I'm programming on Freerunner. Waiting for testing, in train, in
school, even in bed. Everywhere I don't have access to my PC. The most
of SHR Settings, SHR Installer and opimd code was created on FR, using
just nano, vala-terminal, Illume keyboard and my fingernails ;)

Once I was using FR as calculator on math's exam. During test I wrote
small python app to count everything I needed ;)
