The phone had been working 100% for a good month or two on its replacement battery.

Site Update for 20th January 2011

All the pages from my old site have been migrated to http://gadgeteer.co.za except for the Quality of Service pages which must still be done.  I have changed the layout to the Desk Mess Mirrored Theme which I'll stick with for now as it is lively and on topic and the drop down menus work easily - all I want to do is to change the iPhone graphic to an Android graphic.

I have also activated mobile browsing and any Blackberry, iPhone and Android phone will be detected and given the option to switch to the mobile browser version.
