    You mentioned waiting until the next NaSoAlMo to give the “album in a month” challenge a shot. There is actually one in February called the RPM Challenge if you can’t wait until next November :)

    Well, feedback on the feedback, we’re getting into a potentially dangerous cycle here.

    In the feedback about the N900, a cool feature was mentioned: hot-swapping the battery. This produced some confusion, for the OP and for the commentators. I guess all of y’all aren’t old enough to have owned a Palm Pilot. Those devices did not have any stable storage – everything was essentially in RAM. So, if you lost power, perhaps while installing fresh batteries (there was no alternative power input at all) you essentially went to a factory reset state. They solved this potential drawback to ownership by including capacitors large enough to give you about a minute to swap out those triple-A batteries. Voila! Hot-swappable batteries!

    Why you need this on an N900 I don’t know, but it is cool…

    Dan: “There’s no such thing as a good buffer overflow.”

    With respect to Dan, there is! The buffer overflow that allowed the original Xbox to run unsigned code such as Linux through a specially crafted gamesave file. This led to the development of the amazing XBMC.
