I like shooting 120 film, but due to the cost of processing and printing, I have about a dozen rolls that have been hanging around waiting for development. Is there a way for me to easily cut down the cost? [more inside]
Micropanda is 4 1/2, has great verbal skills, some mild delays in motor skills, and is a total space cadet in the absence of direct 1-on-1 adult interaction. He's in occupational therapy for sensory processing disorder. He is underweight and hates eating. We're coming to the end of our six month wait to see the developmental pediatrician, and the appointment's next week. Please tell me what to expect, help me think through prioritizing concerns, and offer any suggestions you have about how to get the most out of this appointment. [more inside]
I'm using Processing to create some animations that use simple rules to create complex and ever changing patterns. My fantasy is to have them displayed on the wall, each in its own frame-like hardware, like living paintings. What hardware should I use? [more inside]

Micropanda (4) is sweet, bright, kind, and empathetic. He is also hypersensitive to sound, messy fingers, car motion, and water temperature, among other things. He had a rocky transition to preschool this fall - he behaves ok at school, but appears to exhaust his coping skills there, and has become volatile and meltdown-prone at home. Some deficiencies in his gross motor skills are also becoming apparent. I am becoming increasingly convinced that he has a sensory processing disorder with a motor component. On advice of our pediatrician, we have recently started him in once-weekly occupational therapy. I am wondering what other steps I need to be taking. Wall of snowflakes within. [more inside]
I would like to take multiple photographs, or video frames, and combine them in different ways. An example of this would be to take many frames of a monument on a busy day, and then generate a picture of the monument with no people by taking the empty spaces from different frames. Or to simulate a long exposure by averaging multiple frames taken over time. [more inside]

Over the last year, I've had a contact form on my website with a checkbox for "Notify me when your book is done." My book is done and I'd like to email them.

Greetings all, I realize that this is not a medical forum, but I have been struggling with ADHD and a slower processing speed for most of my life. At times it has been somewhat manageable due to medications but right now it is not. This issue affects every aspect of my life and I wish that it did not. If I could solve my memory and processing speed issue, I'd be willing to wager that I would have a good shot at turning around my life. Has anyone struggled with this sort of stuff? If so, what has worked for you? I've read that biofeedback has worked for some people but it is very expensive and not an option right now. I have also been told that doing things like crosswords and sudoku can be of benefit and I am not very good at either one of those. I apologize, but if anyone has any solutions that has worked for them with regards to improving their memory and processing speed, please let me know regardless of how outlandish it might sound. Ultimately, the big goal is to be able to become an efficient learner and to be able to play ball in the same park as everyone else, but to this day, that has not been the cards that I have been dealt. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for a 2D animation toolkit that helps me animate various actors, like man, woman, cat and helps in realising various actions like sleeping, running, etc. with programmatical ease. I have looked into processing.org and started to toy with simple geometric shapes, but yet to stumble across an animation with man/woman actors. Could you help me find some good resources where I could learn to animate such things? TIA.
Word/OpenOffice/LibreOffice/everything ...When I want to underline a single word in a word processing or email application I want just the letters of the word underlined not the spaces that follow it. All of the editing programs I use, when you double click on a word will highlight the word and the spaces that follow it (up to the start of the next word). So when I select underline the spaces get underlined also. I don't want that (who does?). It's ok behavior for bold and italics because you can't see if the space has gotten those attributes. But with underline you can see it and I think it's wrong and I don't want it. Why is it done this way and can I stop it? [more inside]

Is there a word processor out there that acts a little bit like Excel? I'd love to have one document, but with separate "sub-documents", tabs, "worksheets".
