Joe continued his Server Analysis project.
Richard helped Kieran download & install Hamachi server, and used the GUI called Haguichi for configuration and administration. Kieran could then join Richard’s Minecraft Server.
Les was working on a sensor Robot which was partially successful but failing on finding direction.
Tony also helped Elizabeth with a panel issue on Mint 17. The panel was accidentally removed & efforts to restore were partial & not acceptable.
If anyone else has this issue the following command restores the panel back to its original state: –
sudo mate-panel –reset
Many thanks to those who provided this week’s brain food and to Michael for providing the Space and the coffee.
