Today we broke ground on “the real thing”. All of the prototype code has been put away (still in the code repository, of course) and we are starting from scratch. The prototype has served us well, helping us to answer many questions.

As a last hurrah for the app, Andy Palmowski over in Calgary reports that he has managed to get it running in a simulated OLPC. Andy found that the prototype plus mono accounted for a mere 16 megs of RAM.

After a few days of preliminary architecture design, Eric and I are coding the new framework. We might not have much to say now for a couple weeks, when we hope to reemerge with another application.
