python vs c++ as first programming language for young children

With the Raspberry Pi nearly here, it’s time to make the decision.

I had decided I would teach my kids C++, but I understand it’s a little steeper of a learning curve than some other languages.

I’ve heard a lot of people recommend Python. I would have to learn it along with them, which I don’t object to, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the trouble.

The oldest is almost 7.

Saving outlook reminders/emails

Does anybody know how to do this for microsoft outlook? I need to reformat my computer and I really do not want to lose all my reminders/emails. I know this can be done by saving certain files however I’m not sure which ones.


Also, don’t forget to grab your outlook.nk2 file as that’s the one that contains your autocomplete entries from the to and cc boxes.

What about the reminders. Isn’t there a file holding that information. I’ll be honest I’m more worried about the reminders than e-mails.

Best method for uploading shell scripts to remote SVN repository? (OSX)

I have to upload shell scripts to a remote SVN in order to keep versioning offsite.

I tried all day to get xcode to work with the remote SVN but apparently 4.2 is just too buggy for it. I even tried to uninstall and install a previous version but I kept getting errors during installation.

So my question is what would be a good alternative? I could use command line svn but a gui would be easier for the projects I’ll be doing.

Is their an easier method to build my daily work route than trackroad.com and Garmin?

I recently started a job that takes me to up to 50 residences a day. I was using trackroad.com to build a route and their iPhone app but I didn’t like that it uses my phone all day.

I then got a Garmin 2460LMT and have been adding routes to it daily that I build on trackroad.com, but this is somewhat of a lengthy process. To do this, I first download a .csv (Excel) file from my company’s website that has all my stops for the day. I then upload this file to trackroad.com which builds an optimized route based on location. I then download a.gpx file from trackroad.com which I then upload to the 2460 and wait for it to do its thing.
