Thanks For the ... Eight-Track, Uncle Alex

ptelligence Re:Pretty easy (633 comments)

How cool would that be. Put family videos and pictures on the netbook in a place where they are easily accessible, disconnect the battery and reseal it in its original packaging. An Ipod touch might be a good idea as well.

Configuring a Windows PC For a Senior Citizen?

ptelligence WOW no mention of NX in this thread. (823 comments)

For you folks that do decide to set your relative up with Linux, consider giving yourselves remote access with NX and leaving port 22 on your router/firewall open to point to their machine. That should let you troubleshoot just about everything except hardware and network problems.

ptelligence Makes your devices bigger. (170 comments)

You'll need more real estate if you can't put electronics behind the screen. I guess you could have a flip up semi-transparent touch screen. Use it from the front when it's down and from the back when you flip it up.
