Spent the whole day working on the code for the Laptop. Some time on sketching the network-setup UI Myles and I were discussing as well. Biggest problem is that such a project will take months and we've only got about 3 months until we need to think about shipping. That said, I really wish I had this kind of interface for setting up my own machines.
I would like to find out what needs to be done to make a regular Linux laptop act as a Mesh Portal for the OLPC. It's going to need a dhcp server and some software to do the actual communication of the various discovery and routing frames as well as an iptables (or whatever) forward from the Mesh to the wired connection.
Last thing I tackled was the crash-on-start issue that's been keeping me from running Sugar on my emulated images and my regular laptop for the last week or so. I'm still missing all of the icons for the UI, but it does load now and can be used to launch activities and generally get development done. That's my first non-documentation commit of any size to the project, hopefully did it correctly.
