They have trouble balancing on them.

We have only LCD monitors or laptops. ;-)

Funny you should mention that. In a sense, I have. Set her up with VMWare's Player (free!) and a VM that has Office 2007 installed. She teaches a couple of college courses and the students are all getting the student price on 2007 so that's what they send her.

(Also made her a PDF with instructions for saving backward to 2000-2003 format so they can give her something she can open; how many of them will read that ... remains to be seen).

So now she can fire up the VM, read the student work, save backward herself etc.

And as I mentioned to her, she can also use the VM to browse sites that she's not sure of. Lovely having "throwaway" computers to put in harm's way.

I read that to the guilty cat at this end. He seems to have enjoyed it as much as I did:

We have a similar problem here. I work with a non-profit that puts on a bicycle ride every year as a fundraiser. We're trying to do as much of our registration online as possible but the national organization INSISTS that we use their legal release form.

And of course, who knows who clicked "I agree" when it's on a web site. There's no way for us to be sure that the "signer" is of legal age.

We're still on paper and in-person for that. Not such a big deal, since we don't get many people who want to pay us to do the ride virtually.

He's a very entertaining cat.

Mischievous, but entertaining.
