Well what a day!

For all of you non UK people out there, it was the final of Big brother today. I wanted Craig the scouser to win, and he did, so it was cool. I know people think it is the ultimate in voyeurism and should never be shown, but hey, I love it :)

Anyway, to proceed with me devel diary...

After having major problems with my PC at work messing up on transfering files to the Psion with sz/rz and messing up my CF filesystem over and over again I bought it home with me and my home pc worked fine. Microwindows would just not work on it, the screen would go blank and the psion seemed to freeze. So after a swift re-compilation of the kernel it seemed to resolve itself and MicroWindows loaded up, but the usual screen garbage came up. So after messing with the bitwise ops in the framebuffer driver for Microwindows I managed to actually get the thing to load up with no screen disruption. All I have to do now is forward port the touch screen driver to the current version of MicroWindows I can start on coding apps, and also getting gtk/fb on it too.
