Hi everyone,

I'm Robert Keevil, aka obo, and I've been involved with Rockbox for a
few years now, but not as actively as I would have liked! I'm a
Computer Science student studying in Houston, TX, but originally I'm
from a little corner of Wiltshire in England.

My project is to begin a port to the Sansa View - it's a newer PP SoC
DAP from Sansa, using the previous MI4 format, but with an undocumented
LCD... Although this device is a little over a year old now it is still
for sale, and an interesting target because it comes with relatively
high capacity of internal storage for a flash device (8, 16 and 32 Gb).

I'd like to join MT in congratulating the other students and wish
everyone a successful summer of code!
