Although she spends the first half talking about what it's good for before she's even used it, she actually powers it up after about 5 minutes.

10 minutes to set up Windows 10.

Long time OESF Member mickeyl, Zaurus developer, OpenZaurus member, Opie maintainer and employee number 2 at OpenMoko gives a history of OpenMoko.


IIRC, I used his source from opie-camera to learn how to access the Sharp CF camera module.

Recently I have been working on ZBedic because I wanted to update it and port it to Qt 5 so I can use it on my desktop. Long story short, porting it was too much hassle so I started a clean implementation. That project is called Frasmodic.

I think it won't be possible to build a Qt 5 version on Zaurus so the best thing to do is to try to update ZBedic. For example, libbedic is statically linked. I can make some improvements to it then build a dynamically linked ZBedic. However, the question is who would use it ? I don't see so many people posting on here saying they are using Sharp ROM and the majority of users seem to use zalarm without GUI (is that correct ?)

I also noticed from web history that someone generated a Japanese-English dictionary from EDICT where they mixed kana and kanji keywords together in the index. I have been generating similar dictionary files myself but I separated the kana and kanji versions. Having a combined index seems very sensible, I think I can adapt my scripts so that is also in my plans.

Some of my other dictionary files can be improved so I will try to get onto that task in the future. I am also curious about converting FreeDict dictionaries to bedic format, or supporting that format directly.

Finally, I am playing with the idea of porting Kanji Nirvana to desktop. I have been poking around the source; it seems doable but I have no idea about a time frame for it.

I know the forum software is planned to be updated.

In the mean time, I note that there are three buttons on the post editor that do not work:
"Insert Link", "Insert Image' and "Insert Email Link".

Disaster struck my SL-C750.

Some time ago I had to take apart my 750 due to a broken power button. When I put it back together the screen hinge make a much louder clicking sound. At the time I thought that reassembling it had left some part slightly loose. Now I know the real reason: I broke the hinge mounting.

In one of the photos attached is a close up of the screw that mounts the spring mechanism to the case. The mounting post that the screw screws into is broken. Does anyone know how to disassemble this properly ? I plan to use epoxy resin to glue in the post and the black part and then use a scalpel to trim to fit.

In the photo I have marked the LED light guides (1) and the power connector on the circuit board (2). The screw in question has an arrow.

The next photo shows an overall view.

I found the problem after I noticed the case has many cracks and one of the external screw mounts was falling off (due to the extra hinge movement). My plan is to skim over the cracked parts of the case with a wafer thin layer of epoxy resin. The last photo here shows the broken external screw mount.
