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, the 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 Office 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, to test them out. Then I can move onto getting some PIM apps on it.

And for another personal note, I'm off to get some chips from the local chip shop :)
