I'll fill in my responses in your message. Boy! These builds come along fast. I haven't had time to test 59 yet and 60 is here already!
Is there supposed to be a firmware update along with 60? It was mentioned in the email Adam forwarded, but there was no link.

I'll try it again. Right now I have 59 installed so I'll use it. I will also time it to see how long it takes to happen. It may be longer than I thought.

First I clicked on the stop sign icon. That took me to the Journal. I tried the F3 key to go home. It didn't work. From the Journal I was able to get back to TamTam and to the other Activities in the Journal, but when they were closed I ended up back in the Journal. I was locked in!

No, just the laptop. I hope someday a small piano-type will be able to interface with the XO.

No, just the Home View key

I'll check it out and let you know one way or another what happens.
