Hello all, Codeman, and respected others:
I have been looking at the newer Sony units and if you havn't noticed already, but they have seagate ide drives already in them. How hard could this hack be? I don't mean to complain, but I am frustrated by the lack of new devices being hacked. Now let me explaine me, I am 20 yrs old, broke 95% of the time and am not really a great hacker but have had my times, I am a programmer, certified PC tech, NT, windows 95/98/2000 certified administrators. I have no soldering (or spelling skills) whatsoever. I recently bought a book pc and i'll tell ya what. For $281.00 for a 500mhz celeron,64meg ram, nic, sound,modem, tv out, and the capacity to be a kick ass DVD player. I can't justify even $100 for an i-opener. Now I am a little sour for reasons being that I missed my chance to get one, but as I mentioned before there are too few new units, no ones fault though. Guy's instead of Hd's use Demo linux, it works great!!! I LOVE Linux and free BSD, and a very personal favorite is BeOS. I know a lot and would be honored to serve in whatever new up and comming projects are available. I can write scripts like a Mo-Fo! Yes, I am a "script kiddie", but Name one thing that perl can't do!
The new sony units are arround $299.99(a little steap for a fun hack!), and looks like it has a lot of potential, and another thing, has anyone ever considdered trying to put palm OS or CE on a Mailstation? basicaly the same processor/system?
I got my book pc at http://www.ACNT.com for $159.99, Celeron 500mhz for $92.00, and a heatsink for $3.00
Thanks for all of you listening. Please reply to me with thoughts or comments, I do not mean to come off as ungreatfull, Sorry if I do, I think this is a wonderfull thing and I don't want it to die!
