We need to do a lot of work on the localization, a lot. There hopefully
will be a renewed effort on this from our team starting next week.
There aren't 40 spare XO's. A chunk of those will go to the teachers
(10-15) leaving some for spares and we may have a special class for kids
not in the lucky grades 2 & 6 can learn how to use the XO.
