comment Linux drivers for Richland Radeon HD 8550G graphics?
I found this page which is the first I have found to classify the Radeon HD8550M (not G like my card), and apparently it's the "oland" chipset in the "southern islands" family.

comment Wrong libc6 version in Debian Squeeze — can I go back?
Just a note, in my version of apt, -t stable had no effect. You needed to do "aptitude download lib6/stable" instead.

comment Writing debian iso to usb stick from windows results in 440kb filesystem with 1 file
Thank you! The program Rufus linked from the archlinux page worked for me, but I also realized that there was another issue going on where it would not recognize my flash drive if I left it plugged in through a reboot. I'm not sure if my other attempts would have worked if I removed and re-inserted the flash drive when booting. In any case, I was able to successfully install Debian.

comment Webcam software for streaming and playing that can be configured
I found that most of the delay was due to caching behavior. On the server be sure to manually set "live capture caching" and "stream output muxer caching" and on the client receiving the video be sure to set "network caching" All three are additive and I think the default settings put the latency at two seconds bare minimum just by the amount of buffering done.

comment How to transfer a file over pen and paper, with error correction
Thanks, I'll probably use this, but it still doesn't solve the error correction problem.

That's interesting, unfortunately, this requires a scanner or some other imaging system attached to the computer to work.

No. I made a 28K rar file. Added recovery volumes to it with >50% recovery volumes. Base64 encoded it. Deleted six characters from the contents and added two. Base64 decoded it. rar COULD NOT recover the file. That is completely unacceptable for any sort of use that I've described. I'm not sure what "well enough for most people" is, but if it cannot correct a 0.02% error rate with >50% redundancy, then it certainly is not well enough for me. I don't care if it's something specifically designed for hand transcribing, but yes, my question is what can I use that will work.

comment How to transfer a file over pen and paper, with error correction
See, that's what I have the problem with: "you would have a program to encode the data"...no, I don't. I don't have a program to do this, and I don't know of any program to do this. I am also not aware of any file format that can gracefully handle a byte removed (not erased) from near the beginning of the file on top of other errors. I definitely agree that these are methods for increasing data density, but that's not my primary concern now, it's ease of reading/writing and error protection.

Color blindness is more of a dimensionality reduction of color space than it is a selective inability to see certain colors. I mean, I probably could pull off Black, Blue, Yellow, Red, Green, Gray, but not much more
