Last week I bought myself a Roomba - great, but I want so much more.

iRobot have kindly provided a programmer interface so you can micromanage
the unit from its serial port (eg, via a microcontroller, IPAQ, etc) with
more recent firmwares:

Unfortunately, it seems that the Australian importer has ended up with old
stock that predate the Roomba Open Interface, which means purchasing OSMO
//Hacker firmware update unit (no biggie, about USD$30 + shipping):

Does anybody on the list have one of the firmware updated on hand? If not,
does anyone want chip in for a shared unit?
