Has anyone run Contiki on the C-64?

http://www.sics.se/contiki/

I've read about it, but haven't actually heard any first-hand reviews. I was thinking about trying it out, when my C-64 arrives.

Yes, I have both run Contiki and is among the developers. But I'm terribly idle, I have almost never done a single thing to Contiki, and zero commits in any case.

Many, many, many moons ago.. It is pretty darn cool to web surf or host a web server on a C64 using RR-net.. :)

Cheers,

As a side note, Adam Dunkels the main creator of Contiki just got awarded the Roger Needham Prize 2008. It is rewarded by Microsoft Research and Eurosys to a researcher in Europe who has written the most exceptional PhD thesis of the year. I haven't looked up what the prize entitles, but it is very nice to see someone who not only begun his career on a C64 but also developed an exceptional piece of C64 software four years later get credited by Microsoft. :-D

Thanks for the info all! I did get to play with the Java-based C-64 emulator that runs Contiki, linked from the Contiki website. It looks pretty neat. I will give Contiki a run when my C-64 finally arrives.
