Re: My nokia n900 fell to the toilet

If your device drops in water, remove battery, sim and memory card.
Towel dry gently, leave in rice or silica gel for a good few days.

Only sure way to know if it's dry is opening it up.

Re: [Announce] modRana: a flexible GPS navigation system

Well for me, N900 is the middle of the sea, Desktop is Brno the latter is possibly because there is no way to provide GPS data.

Never thought about a POI TBH, but yes I suppose a special Home POI...

Re: [Announce] Orecchiette - an all-purpose audio recording app

Worldwide shipping?

Alternatively maybe sourcing local OEM batteries is the way to go.

Have a look for some polarcell batteries, they seem to be good quality and in stable supply at the moment.

Re: [Announce] modRana: a flexible GPS navigation system

One useful thing I would like to see in modRana is to "set home" in the settings.
Some way to have the map load at a preset location if there is no GPS fix.

I seem to find that modRana loads in...

Re: x terminal w: GPG error: http://maemo-repos.com ./ release: following signatures were invalid: key expired 1349249546

Maybe it's time to mention that the application manager is the recommended way to update.

Also dist-upgrade is completely broken in Maemo and will cause dependency mess.
Time to reflash.

Re: 2G vs 3G and battery life

From experience I have no exact figures.
I find 2G only gives slightly better battery life than 3G only, this is over a long period of time locked in standby, on an N900 that uses no data.

Maemo was never "designed" to install packages from a terminal.

Yep, the best thing to do is reflash and start again, or suffer dependency chaos til the end of time.

Re: Idea: N900 security update (openssl, browser etc)

Thank you for your post.

I actually feel this is the sort of thing CSSU-Stable is for.
Stable - the "LTS" of Maemo.
I don't see the reason for the additional repository.
