What's the smallest ATtiny that works? Even the ATtiny13(A)?

Prescaling the clock will break the serial communication, won't it?
Thanks for the links!

I've successfully built a MegaISP on a breadboard - and I could programm an ATtiny13. Unfortunately, I wrote some code to set it's clock really slow and now the MegaISP cannot programm it any more.

Is there a way to slow down the MegaISP?

You could suspend a small metal ring between two electrodesd (all made from cheap copper wire): a movement will shake the ring an break the contact momentarily. Then use an interupt routine to detect a change of the signal.

I'd look up the pinout of the handspring conector. I'd suspect nothing sophisticated there (my original palm had a vanilla RS232 serial interface).
EDIT: maybe you can use these hints:

depends on your installation: you might try PIR sensors

Is the 75 Ohm resistor really needed? The linked page that explains signal generation put this resistor INSIDE the TV. The Other arduino TV-library did not recommend this resistor either!

Great stuff, you will definitely sell a lot of them!
Are the schematics available? Which IC do you use?

Some clock ICs can signal an alarm by themselves. So you could send your Arduino to sleep and have it wake up by an interrupt triggered by the clock IC.
Well, if power consumption is not your concern, just get the time from the clock IC, compare it to the alarm time, delay(1000), and start from the beginning.
Of course, you can do this without additional hardware (like the clock IC) - the search-function will help.

The JTAG-hardware debugger will not work because the 328P does not have a JTAG interface.

So, where's your problem? Your code works, and you can wrap it up into a nice, small function that you call from your main program.

+1 for the servo - this is a must.
Small vibration motors are cheap and fun, too.
A Wii nunchuck clone is cheap (9 EUR) and offers a lot.

if i get you right, the you have a direct connection between the buttons and the keys, thus pressing a button sends a signal regardless of the pinmode. so this cannot work. get yourself some shift registers to increase the pincount.
