It was by inserting time delays between functional blocks that I  
realized that my kids' programming wasn't at fault and that it was the  
Lego system that was at fault.  I'd insert the time delay blocks,  
download the program and not see any time delays.

it's very, very frustrating.  The Lego rep I spoke to admitted that  
their system does not work well with Macs.  How can they sell  
something as being cross platform when it truly isn't?
