I took some times yesterday do play around with it. A problem I had yesterday and the day I first got the kit was I could not start the WeDo software without something in each USB port. Kevin experienced the same problem. He said he couldn't get the software working until that day when we met. The strange thing is right now I tried it out and the software worked fine. Usually the software starts, there's a beep and it goes to the main menu.
My brother has his own XO and will be keeping his own blog. We're both running the same OS, same firmware, both freshly installed and yet we seem to have different problems. One thing I want to know is if you don't want anyone else seeing this stuff so we should make everything private or if you don't care.
