Hello

Just a quick email to let you know I had a car accident in october, and I'm in the hospital until dec/jan with many broken bones. I've had a real net access since last week, and I first tried to sort of everything before passing the information.

As a consequence, development of the ROM has been fully halted. It also damaged the Acer N30 project I was working on.

Sorry about that. I will try to come back on the handheld linux world as soon as possible.

Sorry to hear of your misfortune. I have enjoyed your reviews, hacks, (even though they were on devices I don't own) and liked your 6000 rom too. I also would like to wish you a speedy recovery.

Get well soon Guylhem! While we usually don't agree on anything, your contributions to the mobile Linux are badly missed!

All the best!

As Guylhems partner for distributing the Acer n30 Familiar/GPE-Linux distribution "Letux", I myself was shocked about his accident. But I was also very happy to hear recently from him that it is beginning to be better for him and that he has again network access to "be connected".

I just want to note that I will continue the Letux n30 project as good as I can. For your convenience, here is a description: http://www.letux.org/releases/Letux%20n30.html and note that you can purchase SD cards through my shop on which we have preinstalled Letux.

Hello Guylhem,

Also from me the best wishes for recovery!
Although I do not know your ROM or even you too well, I am sad to hear that you will stop development. But most importantly get better soon!

Such an accident makes one think about priorities, right? And although software development is nice and helps many people, it is probably not prio no 1 in most people's life.

Hello

Thanks to you all for your kind words.

Effectively, I'm feeling better. I can now fully work with both hands, with minor pain on the right shoulder. I'm still on a wheelchair, but that's just fine for using a laptop :-)

Some of my linux hardware was damaged in the accident (note to self - in the future, you do not always carry all your handhelds with yourself), but I guess that comes second to the human "wetware" :-). As daniel3000 said, it really helps reprioritize things in your life [yet I miss hacking!]

Many thanks to dhns for continuing to support the N30. It's a really nice machine, with a great screen and fully supported by Linux 2.6 (except the sound part) + with dual boot capabilites for WinCe (either one can be installed in flash from USB, and linux can be booted from WinCe).

BTW I have found than while I was out, there were many exiting news. The OpenMoko / FIC Neo1973 looks very attractive - with or without wifi. I'll try to contribute whatever I can to such as exciting project.

Guylhem

PS: here's a picture of the car after the accident. It was a Ford (trust me). I was sitting in the passenger seat, right where the collision stuck. I will try to upload a bigger picture of the destroyed car (looks awesome !).

what (rhetorical question), exactly, did you do to get that result? attempt a kamikaze attack on a tractor-trailer?? you are lucky to be as well as you say, judging from the look of the car.

just seen the picture... looks like a routine type of bump on the Boulevard Peripherque and barely scratched! Seriously for a moment, seeing that wreck I think you're blessed to have survived and I pray for a speedy recovery.

glad to hear from you and keep us informed as to your progress. don't worry about your PDAs, the main thing is you're still with us.

wow !!

it looks rescue team had a lot of work to take you out of that bunch of hardware (I tend to prefer software for these occasions), luckily in one piece !

Anyway, I hope you recover soon, as well as your externe.net forums, which have been 'temporary disabled' for a while !!

best regards.
