Follow-up Comment #2, task #8679 (project administration):

Hi Yavor,

The 2008 Telethon event occured this saturday Dec 6th, so first of all I'm
very glad to say that hopefully my project was far beyond the prototype state
it was at the time I submitted the registration request here, and actually
work quite well for the 6 hours of the events ! (not even a bug, but several
feature and improvement requests of course ;)) [screenshot attached]

To answer your question, the program is composed of 2 software parts:
- a arduino C like program that fetch info from the capters and send them to
the PC thru the serial link.
Compiling this part is done using the arduino SDK which is GPL
( Testing is the matter of reading
what's going on the serial link, and verifying the each capter's ticks shows
up in time ;) (correct speed, etc).
- a ruby/Gtk interface that controls and display the information in a nice
GUI. Testing the interface without the arduino hardware is achieve by
replacing the tty device by a fifo and using another ruby script that
simulates the ticks of capters.

Everything is running on my workstation which is a Debian Lenny.

Hope I respond to your question ?

I've got 1 question on my side... Since it's been a long time since I filled
the registration request, my project now has actually got a new name:
"velothon" (which is a lot better to me). Hence, Is it possible to change the
project name in my application ?

Best Regards,

(file #17006)
