Very good. Puno (Peru) also needs the ability to install activities from
USB stick because most schools have no connectivity and no school

I think it could be hacked together quickly with the current updater. Do
we already have some "standard" for distributing activities on USB
sticks? If not, I propose a directory Activities containing the xo

PS: the engineer from Puno sitting next to me says: "it's urgent!" :)
