Gizmo Project (on the 770)

Gizmo Project started advertising free phone calls and just released a client for the 770 - so I played with it. First of all the 770 client is totally unstable, it basically works but crashes a lot! The GUI (especially the contact details on the right side of the screen) is hard to use. BUT calling works like a charm! I called several land line and mobile numbers without any problems, and according to the other side it was nice and clear.

Btw. the advertised free calling only works for other Gizmo users who need to enter their land line/mobile number into their Gizmo accounts. I guess its kind of fair - free calls for more customers/users.

MUlliNER.ORG Maemo Repository is heavily used

I just checked my site stats and saw about 6000 hits for my maemo repository during the last 20 days, this is awesome! Especially nice is that my IpHome homepage plugin seems to have a lot of users.

Btw. I have a new utility in the queue. Hopefully I have enough spare time during my job search in order to finish it before I start working.

My Maemo2.0 Repository

I now run my own Maemo2.0 repository. I know it is point less that everybody sets up their own repository, but I just wanted to play with it (I'm a long time Debian user and I was just curious about how this repository thing actually works). See the repository settings below:

    web address: http://www.mulliner.org/nokia770/repository/
    distribution: maemo2

Xkbd-btHID for Maemo2.0

so I just uploaded xkbd-bthid for Maemo2.0. You have to follow the install instructions otherwise it doesn't work!

I also installed the final version of the IT2006 software today. The first thing I noticed is that it is much faster or snappier then before, really nice.
