Well, I've finally got round to doing some stuff for Familiar (Linux distribution for ARM handhelds, partly based on Debian).
To get going yesterday I wrote a little GTK interface for changing the screen brightness/rotation (screenshot). I also arranged stuff so that I could upload the package to the Familiar unstable feed. For now it's at http://familiar.handhelds.org/familiar/feeds/unstable/packages/armv4l/ipaqscreen_0.0.1_arm.ipk - if you're running Familiar just need to ipkg install ipaqscreen and it should be fetched and unpacked for you.
Today between other stuff I started on a little program intended for taking voice notes. (I briefly went off on a silly path, trying to use a child process for recording when it really isn't necessary here....) Anyway, here's the current screenshot.
Tomorrow I should probably do some more real work, but I'll hopefully also have time to get this working. It makes things more difficult for testing that my desktop's sound driver doesn't do recording. :(
Still haven't had time to do a PhotoGroup update - for the last few weeks I've been working fairly solidly on assignments for my course, and I've still got two more long essays to do in the next little bit. Then I should be doing revision for the exams in April.... After that I'll be doing a project; hopefully I'll have time between working on that to get some of my own programming done.
