Project Noddwr, which includes former work on the Tivis accessible touchscreen project has been shelved and the site taken down as of May 2007.
Project Noddwr was intended to be a repository of Open Source hardware and software components for independent living and also to encompass the scope of the Tivis project, originally designed for community/tourist information via touch-screens, and later to provide accessible kiosk solutions.
Examining the documentation that was online, I found it so out of date that I have simply removed it and created this page as a place-marker. Anyone seeking information on older content should contact me through the address at the end of this page or by my "real" e-mail address, should they know it. I still have a proposal available for the development of an accessible kiosk system; should anyone be looking to produce such a system and who may consider sponsoring this development, I would love to hear from them.
The spirit of Project Noddwr is not dead, just resting. I started the project early on in the stages of an ongoing illness, which has prevented me from pursuing the work that I had started. Of late, however, I have been working on the software component for my own use, to help manage time restricted by Chronic Fatigue and prop-up an impaired memory. Developments that would have found their way onto the Project Noddwr site will appear here, on Smiffy's Place.
2009-09-12: the noddwr.org domain was allowed to lapse at the end of last month and the tivis.net.au domain which also pointed to this page will expire on the 8th of next month. Whilst I will continue to offer related services to clients who might need them, as far as the Noddwr and Tivis projects are concerned:
"This parrot is no more. It has ceased to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker. This is a late parrot. It's a stiff. Bereft of life, it rests in peace. If you hadn't nailed it to the perch, it would be pushing up the daisies. It's rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. This is an ex-parrot."
(Substituting "project" for "parrot".)
