I've decided to migrate to a better Internet-based phone system — one that works would be nice — and as an experiment I'm trying to use some open source software. All's well, but of course each open source package relies on another open source package, and so and and so forth.
One package, often called "curses," controls the cursor on your terminal screen. I have a version installed, but for some reason my computer couldn't seem to find that version when I tried to use it. I've come up with a work-around, but I dread trying to get this straightened out "upstream" with the people who make up the packages...
Disaggregation works wonders with computers, but we on the leading edge have to invest work to make it safe for the rest of humanity.
