Great, we're looking forward participating.

PS The registration on the olpc news forum returns:

Actually I wanted to go there to get some help for following problem:
When I go to other posts, I can't leave a reply to some posters that left questions, nor can I leave a reply. Is that normal?

Strange, was there on time. Couldn't find any way to hook-up with the google hangout. Didn't get any feedback nor on the olpc irc channel, nor on the g+ unleashkids ... only when I took a look again at the unleashkids youtube channel I noticed the meeting was going on. But people didn't see my posting apparently nor on the g+, nor on the twitter, nor on the youtube.
