my adventures with technology

olpc – the ugly

been using this thing for a while. a few _major_ problems:

1. the mouse randomly jumps all over the place. this stinks. here's what olpc says:

2. the sugar "frame" keeps popping up all the time. annoying.

UPDATE: I installed xfce on it, got flash working, tried to use it as a "laptop", but am not happy at all with it. Way underpowered, small keyboard, quirky, just not for me. Sorry, look for it to be auctioned on eBay sooner or later.
