A bit of Nokia N900 nostalgia.

I recently purchased my first Raspberry Pi Model B+ board, with the hope I could re-tweak my interest in Python programming and Linux from yesteryear and it got me thinking about my old Nokia N900, which I had spent so many hours, days, weeks tinkering on, and which brought about this website.

Solution for failed Nokia N900 catalogues.

If you are trying to get into the repository catalogs but can’t, it is because there is a known problem. I only found out today much to my frustration.

In case you have not visited them yet, check out the thread titled [FOR DUMMIES] Add temporary mirrors of repo.maemo.org to N900 by thedead1440. It explains how to get around the problem and offers a whole bunch of mirror sites to the various repository catalogues.

Neverputt 3D mini-golf on my Nokia N900.

So I have been taking a break from my SGS2 and recently stumbled upon a wonderful 3D game of mini-golf. It is called Neverputt. It was developed by Alberto Mardegan (Mardy). It supports 1 to to 4 players at a time. The idea is simple, get your ball in the hole. It is finger friendly and makes use of the touch screen. The game has many challenges and I am sure if you have played mini golf you will know what I mean. I found a video demo of the game on Mardy’s website.

Squeeze my Nokia N900 and send a vibration to a friend.

It seems people are still coming up with new concepts for the Nokia N900. Just this week the Helsinki Institute of Information Technology and Nokia Research showed off their “ForcePhone” idea. Rather than me explain it all, head over to the Technology Review and read the post titled “Squeeze Your Phone, and Send a Loved One a Hug” by Nidhi Subbaraman. It is a good read.
