Hello Femslade, and Welcome to the OLPC wiki!

I hope you enjoy browsing and want to stay. As a first step, you may wish to read our introduction.

Hi Femslade, Add a vague netry to XO roadshows, and send around an email pointing to it and asking if anyone's going to be in town in order to help organize a {tea, &c}. --Sj talk 15:13, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

Ooh, Disassembly draft looks way better now. I'm going to port the pages over first thing when I go to the office (leaving now). See you soon, perhaps? Mchua 12:25, 1 June 2008 (EDT)

Please use preview

Francesca, if you are going to be making a lot of edits to the wiki (and I certainly hope you will be), it would be a good idea to get into the habit of using the Show Preview feature to avoid flooding the Special:Recentchanges history. Some of us who actively watch out for wiki vandalism find the Recent Changes page an important tool to review wiki activity and many sequential edits by one user on one page makes it less useful. Wikipedians apparently feel strongly enough about this that they have created a user notification template just to encourage folks to try to group sequential edits of the same page into a single edit history line and while this isn't Wikipedia, some of the cultural norms from over there apply to pretty much any wiki. Thanks, and I'll see you around the wiki. Cjl 19:29, 2 June 2008 (EDT)

Unneeded alt text for (some) semantic annotation text

Hello there, I notice in Property:Source code you did

 This is a property of type [[Has type::URL|URL]].

but you need only write

 This is a property of type [[Has type::URL]].

The Semantic MediaWiki extension parses the property annotation before the :: (Has type in this case) but hides it and the colons from display. Cheers. -- Skierpage 19:53, 25 July 2008 (UTC) (I assiste SMW extension development, check out Special:Version ;-) )

projectdb form

Project name 
Project shortname (for the wiki)	
What other members are involved?	
Percent already completed:	
Description of your plans for the laptop(s). Concrete proposals with defined outcomes are much more 
 likely to result in an laptop than "it would be cool to play with these and demo them". Try to 
 describe as detailled as possible	

Number of Laptops that you need	
Number of months that you expect the project to take	
Description of your experience, both with hardware and software. 	
Any extra info or notes you want to share with us	

[] I agree to pass on the laptop to a local OLPC group or other interested developers in case I do 
   not have need for the laptop anymore or in case my project progress stalls


Hi Femslade, I'm a former OLPC-EU employee in Brussels, preparing a trip to visit my wife's family in Cambodia and to meet the Minister of Education of Cambodia. Saw you on ... do you have any special interest to Cambodia in particular? Can you team-up / coach me? Thx --SvenAERTS 06:37, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
