What have I done for the community so far

hm. Not much. Been active on irc/identi.ca(pietercolpaert)/mailinglist/wiki for a while.

Mobile Vikings value checker

A quick python script which needs some dependencies (the easiest way to do this is to copy al url* lib files from your desktop's python dir to your moko's python dir. check this: http://pastebin.com/f3520b61a I did not know python when I started to code and I'm aware this code is very very very messy. I will clean it up sooner or later.

It has a gtk interface. The python script can be ran in 2 ways: with usr/pwd on cmdline:

./mobilevikings user pwd

or without any arguments and then it will wait for you to enter your information in the GTK form

./mobilevikings

(be sure you have executable rights on the file):

chmod +x mobilevikings.py

If anyone feels like using it and changing stuff or has a better solution at the moment, I'd be interested, so please contact me. If someone feels like using the script and it does not work or would like a feature and you do not know how to do it, feel free to mail me.

my openmoko ideas

Bash - phone

An openmoko distribution which uses FSO. The interface is just a shell with on top of it a transparent keyboard (something like the fatfingershell). You can dail like this:

       pieterc@myphone$ dail +3248...... <RET>

or a contact:

       pieterc@myphone$ dail hom<tab> <RET> # = pieterc phone home

dail should be a python/bash/... script using the FSO api. other easy to use commands I can think of:

  • addcontact contact #number# -group "friends"
  • whereami (returns gsm locations and searches for cityname close to

that)

  • sendtext "come home for dinner" son1 # sends sms to son1 (again with

autocompletion)

  • wakemeup 7:30
  • tail /var/mail #to read last text-messages

bash-commands or commands you're used to: ls,cd,grep,awk,tail, ps, date, ...

and some ported apps:

  • nethack (yes, the game)
  • links/lynx,
  • emacs (with erc)
  • fortune (I like fortune a lot.)
  • ...

I think it's extremely easy and fun to develop this idea. It would make a perfect unix-lover-phone. We could hack on gnu bash to accomplish the auto completion for contacts and other stuff.
