Make CyberJack drivers issue a key-press confirmation beep
This is a very useful feature, especially for blind people. Unfortunately
there is no unique way of issuing some beep sound on Linux-based systems, so
there needs to be some magic that determines whether running under X11 or not
and call the appropriate code for beeping.
Successful TomTom Visit
As indicated before, TomTom B.V. has invited Christian and me to visit them at
their offices. Apart from some consulting/training regarding Free Software
Licenses and the Free Software Community, they were particularly interested in
getting us involved with their Linux kernel related development.
I stressed the fact that it is very important to clean up all the drivers, make
them use standard interfaces and eventually get them merged to the mainline
kernel. As it seems, they agree and want to contract one or some of the
OpenTom developers to do so.
Leaving for Linux-Bangalore/2004
I'm at the moment packing my suitcase, and I'll be sitting in the plane about
24 hours from now. Do not expect any fast email replies or IRC presence of me
before December 9th.
