Okay, I have Foxfire and Thunderbird installed on Jessica. I may have done something wrong with setting up Thunderbird or forgotten some extra password, since, currently, I can read the email on the online account that mneme created for us, but I can't send email. When I try, Thunderbird asks for my password. I type it. It asks again. I type it. Repeat until I shrug and send via yahoo, fastmail, or my phone.
I need to add the "take me to my desktop" icon to the task bar. And I should reinstall a couple of programs I have on CD.
Meanwhile, mnemex says that the tablet has shipped, but he has not yet gotten tracking info.
