Welcome, Gryphus!

Welcome to the One Laptop per Child wiki. Please make yourself at home; read through the Table of Contents and FAQ, and take a look around. If you need a general wiki-tutorial, Wikieducator has some excellent ones.

Some possible pages of interest:

  • OS images for emulation - if you're interested in playing around with Sugar on your computer. There are also people working on getting Sugar running on vmware, which is a little easier than the current Windows method (if you use Windows).
  • OLPC_Human_Interface_Guidelines - for designing interfaces. This page also gives good background on the design of the Sugar interface and laptop specs.
  • Choosing_image_formats - notes on uploading images to the wiki.
  • Community:Art - you seem to have found this already, but if you haven't...

I'm your friendly neighborhood moderator for the art community, as well as the head of the Olin College OLPC chapter. Your art looks gorgeous, and your experience teaching is a big plus. If you'd be interested in developing art related curriculum or posting tutorials for the art community, both would be great ways to contribute unique content. Feel free to leave me a note on my talk page if you have any quetions or comments. -Nikki

Just a friendly poke

There a bunch of open art projects listed right now, so if you have some spare time, look them over and see if there any that appeal to you. --Nikki 21:56, 10 December 2007 (EST)

Woops, such a tardy response about TIFF

Sorry it took me so long to respond but I missed your note on my talk page! Yes, TIFF would work well. There are also SVGs going on - take a look at the ones that Jon has been working on and also see Seth's Art needed for Simplified user guide page... Seth is doing the nice print layout and has good ideas for art. Again, apologies for my late response! annegentle 22:51, 10 December 2007 (EST)

No worries

It's tricky getting used to the wiki - I wasn't sure how to navigate and find what I wanted for the first month or two I was on it. I guess building the structure for Community:Art was a pretty good introduction though...

Anyway, the best thing to do would probably be to add Art Wanted to your watchlist (there's a 'watch' option on the upper tab bar of every page). Then when you check your watchlist you'll notified whenever someone posts a new project or task. --Nikki 01:00, 11 December 2007 (EST)

SUG Page 6

Thanks for the contribution Gryphus. SUG's Art_needed page is pretty messy so feel free to add whatever you like there, suggestions or submissions. But please proceed whatever you add with a colon ':' which will tab whatever you say to the right. This makes it a lot more clear to see what's been added to the page. Also, go ahead and sign your comments with four '~', it will expand into your username and a time/date-stamp.

About your image. It's a pretty good, simple, line drawing of the XO. Unfortunately (and wiki documentation isn't very clear about this) it's one of a B2, not the Mass Production model. There aren't any keyboard lights on the final version. This is another reason that the image that I have won't work. :S is for Insects 13:49, 11 December 2007 (EST)

If you'd like, I can send pictures of a C machine. Well, technically, it's a B4, but in a newer case... We're borrowing one for testing, and I can snap some pictures for you before we return it. --Nikki 17:47, 11 December 2007 (EST)
Sorry I'm being slow about the pics - I will get them to you by Christmas though! Now that school is finally out I actually have time to do things. --Nikki 21:48, 23 December 2007 (EST)

XO pics

Pictures are on my [Flickr] account. Hope this helps. --Nikki 02:35, 25 December 2007 (EST)


Hiya, Gryphus. There are some more art requests open, so if you have the time you should hop over to Art Wanted and check it out.
