I do pretty well with a QWERTY keyboard, since I've been using one all 
my life, starting with an old Underwood typewriter. I don't think I want 
to try to learn the Dvorak keyboard at this point. I have enough 
frustrations in my life. :-) Thanks for the tip, though.


Actually I did start playing the guitar again after my stroke. I did OK 
and can strum a little with my right hand, but I certainly won't win any 
awards. Can you play a guitar with just one hand?


Thanks,
Charlie

Try and get a left-handed-dvorjak keyboard layout. If you're on windows
you should be able to find a key mapping somewhere. It'll then take some
getting used to :-) but it should make life easier. I swear by
trackballs and ergonomic keyboards, then other people curse when they
use my workstation (at one job, I had my ergonomic and an ordinary
keyboard plugged in, for people borrowing my desk. I don't think I went
as far as trackball plus mouse, though).

Another tip, learn to play piano or classical guitar - it'll improve
your typing :-) There are a few pieces specially written for left hand
(a famous pianist lost his right hand in the Great War).

I'm actually right-handed, left-eyed, which means I'm forced to be
partially ambidextrous.

Wol

I'd probably have major difficulty, but then I'm a classical guitarist -
which is why I'm a six-fingered typist. My left hand is fine, but I
hunt-n-peck with the first two fingers on my right hand.

But if you can strum, and manage the chord changes with the left hand,
it should certainly help. How much control do you have with right hand?
If you can manage to finger-pick it might help in lots of ways - then
again it might not. If you think you can do it, get an easy classical
guitar tutor and have a go.

Sorry to hear about the stroke though, I've much enjoyed the chatting on
the list(s) over the years, and it's not the news one wants to hear. I
can understand your frustrations, I'm a carer, and while I'm not looking
after someone who's had a stroke it's still easy to see how difficult it
is. It's so frustrating to have to teach my wife how to use her laptop -
things she knows how to do but doesn't know how to do. She'll know she
knew but she doesn't have a clue - and then it just comes back as if it
never went!

Check out www.YouRockGuitar.com.  It is a digital guitar with an electronic 
fretboard (having no strings there).  Among other features, It is intended to 
be played by righties with just the left hand on the fretboard... called 
shredding.

I have a YouRock and I like it but so far... Carnegie Hall has not called me to 
schedule a performance.

[U2] CallableStatement usage, was 10.3 JDBC Driver

2012-11-05 Thread John Hester
Thanks, Bill.  At this point it looks like the problem is with the 3rd
party app that's using the JDBC client drivers.  The application isn't
properly handling the UV response following a successful update.  We're
going to try to use CallableStatement to call a BP that will do the
update instead, but the documentation is vague on how to pass the data.
This brings me to my next question:

Can anyone give me a simple example of using CallableStatemnt via JDBC
to pass a handful of variables to a UV subroutine and return back a
success or failure message?  This is the example from the documentation:

String sql = call *HS.OLEDBACCTS(?);
CallableStatement stmt = con.prepareCall( sql );
stmt.registerOutParameter(1, -1);
ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery();
System.out.println( HS.OLEDBACCTS returns :  + stmt.getString( 1
));

I'm assuming there is a corresponding registerInParameter that I would
need to use in addition to registerOutParameter, but there is no
reference to either in the documentation aside from this one example.

Thanks,
John

John:

Related to this... I have been unable to get UV JDBC to talk to the new
ColdFusion 10.

At one time I wrote cribbed a little Java program based on the Rocket
manual and... from that... was able to figure out the problem and get it
to work.

Since Adobe moved CF-10 from their own J2EE platform to TomCat... I have
concluded that I need to update our Rocket UV to the latest first.

Of course, there are some third-party things available for purchase.

Does anyone know if there are any issues using the 10.3 JDBC client
drivers on Windows 2008 R2 x64 on the client end?  We had no issues with
installation, but are having some connectivity issues that may or may
not be related.

Thanks,

[U2] XLr8 Tools for Unidata and Universe Update [ad]

2012-11-05 Thread Doug Averch
We just added functionality to allow the use the XLr8Editor for dictionary
items that are really not dictionary items, like SB+ definitions on the
last version.  We did not give you a way to refresh the XLr8Dictionary
Editor for new values.  The additional items were added to the dictionary
file in Unidata or Universe as well as your local directory.  By the way
the local directory is used for Version Control, so your dictionary items
are under control.  There is now a refresh icon to re-display the
XLr8Dictionary grid.

Here is the change log as well:

v3.5.15 - November 05, 2012
   Bugzilla [Bug 481] - XLr8Editor Item list view Link with Editor is now
working
   XLr8Developer fixed option so radio buttons have an event.
   XLr8Dictionary Editor Table rows where the mod state column is “dirty”,
or local does not match remote,now have in the tooltip message specific
info about this state.
   XLr8Dictionary Editor Added refresh command has been added to help when
adding non-native dictionaries
