Slow progress, but it's going. The curser pad wants human electricity. My fingernail gives better control than my finger pad. A stylus might work, but it would have to be copper, short, with good skin contact and smooth enough to leave the plastic undamaged over time. I'll stay with the fingernail.

Working while plugged into the wall outlet is not a problem.

Reading through the confused mess of the online documentation is painful and informative and mysterious and nonspecific/basic/pedestrian enough for my level of profound computer ignorance. So tell me how the little kid is supposed to figure this out again?

I think the neighborhood view is valuable. Don't yet know enough about mesh. I assume the green circles are hot and working now, but what is the half-filled blue circle with the padlock?

The screen goes to standby black after 10 minutes or so. That's a nice touch. Of course, I thought the machine had died until I pressed the Enter key.

I would sure like to meet with you guys. Word on the street is that the Goat coffee shop on Madison next to the tracks has the best connectivity signal. Last time I was there it looked like a dive but I guess they're hot, for some reason. Having no experience with WiFi, I'll go anywhere you like to meet and confer. Please advise.

Whats wrong with this page?

I wonder why part of my text is in the shaded box? I didn't do that. Obviously I've done something wrong, but it looked okay while I was typing. Oh well. --Weirdwilbur 19:50, 22 December 2007 (EST)

It is the Wiki formatting convention that paragraphs prefixed with spaces are put in a monospace font. You should instead separate paragraphs with a blank line. Check Help:Editing for more Wiki formatting tips. --IanOsgood 21:07, 22 December 2007 (EST)
