  • Bandwidth required for high quality desktop sharing?

    I'm researching desktop sharing products for the possibility of using them to train people to play computer games. To make this practical it's pretty important we get a frame rate of at least 20 fps (these are slow puzzle games not fps or anything).

    I'm trying to get an idea of what kind of system requirements this would need for the users. What kind of upload and download speeds they'd need?

    Also are there any products or services that do a better job of compressing this stuff then others?

    I don't need a list of services that offer desktop sharing as I've already don that research. I just need advice on bandwidth requirements and any service that gives a better performance to bandwidth payoff (assume this would be done with compression).

  • How do I teach my 4 year old daughter to run?

    My daughter has a lot of trouble running, she's in soccer this year and gets frustrated because she so much slower then all the other kids she has no chance of catching them.

    She has a tendency to hop/gallop when she tries to run, when she's not doing that she flails her arms and legs using up most of her effort on that then actually moving forward.

    Any ideas on how I can teach her to run properly? Anything I can teach her to practice to get better?

  • McCain VP alternatives?

    Of course there was a wide range of men McCain could have picked with better on paper qualifications then Palin.

    However If you were going to pick a conservative woman under 55 was there a more experienced option then Palin? If so who and what is her experience? (Not counting Condi rice who was not interested)

  • Please provide me arguments for and against pantheism?

    I would like to be presented with arguments for and against pantheism ?

    (the doctrine or belief that God is the universe and its phenomena (taken or conceived of as a whole) or the doctrine that regards the universe as a manifestation of God )

    Rational well thought arguments that specifically deal with pantheism verses monotheism will be most appreciated. I value links to websites with such arguments or discussions as well.

    I do not need arguments for atheism, as that is not the subject I'm currently researching. I'm also not interested in solely biblical or other religious text based argument.

    I'm only interested in philosophically based arguments.

  • Reasonable Stock Photography?

    I've been designing websites for a while and have come to the conclusion that most professional looking websites include actual photographs of actual people.

    Where is the best place to get these photographs and use them legally? Most websites I've seen want almost $100 for a single low-resolution photo? Is this the only way to get these photos or is there a better option?

  • Information about religious science/ science of the mind?

    I'm interested in learning as much as I can about religious science, which is also known as science of the mind. I'd like a list of sources for my own research both sources defending and explaining the beliefs (and history) and sources that "attack" or question the beliefs. A mix of internet and book sources would be really great.

    (Yes, Atheists I know from your point of view the term religious science is an oxy moron, not that I’ve pointed that out there’s no need to barrage me with a bunch of posts of that nature.)

  • HOA vs Mortgage foreclosure?

    This month we've come to the sad realization that we need to give up and let our home go into foreclosure ( I'm not looking for advice on how to "save" it.) We were already behind on our HOA dues and had paid 1,000 or 2,000 owed to the collection company. Now because we'll be 5 days late on the second half they want to charge us an extra $500.

    So we're thinking we may just not pay it. My question is how will it effect us if our HOA forecloses before our mortgage company?

    By the way, I live in California. I'd really like authoritative references if you can provide them.

  • When you see a watch?

    I assume this has been asked before but I want to see what kind of answers I get.

    When you see a working watch how do you assume it come to be a working watch?

    A. Do you assume the elements that make up the watch gradually formed in that shape over billions of years and through a massive number of unimaginable coincidences it became of functional time piece without any logical force of any kind?

    B. Do you assume someone made it?

    Why would the creation of our universe be any different?

  • How do you center menu with css regardless of user text size.?

    I have a site at (in case it gets cut off that's .info). I've worked very hard to get it as accesible as possible but text size changes just kill me.

    The worst part right now is my menu shifts when the text size changes. I have it centered when the text is medium size, but if it changes the menu shifts left or right.

    How do I prevent this, I'd rather the text size still change but I want the menu to stay put.

  • What would you charge to make this website?

    I designed this website at www.curetype2diabetes.inf o . I already billed them but I think I under charged. I want to get an idea of how much I should have charged so I know for the future.

    I not only planned the whole layout and entered all of the content ( I re-worded some of the content but did not write it.). But I also created the header logo, the book cover and the free vacation logo. On top of that I setup the paypal e-commerce which might not look like much but require PHP and MYSQL. Also, speed was very important to my client so I finished the job in less than in a week. Keep in mind the site include 24 total pages and has been completely hand coded in CSS and XHTML.

  • Where can I find graphics that i can use on my web page?

    I'm getting into the who webpage design thing, but I'm much more a programmer then designer, so when it comes to graphics and generic photos I'm hoping to find a source of graphics and photos (even if I need to pay) that I can legally use on my sites.

    I'll probably combine and tweak them some, but for someone who lacks in the artistic area, a starting point is very helpful.

    Any suggestions of the best website or product for this purpose?

  • Automatically Remove specific lines from .htaccess?

    I'm working on a website that sells e-books. I already know i'm going to setup a system that orders through pay-pal and pay-pal will send me data through HTTP post that confirms the transaction is complete at which point PHP will add the customer's ip address to the htaccess file for the directory that stores the e-book that was ordered. A link will apear and they can download the e-book.

    What I want to know is the best way to remove thier access after a certain amount of time. I think give them 24 hours just in case something goes wrong.

  • E-book store using pay-pal?

    I'm working on an E-book store website that uses paypal to pay for the books then redirects the customer to the e-book for download.

    The problem is right now there's nothing to stop someone from entering the path and file name in thier browser and downloading it without paying.

    I want the simplest solution that still allows us to continue using pay pal. It doesn't have to be fully hacker proof but should be compatiable with Safari, Firefox, and IE 6 and up and some how verify they paid before allowing access.

    I'm looking at most likely a PHP or java script option but open to anything.

  • Camping in Sacramento Area?

    I'm looking for a good place to take my daughter (3 years old) camping. I want to keep it around $15-$20 a night, would like it to be a pretty easy drive (close to a highway if possible) so we can drive home at night if needed. I don't care about having plumbing but near a peaceful body of water with shore might be fun. If you missed it in the title I'm in the Sacramento area and want to keep the drive to no much more then 1 hour.
