Meetings with Supporters in Ohio

I will be back in Ohio the second week of June to visit family, and I've been able to schedule meetings with several supporters of our project in Ohio while I'm there. 
On Wednesday, June 8th, I'm meeting Scott Rosenberg of Wittenberg University whose students will be carrying laptops to Maseru for us the following week.  And, on June 13th, I'll be meeting with William Thomas of BLOOM Africa, one of our largest funders.
I've tried to make contact with the OLPCinci repair center for a visit, but I haven't gotten a response yet.  It's hard to tell from the OLPC Wiki website, but I think the repair center may have moved out of the Cincinnati area.  I hope not.  It would be a real treat to visit.

Received Donated Spare Parts & Laptop from OLPC

I received a package today from Paul Fox of OLPC with a donated XO-1 laptop, four spare batteries, a serial adapter, and some spare parts.  Thank you, Paul!
Now it's time to get my tools out and get to work repairing laptops.
