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.

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.


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 !).
