no actually I hadn't considered that option. although based on the response he gave, I would wager that my assumption was correct.

ds_online Re:Hmm (742 comments)

actually its never to late to put children who are being abused by their parents into protective custody. why don't you give me your contact information so I can pass it on to the right agency.

What To Load On a 4-Year-Old's Netbook?

ds_online Re:Hmm (742 comments)

Yes I take my 5 year old and my 3 year old shopping weekly, there is no screaming, there is no disciplinary action. if you can't handle raising children who listen to you, maybe you shouldn't have had them in the first place. Leaving a 5 year old at home is child abuse. and most state agencys would agree.

ds_online Zoodles (742 comments)

my kids ( 5 and 3 ) love using zoodles, its a web browser for kids that gives them age appropriate content, I set my kids up with an older computer that was just laying around and stuck ubuntu on it. they use it for a couple hours a day and my son is the top reader in his kindergarten class.

Sneak Preview For Coming KDE SC 4.5

ds_online Re:Dual monitors? (249 comments)

I am using 2.6.31.12-0.2-desktop from opensuse, though I don't think it would matter much. its the nvidia driver that does the dual monitor support not the kernel.
