** EDIT: SOLD to Cortez! **

The release of the new iPod Touch also marked the arrival of the device that I always wanted my Zaurus to be. Therefore I'm looking to sell my SL-6000L, which has been functioning only as a voice recorder for about a year. I invested a lot of money in kitting it out, so it comes with some handy extras.
  • SL-6000L (the model with the 3.5" 640x480 screen!). A bit faded and scratched in places, as you might expect, but no worse for the wear. The screen has been covered with protective film since about the sixth month of ownership. The plastic display protector is still in place and has rarely been taken off.
  • Socket Bluetooth CF card. Doesn't stick out and is compatible with a lot of open-source drivers.
  • Extra battery. This has been kept in the fridge at 40% charge for optimal longevity. The original battery still holds a fairly long charge, though a Wi-Fi connection will easily drain it in about an hour.
  • 1GB SD and CF cards (1 each). This is the maximum storage capacity the original Sharp ROM is compatible with.
  • The original Sharp (Qtopia) ROM with extended libraries and tons of working software. For example, I paid around $40 for a Textmaker license, and I've gathered great apps many of which have since vanished online from far and wide. I'll remove all my personal data but keep my highly polished ROM as is. Seriously, it looks good and is very stable.
  • Dock and power cord (naturally).
  • At least one extra stylus.
  • 2.5mm to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter. This is important if you want to, say, listen to music.
  • All the original software CDs.
  • I'll even throw in some Displex display polish.
I'm happy to offer photos of the unit, screenshots of the tweaked ROM, and a list of the installed software and/or libraries. To make it easier, I may post the classified on my blog in the next few days.

I'm in Germany but will ship to anywhere except Nigeria (unless, of course, you're a prince who's looking to temporarily transfer money into my bank account). I'm asking for 125 euros ($175) on account of all the extras, which put my total expenditure somewhere in the $500 range, but that price is definitely negotiable. Most important to me is that my Z finds a good home.

Please get in touch if you're interested!

Well, the title of this thread is my question. Is KDE PIM/Pi dead? There have been no updates since the 2.2.7 testing version from October 2005, the Pi-Sync site has had no news since August 2005, and the KDE PIM/Pi thread on these forums hasn't had any activity since March 2006.

This was one of the most useful apps on my Z, and I suppose I expected it to keep getting better and better and work out all its kinks. There was a promising flurry of activity just before it lost all signs of life. New versions seemed to be coming out every week. And now... nothing.

So I'm watching the "Dalek" episode of the 2005 series of Doctor Who. And there's this aide who does something odd with his PDA: he expands it.

Close-up comes, and what do I see? One of the silver SL-5XXX Zaurus models.

This episode was set in something like 2020, so I'm guessing that by this time Microsoft has been supplanted by the open-source movement and retro hardware.

Attached are two shots of the close-up. I've also made a mediocre quality MP4 video clip of the short sequence if anyone wants it, but there's not much more revealed than what you're seeing in these images.

This isn't a Mac "issue" per se, but it doesn't really belong in a non-Mac-related forum here.

We're a pretty geeky crowd here, and I was wondering how many of you fellow Z users are recent (as in, the past year) switchers to the Mac? You get one side on, for instance, the MacRumors forums, where non-techie folks seem to be a dime a dozen, but it'd be nice to get some idea of how many power users have taken the plunge.

For the record, I switched in the pre-iPod days.

From this longer post on Macsimum News:

"A Nokia press release from the World Wide Web Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland, states that they’ll be releasing their Web Browser for S60, based on Apple’s WebCore to the open source community. Here’s the press release in its entirety:

Mobility-enhanced code release to drive open source collaboration, reduce browser fragmentation & deliver true web rendering on smartphone devices..."

Does this look like something we might be able to get on the Z? Sounds like it would be perfect.
