Should be 'chances' of course :)

Anyhow, just saw for my name on http://wiki.maemo.org/Community_Awards
Submissions 'for any device'. But see subject, I prefer a N9.

At least that is what the above link says, but now I remembered that
that was about the time the n800 came. Had a n770 too and indeed my
first kmplayer upload is from 2006-07-01.
