Thanks Larry, Hie Neil and Everyone,

We welcome the involvement of Kingdom Academy in OpenICDL. Could the
Kingdom guys kindly read and inform
us about the extend to which they would like to be involved. I seem to
read that they would like to run our finished products?? Great we
welcome that.

The raxso tool looks great and convenient to the computer classroom.
Can we start to develop another ADDON zim version CD, that comes with
all dependencies, because a lot of good tools fail to make it into the
remote rural schools that DON'T have internet connectivity. Or how can
this make it onto the Edubuntu 8.10??
