Ricardo Moran - A little big revolution towards accesibility!

Hi, people!

Today, I am very proud of announcing that Physical Etoys has eye tracking capabilities because we’ve added the Tobii EyeX tracker device.  The good thing of doing this development is that children can make projects  for people who can only move their eyes! We are letting them communicate, learn, play and explore the world in a better way :)

Spread the voice and share our happiness!


¡Hola, gente!

Les estamos permitiendo comunicarse, aprender, jugar y explorar el mundo de una forma mejor :)

Joachim Tuchel - YouTube fixed my printer

Today I had a problem with my (oldish) Epson Stylus SX600FW printer. The display said “Paper Jam” and the whole box would refuse to do anything. After a few tries to remove all the paper pieces it still insisted on jammed paper. I used air spray, a pocket lamp, opened a few screws (always a […]

Pharo Weekly - QuickAccess


I quickly wrote yet another small tool to work faster with Pharo. I call it 
"QuickAccess" - it's some kind of "ScriptManager 2.0" allowing you
to quickly access actions (defined as code scripts) via Spotter, Menu, Button, etc. 

You can load it from Spotter/Catalog in Pharo 5.0 beta.

The following video demonstrates how to use it:

The defined structure including the scripts can be exported to a file 
and send around. So far it is "complete" for my own requirements - if you
feel something is missing you can contribute and help moving it forward.

The repo is at!/~TorstenBergmann/QuickAccess
Contact me with your STHub account if you need access.

The tool has some similarities with Playground/script cache, but GT tools
lack the category structuring for scripts that you find in QuickAccess.
It might be an inspiration for a future unified script management solution
in Playground.

Have fun!
