Here is a well-structured and clear 41 page technical evaluation [250 kB PDF] of 3 major Open Source open access repository systems (DSpace, ePrints, and Fedora), written by Max Maxwell, Jun Yamog, and Richard Wyles. The evaluation was funded by the Tertiary Education Commission of New Zealand. It was published in September 2006, and, in the case of ePrints, covers version 2, rather than the presently available version 3, which has superior work-flow capabilities.

Submitter: Stephen Chappell (other recipes)
Last Updated: 2006/03/20
This recipe was designed for remotely receiving bug reports. It was written after participating in a programming contest where feedback was not helpful. The concept presented here is a step towards working with Python remotely. As sys.stderr is replaced in this recipe, so sys.stdin and sys.stdout can also be redirect to an alternate source (such as sockets connected to another computer).

ITServices restored it.
Meanwhile Gmail and Gcal get better by the day.
An auto-synch of Entourage/Exchange to GCal is clearly needed, but meanwhile
The easiest way to back up my entourage calendar was simply to import it into ical.
And then to put the backup on GCal, I exported from ical and from GCal. No problem.
Of course new events will come to Entourage...and I'll want them in gmail. But since all my email is routed through gmail and maybe I can keep Gcal fresh.
When I'm disconnected from the net....well back to entourage unfortunately. Until google's next move.

By experimentation it can be demonstrated that the tetrahedron is the minimum shape or structure that energy can take.
The minimum "thing" or system in the universe has to be a tetrahedron.
Anything less is not a system and does not have the properties of a system.
Systems can be made out of triangles, but how many?
|By experimentation it can be demonstrated that only 3 basic systems can be constructed out of equilateral triangles: tetrahedra, octahedra, & icosahedra.|
Therefore, all of nature must be built up from some combination or multiple of only those three basic systems!

If you're not willing to be wrong, you'll never do anything creative.
(he's also VERY funny)
Sir Ken Robinson (Ted Talk)
Sir Ken Robinson is author of Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative, and a leading expert on innovation and human resources. In this talk, he makes an entertaining (and profoundly moving) case for creating an education system that nurtures creativity, rather than undermining it. (Recorded February, 2006 in Monterey, CA.)

Motion Capture is a technique that translates motions into 3D-files. Motion capture is mostly used for animations in movies and computer games. Front have used the technique to simply record the tip of a pen when they draw pieces of furniture in the air.
Rapid Prototyping is a technique that materialises 3D-files. A laser beam builds the 3D-file layer by layer within a liquid plastic material. Every 0.1mm the liquid harden by a laser beam. After a few hours, the 3D-files come out as materialised pieces.
