The One Laptop Per Child programme has lived up to its name in the tiny South Pacific nation of Niue, where 100% of children now have one.

A south Pacific Island, Free WiFi , sounds like paradise to me :thumbsup:

It's wonderful, isn't it!

Only wish there was a program similar to it for each child within each country (including Canada) ... so many of our children have the advantage while there others live not just without a computer but below poverty level, too.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.
