Hey guys,

Still trying to resolve some Ubuntu bug issues and sounds in Scratch. Unfortunately, due to the flooding here in Tennessee our internet capabilites here have been sporatic. Still trying to find a friend or co-worker with internet access and the ability to burn a LiveCD of Ubuntu 9.1 or higher!

Also, at a meeting yesterday, I was informed that I will be teaching Teen Tech Camp again. It seems our outside instructor has fallen through. :) So, now I am scrambling to sort of innovate the curriculum that we taught last year. Any suggestions? I was thinking that last year's instruction was a bit narrow in it's focus, resulting in projects looking a bit similiar. Hmmm.

With all of this planning and upgrading/updating going on, I should not forget to mention something big that Scratch has given us here in Memphis. For what I believe is the first time, we have five campers from last year who are returning this year to assist with the camp as volunteers. Not only that, but they want to be volunteers from 9am-3pm for the duration of the week! This is still astounding me for some reason. I really would like to give them the time and support to teach/present a portion of the camp. Any suggestions on how to make this easier for our teens? How to give the right amount of support without taking over the presentation?

I feel like dancing! I just successfully burned two copies of Ubuntu 10.04 using the Disk Utility on my Mac. I shouldn't celebrate too soon, cause I still have to try them out at work.

Awesome!!! You'll do a great job and it's awesome that the kids are returning. What a great outcome. Let's make sure we put this somewhere on the agenda for our June meetings. I bet Janet and Cynthia, among others can help with the teen volunteer piece, and everyone can with the content.
