Koha is an open source library management system that has been around for 12 years. It now faces losing its name. Can you help?

My now 3yr old daughter has been using my ipad 1 since I bought it soon after release last year. It just has a thin rubber case and it has survived fine and we have hard tile floors. It took a bit of training at first to convince her to be very careful with it, but now she's fine with it by herself. On the other hand she has damaged my ex's iphone in the past but she's been using that since she had reasonable finger control and is fine with them now.

The key really is good apps so it doesn't become just another video output device. For starters there are some pretty amazing ones out there that redefine what a book is and the education potential (learning through play) is quite amazing.

They're gonna get you too!

another one bites the dust.

My friend Jan Pulsford, who many of you know as the very talented musician Jana Kyomoon in Second Life, has been banned for the second time from G+ and has too much to do in her life to appeal again. She's done.

Jana's performed with us pretty much monthly at one of our Sunday performances in SL. Jan used to tour with Cindi Lauper and a number of musicians as well as touring on her own both in Europe and in the US, and I do believe beyond.

The only thing I can imagine is that she has more of an Internet trace as Jana Kyomoon, so they decided her legal name of Jan Pulsford couldn't be "real."

Starting to feel like obits.

How is it, that in spite of the accessories and stuff available for the kindle, there are still no commercially available "DON'T PANIC" covers?

+Stewart Smith the closest i've been able to find is the custom skin maker on uniqueskins.com which lets you design a skin. It's still not a cover :(
