Got also a WikiReader now

Since 'Pulster' recently posted, that he has Germanized WikiReaders, I
could not resist and ordered one.
Now I've got it and started playing around (first removed the cap to see
the connector to the debug serial interface - disappointed, I need a
special adapter to it).
But what really surprised me was the fact, that the delivered SD card not
only held a german Wikipedia, but also a english and a dutch one!
and I can switch between then during runtime and even the history
function tracks the different country-specific entries correctly.
This function makes it valuable for me, since there are a lot of
country-specific pages which are not translated to other languages (simply
because it sometimes makes no sense).
Of course I was looking around to see some hacks or mods, but I was too
lazy to set up my own build-chain. The Fortran interface is nice for some
Just for the joy of "yes, we can" I'd be intersted in some different ways
of abusing that device, and I'm missing a email group like this one for
the OM handy.
Any pointers to active hackers for the WikiReader?
