Yes Caryl. We are still planning on going. I haven't registered though. Hope
it's not too late. :-(
Will let you know when our plans solidify...which reminds me...I have to get
going on planning for that one!!
Another question for Mike and others, is there an easier way to get the
pictures taken from GNOME to Sugar? Sorry I am very mildly illiterate when
it comes to software related question. I'm asking because one of our
Squeakland members is working on a water purification unit for Haiti and
thinking of integrating the use of microscope to magnify things in the
water. But how to easily paste pictures that the children took to EToys?
