Fixed system clock

Mine came with the correct time zone, but the clock was off. I set it to the NIST clock and sync'd the hardware clock. Saved link to how to do this in [1]

Disabled Hot Corners

There's at least one thing about the standard Sugar interface which most users want to change. This is also known as the frame-shrink fix, and other names.

This requires just commenting out two lines in /usr/share/sugar/shell/view/frame/ (as root, in Terminal):

   def _create_invisible(self, x, y, width, height):
       invisible = gtk.Invisible()
#        invisible.connect('enter-notify-event', self._enter_notify_cb)
#        invisible.connect('leave-notify-event', self._leave_notify_cb)
