lot of Protestant dissenters and their cultural heirs. But, each year, there are more Americans whose cultural roots lie elsewhere. Second, they are also tremendously appreciative of government. The Party of Work
