The Trinidad and Tobago Computer Society (TTCS) will be having a tech meeting on Saturday 26th January 2008 from 1pm to 5pm at Hand Arnold (Trinidad) Limited, El Socorro Road Extension, El Socorro, San Juan (see map at http://ttcsweb.org/handarnold-map)
Until December 31st, 2007, one can get the OLPC under the Give One Get One program . However, when I tried to order one online, I encountered the same problem as CFR : you’re required to create a Paypal account and the online web form is meant for US and Canada donors.
“If I live outside of the US or Canada, may I participate in Give One Get One? Yes, but only if you provide a shipping address within the US or Canada. To participate, please call 1-949-608-2865. International calling charges will apply.”
So, I called today (December 31st, 2007), gave my credit card and my P.O Box address in Florida and placed an order. It will be useful to have two OLPCs at TTCS meetings to demonstrate the mesh capability of the OLPC laptops. The official OLPC wiki also has lots of information ,both news and technical details about the OLPC.
