Trying desperately to get technical docs on a chip so I can fix the Linux support. The vendor's web page requires authentication to get to them. I have requested (via the web page) access several times with no response whatsoerver. I tried their sales e-mail address, its an unknown address and is undeliverable. I tried their published phone numbers. As near as I can tell all paths through the automated response unit end up ringing a phone 4 times and then dumping me into a voice mailbox.

I find this one of the most irritating aspects of programming. How can people use your product if you don't tell them how? Publish the interface!

Maybe someone in Santa Clara would nail my request on their door?

On a less stressful note I finally got a 1024x768 color display on one of the Netwinders. 9" B&W gnome is a bit rough. This is much nicer.
