It also says on the next line:

    * *To reset only the ssh keys*, in order to keep the Journal and
      installed .xo Activities, use |rm ~/.sugar/default/owner.key*| in
      the Sugar Terminal, and then shutdown sugar |su shutdown -h now|.
      This leaves the Journal entries and removes only the previous
      Learner's identity key files.*

I have changed the colored bar instructions on all web pages and added a 
Summary section from the previous e-mail to the tutorial drag-drop.

I appreciate all feedback so that the wiki works better. Thanks
