Exam software on Chrome Books

I have been using a Chromebook for a bit. It looks like a great solution for student computing. Cheap, no software hassles, and automatic backup into the cloud.

Her law-lib message of February 6, 1992, available at includes mention of Teknoids.

Converting videos from an older Real Producer Helix server

We have some RealMedia videos on an older Real Producer Helix server. We'd
like to convert those videos to a more modern format. They currently are
in "RM" format, and we want them to be MP4s.

We are running into a few difficulties. We've tried RealPlayer Cloud, but
the videos converted with an odd, vertical format (as if we filmed them
with iPhones, which we did not).
