This was the original set of activities.
There is a separate column on the spreadsheet for the updates (3) which 
also worked.
I wanted a benchmark of what is shipped stock. The XO-1.5 arrived yesterday

No. I closed each one after testing. switched to f3 list view and 
started the next one.
Did this all the way down list. Then did update from control panel and 
tested them.
The Download of Darwin's Origin of the species.pdf and one picture, 
video (10sec) and sound recording from record
may have also added to the load in the journal. But this is not unusual 
usage for someone exploring a new Computer.
