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.

* sudo apt-get install  libc6-i386

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.
