Well, Dang.

We just got mail saying that the XO Laptop for Zach won’t arrive until at least January 15th. On the one hand, I’m glad they let us know so I can stop frantically hitting <refresh> on Fedex’s website, but I’m sad because he won’t have it for his vacation.
I am consolidated knowing that our contribution is still helping the OLPC project, and somewhere in central or southern America, a child -will- get a laptop because of our contribution, but I still wish Zach had his for the winter break.
He’s happily spending time working with Scratch on his desktop machine anyway, so at least when the XO does get here, there’ll be an environment he’s already familiar with on it.

  1. An LJ friend of mine got her laptop yesterday, and then this morning got an email saying “Sorry, but your laptop won’t be arriving before Dec. 24.”

  2. So, now is probably not the time to say one of ours is sitting in my room, charging as we speak, huh? 🙂 Believe it or not, it’s been here 24hrs and I haven’t even turned it on.

    Yep, not the time. I’m not listening! La la la!
