Re: The oblivious neighbors & a people-friendly GPS

So I take it that in the US you don't have a simplified geo-referencing system like the UK Ordnance Survey's National Grid coordinates? UK aware mapping software generally understands this. e.g....

Re: Encrypted partition

Re: Encrypted partition

Done.

I'll follow how you get on with this as the two problems clearly have some shared characteristics. I did initially build and install a custom kernel, but as I have both N800 and N810 I...

Re: Encrypted partition

It is now possible to build TrueCrypt and use it with a standard OS2008 kernel. It requires the loading of the kernel module dm-mod.ko - which I've included in the deb. So if anyone would like to...

Re: SD card woes

Re: Having fun with the N800's camera

It would be nice to have a mirror view option. Or even make it the default when the camera is facing the user.

If my memory is right then Mike did get his 770 free. So perhaps in future many more folks will get them free too. (It could happen, consider OLPC)
