  Hi, Joe,

  One of such things would be the QuickGuide help system that comes
with Etoys.  Open it and click on the question mark button.  There are
bunch of tools explained in the interactive way.

  At least I think we can soon officially release the Squeakland-OLPC.

> Slightly less frustrated

  That's good; but please remember that you frustrated many others by
starting the thread with a claim like "eToys dead".
