I received my openmoko Neo FreeRunner on Friday. It’s a neat Linux phone that is much more open than usual. I’ve logged into it as root, and are installing some updates. I’ve had a quick poke around, and feel really at home, ssh’ed in to my phone, poking around in /proc and /sys, it’s Linux 2.6.24, and to configure the main phone application, you make dbus calls.
So, this week I’ll be learning about the Neo and possibly upgrading it to a newer release from the factory default.
Today, I also spent quite a lot of time working with my Arduino, building a circuit that controls a relay to drive a pump, based on 5 different water temperatures. The pump heats the floor, but only when the is more hot water in the tank than we want.
