The software we’re using

Posted on: July 26, 2009

When we came to Guyana we didn’t quite know what to expect in terms of the hardware or software that would be available. As it happens, some of the best software available doesn’t cost a penny so we brought a memory stick stuffed with free software.

At various stages of the course we’ll be using:

A number of the students clearly don’t lose much sleep worrying about copyright infringement, but the number of viruses we’ve encountered shows the problem with using ‘unofficial’ copies of software.

If we can get more people using the great, freely available software that’s out there then so much the better.

I feel the need to point out in relation to the previous post that in actuality we are not eating the software.

Hi Chris – I just sent Hugh an email with a couple of tips/suggestions. Approximately a month too late. Hope all’s going well.
