Thanks for your reply!

I don't know how to port Parabola but I'm willing to learn! I was 
thinking that I wanted to try to start contributing a bit but didn't 
know where to start. Is there something that I could read about it?

Parabola has support for MIPS64, but not MIPS32 unfortunately. I don't know too much about MIPS but give it a try and it doesn't work, perhaps you can make a port? Some folks have been working on an ARM port so it is probably doable. Supporting the Nanonote seems like a cool idea to me...
