  • With the end of the semester approaching, I have been very busy.
  • I went out to Harding Elementary and taught kids Storytelling Alice again. Will use the experience for more modifications to the curriculum.
  • Still testing the stability issues of Storytelling Alice 2.2 on Linux within a virtual machine.

  • I put out the instructions on how to setup a virtual machine testing environment using VirtualBox and Ubuntu.
  • Found some possible stability issues with running the Storytelling Alice 2.2 port inside a VM.
  • I will look into the reason Storytelling Alice 2.2 crashes in the VM this coming week.

  • Learned more php and mysql to create a feedback page on the myvice website.
  • Took the first lesson to Beeks and Harding Elementary school today. Got a lot of good feedback which we will use to update the curriculum.
  • Plan to show lesson one again tomorrow at KTU.
  • I will also put out instructions on how to setup a good testing environment to work more on the stability of the Storytelling Alice 2.2 port to Linux.

  • I continued working on the function to grab a picture from rendered data, but I am making little headway.
  • Since we don't use the function yet, I will be switching my focus to stability and getting more testing done.
  • The biggest issue of stability so far is a problem with XML parsing in Linux, so I will be attempting to fix that problem, which can crash the program in some of the tutorials.
  • Also this week, I will be looking into setting up a database for feedback from Kid's Tech University, which will be the coming Saturday.
