Time Event
alcatel 303 repair
Pavel Moravek gave me old alcatel phone ("it no longer charges, so it is useless, I'll throw it away"). I thought its charger will be compatible with my alcatel 501... Electrically it is, unfortunately it just plain does not fit (unless you use a little force).

I started playing with that phone, and found that I can actually charge its NiMH battery using two needles and 4.5V power supply. Good. Then I searched a web a bit and that told me that interface at the bottom is very prone to failures... which fit symptoms perfectly. So I opened it (using knife, ouch; and it was actually *very* easy to disassemble), and found that trace from 12V simply rotten away... I tried my luck with soldering iron and after few tries phone charges. It is good to know that soldering iron is still usefull with modern electronics.
pm_message_t has chance
Apparnetly akpm understands what a pain s/u32/pm_message_t/ over whole tree is, and merges patches quickly. We may still get u32 vs. pm_message_t confusion solved for 2.6.12, good.
