Thanks - that is to me an intriguing article, since I'm very happy writing stuff in java /  groovy although I know no C / C++. I guess though that a Vala program assumes it will run under X and so is not an answer if you use qtmoko.

Nevertheless, this has got me thinking more about thoughts I had already.

I recently went back to using qtmoko after an extended try of SHR, which has come on in leaps and bounds although I found the way (at the moment) it (mis)handles text messages hugely annoying in the end. My attitude was I want to reduce my annoyance level with this charming device to about zero and I have more or less done that.

However it took a good long while researching various aspects of Freerunner lore which I found only wirh some difficulty, scattered over several places. Am I right to think there's a good case for a resource "ok I have a freerunner, now what". Or maybe the part of the whole world that has a freerunner already knows what to do and is more interested in gta-04 now. 

I'd be happy to host something myself if there was no other place to collate this sort of information
