Looks like I'm able to reach you! I am sure there are others as well,
who have similar problems.

This isn't the case. I am not sure about Amit's involvement (I can't
speak for him) but I am still working with DBF. We just got olpc
Hyderabad off the ground and have a batch of XO-1s in a school there.

Yes, please let us know if it works. Folks at 1CC (OLPC Foundation)
find their office environs too pristine to test this hack, but the
field should yield better results.

It would be useful to hear from your deployment on how the project is
going with the XOs, both on the Sugar side and the XtraOS side. Would
you be up for someone working with you to document some of these? If
so, do let me know onlist or at sve...@sfsu.edu
