Some other things..

  1. HD900 - this is a nice Linux box, that doubles as HDTV receiver. It has a SH4 processor - which brings up the question how to compile software for this box. You may check here for some pointers;
  2. Ideal - yet another method to pay for stuff you buy on the Internet. As this is a typical Dutch phenomenon, the page about it has been written in Dutch. It can be found here;
