Hacked a very dirty 'mirrored' VNC Server out of LibVNCServer and the new X Damage extension. You can grab it here - its basically a quick reworking of the x11vnc.c included with LibVNCServer tarball ( in contrib/ ). The plan is to use it on the Ipaq as a demo tool for my fosdem talk. It works ok but not as good as Id hoped.

A Side effect of this was remembering vnc2swf - a tool for converting vnc streams into flash movies.So I made a quick little flash demo of matchbox running on my ipaq with composite ext, new minimo ( which is pretty amazing ) etc. You can view it here http://handhelds.org/~mallum/test.swf . Hmm, I wish I could run flash on my laptop ( powerpc ).

Hallski arrives in a few hours for some time here in the UK before we head off to brussles. Hope he can stand the mini zoo we have here at home.

Its good to see people are figuring out how to plugin/rework XInput for kdrive. I need to get in on the act and make sure tslib fits in somehow.

Seems the new matchbox release has gone down well. A few minor issues have cropped up but mostly now fixed in CVS. Will probably make new minor releases after fosdem and house move.

Arg, looks like after house move I'll be at best on dial up for a couple of weeks and there seems to be an unspected lead time on getting a new DSL line set up. This is going to hurt.

Packing for move is mostly done now. Just got to finish writing presentation...
