“While in Latin America, Bush visitedÂ the ancient Mayan ruins. He
then invited their officials to come visit our ruinsÂ — the Walter
Reed Medical Center.” –Jay Leno
“Outrage today from manyÂ Americans, especially the gay ones, over
comments made by General Peter Pace,Â the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs
of Staff. He said he believes homosexuality isÂ immoral. The general
went on to say that allowing immorality in the armed forcesÂ could
distract our troops from killing.”
“RudyÂ Giuliani has defended NewtÂ Gingrich, saying it’s okay Newt had
an affair and that no one is perfect. That’sÂ when you know the
Republicans are in trouble — when a guy with three marriagesÂ and an
affair is defending the guy with three marriages and two affairs, so
theyÂ can team up and beat a Clinton.” –Jay Leno
“You see all those peopleÂ protesting while President Bush was in
South America? Bush hasn’t heard thatÂ many people shouting ‘Gringo go
home’ since his last trip to L.A.” –JayÂ Leno
“Thirty towns in Vermont have voted to impeach President Bush, butÂ
Bush says he doesn’t care what a bunch of Canadians think.”
“Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel — he’s a Republican
— called a press
conference to announce he’ll be making a decision about running for
president sometime later in the year. So, he called a press conference
to say maybe laterÂ in the year he’s going to say something important.
This is the kind of bold, decisive leadership this country needs.”
“People are sayingÂ Scooter Libby is taking the fall for Cheney.
Personally, I think Libby got offÂ easy — usually when you take one
for Cheney, it’s a shot in the face” –JayÂ Leno
“Beautiful, beautiful day in New York City. … It was so nice thatÂ
Ann Coulter was insulting gays in the park.” –David Letterman
“AfterÂ visiting Guatemala, Bush flew to Mexico.
There was an awkward moment
when BushÂ greeted the Mexicans by saying, ‘Hello future
“Scooter Libby was found guilt of perjury, obstruction, andÂ making
false statements — or, as the White House calls it, a press
conference.”Â –Bill Maher
“The president is … on a five-nation tour of LatinÂ America. A lot
of people are saying while he’s below the border, what a greatÂ time
to build that wall.” –Bill Maher
“To give you an idea of howÂ popular Bush is not …
in South America, he’s
going to visit on Monday theÂ sacred Mayan ruins, and after he leaves
the Mayan priests are going to perform aÂ purification ceremony … to
get rid of the bad spirits. … And if it worksÂ there, they’re going
to try it in Iraq, New Orleans, Guantanamo Bay, Ground ZeroÂ and the
atmosphere of the planet Earth.”
“While he wasÂ there, Bush did an interview with the Brazilian press
and he said the mostÂ difficult decision a president could ever make
is sending troops into harm’sÂ way. But enough about Walter Reed.”
“Obviously, this hasÂ come at a bad time for the White House. Usually,
you want the conviction of aÂ high-ranking official and the
veterans-sleeping-in-moldy-rat-holes stories on different days.” –Jon
wonderful … but it misses the wonderful W floating in a bubble into the middle of the Quarter, only to give a bad speech, promise any & everything, and disappear like the cowardly a**hole he is

1. Stable build: After a final few bugs that had hidden in corners
were driven into the light, we issued Stable Build 303 along with
Q2B76 firmware this week. Highlights of this stable build include:
(a) a working mesh network;
(b) an updated web browser that scales on our high-resolution screen,
making for improved web experience;
(c) Gnash-the FOSS Flash player (still somewhat
unstable)-pre-installed; Adobe’s Flash 9 is also known to work, but
not packaged or installed as part of the build;
(d) a touch-pad driver fix for jumping cursor: the touch pad should be
more usable, and the tablet is enabled on B2 systems; and
(e) boot time has improved due to a scheduler fix.
Please read the release notes, which are found in the wiki at
2. Activities: There are some new activities in the new build:
* Blockparty (aka Tetris) was written by Vadim Gerasimov and John
* Slideshow was written by Erik Blankinship and Marco Gritti; and
* Journal “Preview” (a first pass at the journal activity) was written
by Marco and Tomeu Vizoso.
3. Community: Mauro Torres and the team from the Tuquito Project in
Argentina have put together a calculator activity that will appear in
soon in our builds. They are working on a extensions that will let the
children explore their calculations in notational form as well as get
4. Kernel: While Andres Salomon was working on the new stable release,
he found (and fixed) a build-system bug/interaction that was keeping
fixes from hitting the stable kernel builds.
5. Richard Smith and John Watlington modified some B2 machines to ship
out to suspend/resume developers; these mods fix some known hardware
problems that only affect suspend/resume.
6. Q2B76: This firmware release should have a temporary work-around
for the problem that has been costing us about 1/3 of our system’s
performance whenever a network interface was alive on USB (either our
wireless or ethernet).
7. Mitch Bradley continued improvements to the suspend/resume code:
* time-to-resume is now down to 12 mS, except for the CAFE;
* reinit is working well; he can suspend/resume reliably without a
* suspend/resume is now working on B1 in addition to B2;
* the suspend routine is now independent of the virtual address from
which it is called.
Mitch also integrated Lilian Walter’s first cut at self-test
diagnostics into the experimental firmware.
8. Community II: William Cohen reported a major coup: he got the
system-level performance tool “oprofile” running on the Geode, and
immediately started posting very helpful performance data. We have
wanted this tool for quite a while, and have not had the time to do it
ourselves. Our great thanks to Bill.
9. Trac: The bug-tracking system has passed several milestones: more
than 1000 bugs reported and more than 250 people registered. Â Our
community is growing quickly (See dev.laptop.org).
10. Mesh status: Michail Bletsas and teams from Cozybit and Marvell
spent the past week doing intense debugging on the mesh firmware.
There were two serious bugs uncovered: mesh routing was erratic in
noisy environments (e.g., OLPC’s Cambridge office) and there was data
corruption observed during large file transfers. The first problem was
solved by allowing route request and reply frames to be sent at rates
as low as 1Mbps. The data corruption issue was tracked to MTUs (frame
sizes) larger than 1494 bytes. Firmware addressing the first issue was
released early this week and a fix for the second will be incorporated
in next week’s firmware build. (In the meantime, people should set the
MTU of msh0 to 1494 if they want to utilize the mesh interface). In
parallel a variety of driver issues were addressed and should be
pulled into the XO build next week, at which point the mesh substrate
will be fully functional.
11. Fun and games: Chris “sugarized” a game called Kye
(games.moria.org.uk/kye/pygtk) and posted the bundle to the
Sugar mailing list.
