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.

well, I had been hoping that people would have expressed support by posting responses, but nearly two months on you're the first to indicate interest, so I don't think there's enough interest.

It took me two months, but I did eventually respond. Perhaps others might as well? Just a shot in the dark.

reading back, Guylhem said he would be happy if people donated to the OE/OZ project; I would guess that a donation in his name would be a positive thing.

there are many worthy causes for opensource software and related institutions, sourceforge, EFF, Debian, OE, this forum itself... if everyone donated merely the money not spend on a license of MS windows home (let alone pro/ultimate), it would make a big difference.

Then just think of all the money spent on software after making that first step into the MS world. (I don't even want to bring in the time and energy spent on fighting the piracy wars... either supporting or opposing)

The trouble is that this becomes some kind of quasi- communism vs capitalism debate that never really seems to reach a universal conclusion. I try hard not to be anti-closed source, despite all of the distaste that it induces in me. When I fail to do so, I try to keep it a personal decision not to be imposed on others.

I'm not so sure that the world would be better off if everything was "free" in the debian sense of the word, but I certainly feel more comfortable using things that I don't understand when the creators have given them away with (seemingly) noble intentions.

Looking again at the title of this thread fills me with a sort of desperation. We all probably realize that these forums have been up and down lately. I've been coming to depend on these webpages as one of my few and most reliable guides to the zaurus world. Yet until recently, I haven't even begun to consider donating towards the maintainance of this site.

Furthermore, production of the zaurus hardware appears to have ended at the very source. This is at least a little sad to me in many ways, not the least of which is my strange obsession over this little material device.

I digress.

I just liked your idea of trying to raise funds towards some kind of gift towards guylhelm's recovery and continued work on handheld platforms. I would be willing to donate towards that cause, and I'd like to believe that others would as well.
