Raster's Image and chatting on the moko!

Hi everyone,

I recently flashed an image created by Raster (from a recent version of
the ASU dev tree but with his modifications...most noticably the
keyboard is changed to a modified version of the illume keyboard...and
very works very well!)  I think Raster mentioned that it can accept any
dictionary file for the predictive part of the keyboard, and you can
easily switch dictionaries with the top left button.  (Not to mention
there is a full qwerty keyboard option included!  Terminal friendly

Anyway, I just wanted to comment that with it, and several other recent
programs, I was able to very easily connect to a wifi network (via
terminal), connect my bluetooth keyboard, and chat in the #openmoko IRC
room via pidgin....and it worked great!  I've also used this image for a
couple days as my main phone and it seems to be pretty stable and
usable.  It wakes up out of suspend on phone calls and with the usual
mods to the gsmhandset.state file, it sounds fine. 

To see pics and descriptions of what I used, see here:

(Remember, Raster gets all the credit!  I'm just trying to spread the
good word about the image!)
