I got my hands on an OLPC XO last night. It's a curious, interesting, portable, fun tool. And if no one else borrows it tonight, I'll flash it and see if I can get the mesh working.

You can get your hands on an OLPC XO too and do a good deed at the same time. See: http://www.xogiving.org/

As Ron Popeil says, in general, "It makes a great gift!"


The One Laptop Per Child program tried to create a $100 laptop. It has created a very cutting edge $200 laptop and intends to put them in the hands of children all over the world. You can help by buying a couple (and keeping one of them.)

I find myself at times just typing fanciful, farcical, non-sensical, valueless comments (in chats and email.... ) I've come to call this behavior typologorrhea. However, there is a blogger already using typorhea as his nickname and that's probably a more accurate term. I was surprised to find no Google hits for typologorrhea so I've just recorded it in my blog for posterity.

Alternate spelling would be tyoplogorhea (with one r.)
