Good morning Internet!

An interesting discussion popped up on Flickr under the picture of the N800, which arrived yesterday. I'd like to get to the bottom of the problem and get it working. What I really want to know is if there's an Apache running on the device. If so, can the camera drop pictures into the htdocs folder? Can I record a podcast? Will it drop the MP3 file into the htdocs folder? We may just have to wait for Bug Labs to get the user programmable hand-held, but after a night of sleep, last night's failure is fading out and a teeny bit of enthusiasm is returning. But first I have to go to breakfast and do a couple of meetings.
Postscript: Apache for the N800.
Postscript: The N800 works at a local Internet cafe. I was able to browse the web and make a Skype call.
Finally: This thread had the answer... I have it running with no security, but it works, with the settings tweaked as indicated in the thread. I will have to get it working with security, but for now, I am able to connect.
