Hacking Chumby One

I came across some posts on a different discussion board about a nice Wireless internet radio clock called Chumby One. I have found out that it has linux inside and is easily hackable to be used as a robot brain. There are already sample bots out there, I have just started to look into it and thought it might be interesting for some of you. I have almost no knowledge of how linux stuff goes and I don't think I can do much with Chumby at the moment, so I will be interested if some of you guys manage to make it your robot's brain. Perhaps using Python? or Processing?

Arduino and ARM microcontroller

It's been a while since I wrote anything at LMR, so an update is due: I've been messing about with an Arduino Duemilanove that I was given for Christmas 2008. I've done all the usual things with LEDs, servos, LCDs and the like.  Also spent way too much time at the Arduino forums!
