Hmmm... So it seems you've done the porting algorithm
fairly religiously so far, maybe even including the
"while (learning)" clause. :-)

Seems you are even anticipating the else clause of the
standard "if (available_money > toLocalCurrency ($2500)" test.
That's good.

Many people are familiar with this process.  Some to greater
extent than others, so help us out a bit too.

Let's start with your _actual_ questions.  What are they?

Did you continue through the porting algorithm?  Did you make
your own board directory and files?  Have you built a new
image for it?  Downloaded it?  Do you have a BDI2000 to use?

We're going to need some more details from you here...
