What to bring for games

So here is the paperwork for each game:

* Each coach gets a packet that comes from SYSA and goes to each club registrar
* there are smaller sheets with carbon copy pages to be filled out for the ref for the games.
* Let’s see for reporting scores…the ref is suppose to report the scores. If no ref was there then you need to call the score in. The number and e-mail are at www.sysa.org under standings.

You should also bring your signed roster showing that everyone is age verified and all the medical forms in case someone is hurt.

Disable iPhone Backup Process

Disable iPhone Backup Process to Speed Up Slow Sync Process » My Digital Life

iPhone mobile device with firmware OS version 2.0 (including iPhone 3G) will make a full image backup of the iPhone device with all installed applications, instead of just documents and library data to computer (Mac or PC) during the synchronization process, each and every time when there is a change to the installed apps and games

Boot Camp

John, Sam and Louie were wondering exactly how to install Base Camp on their computer. Chris Pirillo explains it well:

How to Install Boot Camp on OS X ~ Chris Pirillo

# Use Spotlight to search for _Boot Camp Assistant_. Ah, there it is. The first thing it will do is ask if you want to print the instructions. I don’t want to, so I’m just going to click through.
# Next, it asks how much space you want to partition for use of Boot Camp. Ponzi will be doing a lot in Windows, so I’m going to allocate 25GB of space. Click the button to partition, and wait a couple of minutes for it to do so. This is a hard limit as the hard drive is divided forever more into a Mac section and a Windows section. I’d say 25GB is good if you are going to put games on it.
# Once it has finished partitioning, you’ll need to grab your Windows XP install disc. Simply put that in and let it run through setup. Amazingly, Windows just detects the Mac as a regular PC
# After that is done… you’re going to need to pop in the OS X disc and update drivers and things for Windows to run. When you install Windows using Boot Camp, you won’t need to search the Internet for drivers or burn a disc. After you run Boot Camp, simply insert the Leopard DVD to install the necessary drivers. The Leopard Install DVD is a frankenstein device. It is a Mac disk for installing OS X and on Windows, it looks like all the drivers you need to use the Mac hardware

Anagram Games

Found lots of anagram exercises on the web from Stanford and Duke in particular, but found one that is a simple game that is pretty easy to understand:

* “Devdaily”:http://www.devdaily.com/java/jwarehouse/netbeans-src/usersguide/j2seexamples/anagrams/src/com/toy/. This one is a little complicated, but basically it shows you a scrambled word and you have to figure out how to unscramble and turn it into a real word.

There are also lots of completed programs on the web and even whole sites devoted to it. That’s because anagrams are essentially what Scrabble players need. Take a jumble of letters and turn them into potential words and you can just google:”Anagram” to see literally dozens of games.

* “Wordsmith.org”:http://wordsmith.org/anagram/advanced.html. There is a whole site devoted to anagrams and a more advanced program that takes an entire phrase and converts it.
* “Andy’s Anagram Solver”:http://www.ssynth.co.uk/~gay/anagram.html Has a really big 132,000 word dictionary. See how many ways there are to scramble Lakeside! into French.
* “Brendan’s Anagram Generator”:http://www.mbhs.edu/~bconnell/cgi-bin/anagram.cgi. This one tries to take a word and turn it into English. It uses Evan’s program.
