Giving up on Jackal

My 9th grade robotics class has really liked the syntax coloring Jackal provides for our cricket microcomputers. But after a lot of frustration I've abandoned Jackal in favor of Cricket Logo. CL is much more stable, especially transmitting data to the cricket. We now get very few errors, and this was driving my students crazy with Jackal. As a result we're really working on properly indenting programs as a way to make them more readable.
