I agree -- the main thing is confirming that 
someone has a laptop that can run all off the 
games and such.

So for powerpoint presentations, please bring 
them on usb mini drives and cds (just in 
case...). I think Thomas was figuring out if he 
could run other games on his laptop so maybe we 
use his laptop as the presentation laptop that is 
hooked up to the projector. Thomas? Thoughts?

For the accessibility arcade, that's a bit of a 
different story since we'll have those set up in 
another part of the room all day. I am looking 
into security issues on people's computers (like 
some sort of lock system that would keep machines 
from "walking") now and will let you know what I 
find out.

Hope I didn't confuse things even more!
