Ram & I would like to officially thank you for your donations and support in our efforts to get a computer lab set up in El Porvenir, Honduras! The non profit we were working with – Honduras Child Alliance – was greatly appreciative of the lab and they’re already brainstorming ways to use this awesome resource in an integrated way with their curriculum and programs.
These sorts of projects can’t be done without the support of friends and community like you! Again, thank you. Please enjoy the following video of our time in El Porvenir and the setting up of the lab.

Veterans Can Use Post-9/11 GI Bill Benefits to Pay for IT Training and Certification
Veterans and transitioning military members interested in building a career in IT after their service in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars can use their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to pay for IT training and certification. Since October 2011, the benefits can be used to pay for IT training via non-college degree training programs, as well as graduate and undergraduate degree programs.
Here’s how to do it.
A veteran’s best source of information about the Post 9/11 GI Bill is the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website http://www.gibill.va.gov. Unless noted, the information that follows is from the GI Bill website.
Veterans, service members and their families use the VA’s eBenefits website, to research, find, apply for, and, in time, manage Post-9/11 GI Bill education benefits, along with other VA benefits.
