The pages provided here are meant to serve as a resource to provide useful information so it might not look that fancy. If you have trouble accessing these disablity resource pages please write me.

These pages were created and are maintained solely by Jim Lubin, who is a C2 quadriplegic, completely paralyzed from the neck down and dependent on a ventilator to breathe, using an keyboard/mouse emulator with a sip and puff switch to type morse codes. This site has been online since 1994.

I have been busy with other projects, so this web site might not get updated as frequently as it had been in the past. Information will be updated when I have time.

This site can now be reached using the shorter URL www.makoa.org. “Makoa” is a Hawaiian word that means “courageous”.

Comments and/or suggestions are welcome!
Please use this form if you know any sites to add.

  1. Please let me know if you’re looking for a author for your weblog. You have some really great articles and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some articles
    for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please send me an
    e-mail if interested. Cheers!

  2. May I simply just say what a comfort to find a person that truly knows what
    they are discussing on the internet. You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and
    make it important. More people should read this and understand this side
    of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular given that you surely possess the gift.

    1. Thank you very much for the comment. I haven’t done as much as I would like with Carlton’s Room. Please continue to visit and spread the word about the blog. I’ll have more information coming soon.
