  • Connecting Desktops

    Imagine two offices in different parts of the building, and you work in both of them. Many times you need to share information between the offices, a task complicated by the distance between them and the time it takes to move papers, telephone contacts, etc. from one to the other. If only you could someone connect both offices seamlessly, your ...

  • Remote Desktops

    Let’s face it. So far the “Information Age,” what futurist Alvin Toffler coined The Third Wave in 1980, has been a headache of electronic junk, slow computers, confusing software, extra work, and ergonomic nightmares. Geeks aside, computers are often more trouble than they are worth. But every now and then there are glimpses of a future that ...

  • Joining the Conversation

    Daily conversation unites individuals and groups. We establish social bonding and friendships through every day, seemingly trivial, exchanges. Many children with pragmatic challenges (impairments in social language) may have difficulty joining a conversation.

  • A Better Cell Count Calculation

    When I took High School physics, we were not allowed to use calculators. This was just as well, since they were bulky and expensive. The Texas Instruments SR-50 sold for $170 in 1974, which is over $860 today. Slide rules were cheap. Pen and paper was cheaper. Point is it’s always tempting to use a computer. Write a program, spreadsheet function, ...

This is to be expected within any professional discipline, however, clinicians are regularly required to code-switch between high-level terminology and plain language.Back in my early days, I was presenting to a teacher and a young ...

  • Music Improves Your Work

    All the labs I’ve been in have a radio on. A surveyer once commented on this in a lab, saying in her experience they were usually by a sink. In our lab there is a radio directly outside my office, which is the only place we get reception. All day, every day it plays country western music. Not all the techs - myself included - prefer this genre, ...
