I've managed to jailbreak my iPhone 3G and install an NES emulator. It started out running reaaaaaaaaaaaaaally slowly, but after shutting down just about everything I could think of, it seems to be running at a reasonable frame rate. I'm going to call it a success.
Nothing new out in the gardens. The blackberry plant is at the back of the property and quite a walk away, so I haven't checked it lately. I'll check it later today. There's a front moving through so the temp dropped like a rock and I'm expecting a little rain today.
