The latest from Lascahobas

Currently at Lascahobas. I spent the first two days in Haiti visiting Silar's orphanage and getting our solar power equipment from different places in Port-au-Prince. I was mostly along for the ride - one of our teachers, Jeanide, led the way. We also visited a tablet manufacturer/assembler and talked to their head engineer, who talked me into buying a solar panel with integrated mobile backup battery. Yesterday Sora came into Port-au-Prince, then we traveled out into the countryside to visit the school in Lascahobas. Sora and the teachers discussed the project in Creole until after dark. I debugged some issues with internet, and went on the roof to check on the solar panels. I was then up past midnight writing some writing helpers into the iLoominate eBook project. Long day! Today is the first actual workshop day - our software is running on the server, teachers are meeting, Sora has ordered lunch for everyone. I'll be taking a look at the solar power system, with George and Tim joining by Skype
