I am using Microsoft Publisher 97 to do some work today and tomorrow. I got this software for a donation to the National Capital Freenet in late 1999.

I am now starting to create an FAQ for Linux beginners for our OCLUG web site FAQ's.

I am buying some more ink for the Epson Photo Stylus 700 this week. I was able to print my essay on the Epson colour stylus 440 ok. It seems I now need to print at best quality to get perfectly readable text. I think this is perhaps the age of the printer causing it to degrade but it could also be the quality of the ink I am using.
I posted two emails to the OCLUG, this weekend and Monday. Both emails were status reports rather than problems described.

I tried to install Debian 3.0.23 twice yesterday on the Duron box but failed both times. I can get the base system installed but task selection and dselect failed. On the second attempt the initialisation of the root directory partition failed.
I did not use my computers while my guests were over. After they left I immediately used my eMac.

I have installed the base system and I think a few compilers on the Thinkpad 360SC. So I have a functioning basic Linux system now.
Xandros is now available as a free download. This was mentioned on the Ottawa Canada Linux users Group email list today by someone from Xandros. I will download it later.
Today I have to use a data projector at school. I will play a slide show from Open Office on my laptop and show my presentation on GIS and emergency response in class tonight. I have also printed the slides on paper using a laser printer at the school's library. I printed on both sides of the page. I chatted with Heather Cross our library help person. She has a sociology MA and a Law and sociology BA from Carleton.

- Wall, David, ed. Crime and the Internet (London, Routledge, 2001).
- This book suggests that neither a big crime or no crime has occurred because of the Internet. Rather a lot of minor small crimes have occurred and we still aren't sure what, where, why, who, when and how the Internet is existing and changing existence. It is a collection of papers about Internet crime by criminologists from the UK. I have not read much of it yet.
- Grabosky, Peter & Smith, Russell G. & Dempsey, Gillian. Electronic Theft: Unlawful Acquisition in Cyberspace (Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 2001).
- This book examines cybercrime but in particular theft using computers.
- Zylinska, Joanna ed. The Cyborg Experiments: The Extensions of the Body in the Media Age (London: Continuum, 2002).
- I don't know what this book is about yet.
- Gray, Chris Hables. cyborg citizen: Politics in the Posthuman Age (New York: Routledge, 2001).
- This book examines briefly all kinds of cyborgs but the main theme is the politics of the cyborg age in particular participatory politics. So this book is both maybe a green politics book and also in the subfield of political science studies that I place my own political science studies. I am tempted to read more of this book but also tempted not too.
