Recieved this note from John (Adultswim )

This guy has found out a way to communicate with the
gumstix to the gps reciever and cell phone:
http://www.srcf.ucam.org/~jac208/pegasus/pegasus1.html

Also he sent this


Also - this individual is working on making a cell
phone: http://www.seattlewireless.net/~casey/index.cgi/2005/05

Which led to an email to Casey and this response ( and his permission to post this response).

Wow. We got Boing Boinged! / Where have i been?

Hi all,

Many thanks to Cory Doctorow and Ben.

I've haven’t posted for a while and thought I had better give some progress.

Firstly thanks for all the email of support and enthusiasm for the project. This means more drive from me. Cheers.

Also to explain absence. My father sadly passed away a few weeks ago and now I am now wading through the disruption to my day job that it has caused. So long 16 hour days and also trying to find time to be a good dad to my 10 month old daughter. So bear with me. Many thanks to those who sent kind words. Soldering, hacking and being digitally delinquent are last on the list sadly. Need to feed and keep that baby happy, lest she turn out like me. :-) Click below there is more.....

Parts arrived but no posting for a week or so

I am in the UK currently attending to a family member illness. I will post more on my return to San Diego. Surj.
