Can't remember the guy who brought along this nifty little ARM-based
Linux palmtop (a PhD student from ADFA, from memory), but I was the one
who attacked it with a screw-driver - very interesting on the inside
(someone took photos - are they available for public viewing?).

Anyway, this is a _very_ neat little hack to get a (root) command line
up! I am impressed!
