I just downloaded and installed WebWorks SDK, Ripple etc... I've followed the cookbooks/docs and been able to load samples into Ripple and also deploy them to emulator and to my Playbook.
I am having some problems that seem to be so basic but are really getting in the way of doing anything.
1. Ripple sometimes doesn't like loading from localhost:9900. Sometimes it works sometimes it fails. I cannot figure out how to reliably load my app. Sometimes I just get a white screen when I use localhost:9900. If I use http://blackberry.github.com/WebWorks-Samples/kitc
2. Touch events. Am I just thick? Seems to be lots of posts indicating touch events work great in Ripple. HOW!?? How do I swipe the screen? Using the mouse doesn't work. And using my finger just leaves a greaseprint on my LCD . For example: On the kitchen sink app using the mouse just selects the text on the screen. I cannot scroll down to the bottom of the screen. And on a page with a menu I cannot swipe down from the bezel to make the menu appear.
Please help me love developing for playbook (Instead of pulling my hair in frustration).

1. This could be a bug, I'm really not sure. Would you be so kind as to report this in Github for the Ripple-Framework repo? https://github.com/blackberry/Ripple-Framework/iss

HA! That would have been funny to see.
