I could say the excitement is killing me, but I am too
tired for all of that stuff.
One of my workmates wanted me to make this diary more
personal, so here goes :)
Last night I stayed up till 3am working Microwindows,
gfx routines work now, and I also got the touch screen
working. I finally figured out the kernel code for the ts
driver, so I can also use the touch buttons on the Psion
screen when I get some GUI apps working.
I had to get up early this morning to goto the Psot
and send off my application for a photocard driving license
(I still hadn't applied for a full license after I passed
my test a year ago!). I need it soon as I have to use it
to rent a car when I go to the US for a residency at IBM to
write a RedBook for Linux on the Netfinity servers.
On to the Psion... So I have the gfx and touch screen
working, but I need to refine the code for the touch screen
driver as even after calibration it is still out a bit. I
just managed to get FLTK ported to Microwindows, a lot
easier than I thought, and it loaded up first time! Boy,
that is unusual when I am involved :) I can't believe how
good FLTK looks on the Psion, very clear.
So now I'm off to get as many fltk programs as I can,
test them out. Then I can move onto getting some PIM apps
And for another personal note, I'm off to get some
from the local chip shop :)
