I suggest you post this to the community list - much more activity
there. In particular, ask to know who has a debug board in your vicinity.
I'm sure there are some in London and Oxford. Not sure what is the most
convenient for you. Joseph Reeves is a very pleasant 10 minute walk
along the Thames from the Oxford train station. (YMMV)
(What we need is a map showing the locations of all Openmoko owners. For
the paranoid, it can be a linkedin- or twitter-like invitation where you
share your info with someone and invite them to share back with you. Can
someone whip this up using Fireeagle?)
