These Haiti's laptops are a mix of secured and unsecured XO-1s. They are
Give1Get1 redonations, mostly running Release 10.1.3 untouched, we'll be
upgrading on the ground in Haiti within days.
We'd love if the longstanding
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Customization_stick could be fixed on 13.1.0
(worked like a charm less than a year ago) but yep that may not be
possible this week.
Thanks Kevin & Tony for interim solutions-
