Disabling keyboard on Debian so you can do a video call on your laptop with an infant and he doesn't hang up on grandma

The kid would much rather bang on the laptop keyboard than have a video call with grandma.

But banging on the keyboard inevitably leads to an early hang-up.

So disable the keyboard.

To deal with that pesky infinite carriage return problem, and make it easy to reenable the keyboard, make a couple of shell scripts, save them to the desktop, and you can double-click to disable, and double-click the other one to enable.

Juniper VPN on 64-bit Ubuntu

First, I installed 32-bit firefox and ran it just to run the VPN.

Then I discovered this: http://askubuntu.com/questions/136194/juniper-setup-on-12-04 and it worked on Firefox for awhile, but then stopped working for no reason I could figure out.

So I switched to using Chrome per these instructions: http://arecordon.blogspot.com.ar/2013/07/ubuntu-junipers-network-on-ubun... and it seems to be working again

MK reports the following worked for him:
* sudo apt-get install  libc6-i386

Corn Tortillas

Not that it's worth writing a recipe for, but I don't do it enough to remeber...

How is babby named?

I made a post over at Splunk about searching the SSA baby names database: http://blogs.splunk.com/2013/10/31/how-is-babby-named/

Hibiscus/Jamaica Syrup

From Simply Recipes, but with a little less sugar.

When diluted 1:1 with water, this has ~1/6 the sugar by volume as coke (1.5g/4oz vs. 10g/4oz)

Tapioca Pudding

"Adapted" from 101 cookbooks, which is to say I tripled the amount of tapioca, added coconut, and put the egg whites back in.

This is a pantry buster - you bought some tapioca for something and now you need to get rid of it. The coconut too - we bought it for carrot cake, but flake is not the best for cake, shredded is better.

Genoa Vodka

Traditionally with Campari, but I always substitute Aperol for Campari always under all circumstances everywhere.

Smoky Orange

Similar I guess to the "MacArthur" in this suspicious list of whisky cocktails

Cherried brandy is the liquid from brandied cherries, of course!
