Currently awaiting shipment of my OLPC from The States to me in Leeds, UK. A chemist by trade working at the university.

Have it now toying around with it. If anyone is near Leeds and wants to try a mesh network drop me a line here.

Hi Koolkat. I'm in London, unfortunately, and I don't think the mesh will reach that far! I'm going to try and gather together a load of UK xo owners for a meetup in London at some point though, if you're interested. Frankie Roberto 19:17, 22 March 2008 (EDT)
