comment WinXP: connecting to AdHoc network
It sounds like you've got multiple devices you can use to attempt to the ad-hoc and none of them can connect successfully? Or am I reading that wrong?

comment Cheap or DIY Keyboard Overlays?
@squook - I'd agree with you for one keyboard, but with multiple kids, I think $300 for 10 keyboards is money better spent on other educational materials.

re: office with a door. It must have 4 walls and be devoted solely to work in order to claim it on taxes in the US. Might look into it ahead of time if Canada does anything similar.

Some of that didn't match up, I'll have to suss out whether it's because this is an XP-specific KB or because I'm missing some registry keys.

comment When to grant admin rights
Other than some help with the inital development image, IT does NOT generally support these VMs. If you bork it, you grab a fresh copy. This makes it easy to combine with the scorched earth policy below. If/when they hose their desktop OS, it doesn't have an impact on their (virtual) development environment.
