I am finally back again after many months, July to November of not using my 6k, of not using my Z. Most of it being my own fault of not thinking about that I could uses the dock to charge my Z instead of the plug ont he bottom of the Z. The 6k can take a beating, I drop my several times a day and it still works but falling off a desk with the power cord plug in can bend the pin for the power connecter.

But enough about my mishaps, on to the reason from my return and new post.

During the time I was not using my Z my office change its policy on the wifi network. Now they require WEP. I know that the Z can uses WEP since I used it when I was at school. My problem with using WEP is that they will not give me the key. Our IT staff enters the key into our computers. They will not put it on my Z since it shows the WEP key in clear text as it is being typed in. They want to have stars appear when they enter the key before they will allow my Z on the network. I am not sure if pdaxrom or OpenZaurus do this since I have not flashed over to them since I got my Z back up and running in November.

Can any one tell me if one of the other roms stars out the WEP key as it is being entered. I am not going to tell them it is being stored to teh file system in a plan text file but if I can get to so that it is entered in with stars and verified my IT staff will be happy.

Here is my only restrictions to be able to switch rom.(I know I was one of the first people with openzaurus on a 6k but life has changed since those times) I need to be able to sync with my Outlook Calendar/Entourage Calendar. I currently use my doc to sync on my windows workstation at work and then use KO/Pi to sync from the SharpDTM to get my calendar so that I have my alarms and know where I should be an what I should be doing. I know before July when I was still using the wifi network here at work, I was work on being able to have KO/Pi on my windows workstation sync with outlook and then have KO/Pi on my desktop sync with that from anywhere in the office when I was using OpenZaurus. I never got this to work very well since it required me to do an import from ol when every I wanted to do this. I am now starting on working seeing what I can do about this, but any recommendations or alternatives would be great.

I hate the idea that I am going to have to buy a palm or a Treo just so I can have my calendar with me, though I am looking at getting a Motorola A780 so that I can have everything in one instead of carrying to many items. I have loved my Z when I have been using it over the late year and a half+. It really helped with my Senior year on college, but I was able to keep my calender and todos on my Z and did not have to worry about syncing with anything else other then making a backup to my CF card.

Now that I have rambled away let me recap on my question:

1. Can I get it so that entering the WAP does not show on the screen?
2. If I switch roms to achieve the first question do I have a easy way to sync with my outlook calendar and todo’s?
