Cool, you have a real laptop.
You have the advantage there, I must use qemu :-(
BTW, how does one get hold of a OLPC board?

It's not about *the* solution, but as pygame was announced as the

The purpose of democracy is to make sure that wealthy people cannot
have influence proportional to their wealth. And if they do have more

that they obtain in this way have no moral authority, but they have
the capability of doing harm.
