Laptop Computer!

Hurray for dear friends!

One of my best friends actually had an old laptop she was no longer using. She does not care how we have to change the settings to make it work or even if it ends up stolen while we are in Africa. So we now have a laptop to use.

Another friend has gone through the machine, taken off unnecessary settings and increasing its capacity so we can use it to show videos during the training.

Now the hard part will be timing it so the batteries are always charged. We have been told access to electricity is sporadic, and to only expect it every few days or so. The computer came with two batteries, one which appears to be unusable. We still need to find out what type of power converter is needed to use electricity in Congo. So, that will be the next task.
