Attic gadgets

Nipped up into my Dads attic yesterday and had my camera so I took some photos of a couple of my old gadgets.?
At some point I need to go and sort the attic out properly. Once we have bought a house I will get them all down. I especially miss my Sega Saturn for some reason.?

On these pictures there are... MacSE30, Systems Pong game, Jaguar 64, SNES, Atari Portfolio, Ericsson Windows Mobile PDA, Compaq Contura, Apple Powerbook 140, ZX Spectrum and various laptops, Nokia Communicator 9000, Psion Sienna and Mark II, Game Gear, Various Desktops including Mac with CD drive and tray loader.Toshiba T1800.

I have many more but time was limited!

Reigniting posterous again perhaps

I'm taking another look at Posterous again. I'm not really sure why as I haven't written a proper blog for a while but this seems an easy way to share between all my other tings...

NESTA - Next Gen.

via nesta.org.uk Following on from an article on the BBC about Raspberry Pi, this next gen report has some interesting findings. The scariest stat which I picked out from the BBC website was "out of the 28,767 teachers who were awarded Qualified Teacher Status... in 2010, only three qualified in computing or computing science as their primary qualification" Having worked as a computer science teacher for a year in a school that was a specialist in Computing I can concur that the uptake in Comp Sci was woeful. 2 Students for A2... The other teachers backgrounds in Computer Science was also fairly woeful (most knowing a bit about Office but still a paltry amount even about that). I couldn't speak for my counterpart that I was covering however. I suspect they were fairly up on things. All in all what kills me is that Computer science is not a secondary level subject. Areas are often covered, a little in IT, a little in DT subjects (if kids choose Systems and Contr

Motorola MC65

We have a new PDA in town now. As a replacement for the army of MC9000 and MC70s that are in the field and are being discontinued, we now are moving up to the Motorola MC65. I have had the new handheld for about a week now and have been impressed so far. It's a great improvement over the MC70. I have no idea how the numbering system of the Symbol / Motorola devices works. I assume there must be several ranges such as the 50s 60s and 70s.? Anyway the?PDA?has windows mobile 6.5.3, a better touch screen and is faster. Much faster. The skin that has been put on the OS has also applied to our software and I think it makes it look much cooler. We had several problems in adjusting our software so it would work with the new MC65. First was the change in resolution. The MC70 has a much lower resolution than the MC65s and as some of our screens were not using the auto scale settings in the form and some of the buttons on our forms were created at run time rather than design time, this posed
