I had one working a while ago at work, but I don't have access to the
config files and whatnot until next week. I don't think I ever
deconfigured it.

If I recall correctly, I had a lot of issues with working out what I
wanted it to advertise, and I think bluez used to kill one of its
advertising types pretty quickly, and I had to keep retriggering it
because my phone wouldn't see the other advertisement type.

That was even hazier than I expected it to be...

Of course Pacman didn't influence us as kids. If it did,
we'd be running around in darkened rooms, popping pills and
listening to repetitive music.
