the site gets on average 4k - 7k hits per day (it was half that before the zaurus.com crash in November)... but the stats for the site show that it's been busy, both yesterday and today. Yesterday we got 59714 hits, and today we're already at 40746 hits. That's quite a jump from just a few thousand.

I've checked around the various news sites to see if there have been any recent referrals... but nothing.

Mind you, I think it's great, but I'm just wondering what's driving the traffic...

I think the people finally starting to realize that there's not much more to expect from Sharp (except great Hardware). They are bascially just _hosting_ zaurus.com/dev/board, but doing nothing else. You are doing much more for the Zaurus community - this is why this board also attracts developers like me. I already started to slowly fade out participation on both the zaurus.com/dev/board and the externe.net/zaurus/forum.

I don't know how many people got an SL-c860 for Christmas, but that's why I've been here. wink.gif

This seems to be the place for the clamshell zaurus, but 5500 and 5000s are not getting much attention here.

Well. Honestly, I am getting cxx envy. the 5xxx had it's fun, but the clamshell does appeal to me with a bigger keypad and a wider assortment of ROMs available to it. If I had the money, off to a C760 I would go smile.gif

When the Sharp site went down I went through withdraw and turned here. Before, I would check here from time to time but the majority of discussions seemed to be on their site and it kept my attention. Now that there is a lot more activity it keeps me interested and I check it more often than the Sharp site.

I first heard of this site when i heard about the SL-6000, since then, I've been looking around the site, and i finally decided to join in. I don't have my zaurus yet, but i hope that will come soon...

Wether it's a 6000, or if I take the risk of no warranty with a 7x0.

I like to be extra careful with support and warranty, you never know when you have a non-techie girlfriend. :-P So far she's ruined my digital cam, and my old cliƩ. Not to mention the few dents she's put on my cliƩ... now that i think of it, maybe i DO need a ruggedized pda with her around...

i guess i have to pick between ruggedized pda+gf, or cool clamshell... hmmm... tough pick. what would you guys do? :-P

www.dynamism.com does provide warranty and support for their products. You just can't call Sharp directly for support. From what I understand, dynamism's support and warranty are really good.

Well my wife saw my Zaurus a liked it (she is not a techie) so I got her a 5500 used on ebay. She's yet to get interested in coming out here but she does use it alot as a PIM and to surf the net. The surprising part is I've had to do very little for her with it she figured out how to flash it and has installed several packages on her own.

I knew this site existed before the big crash (not wallstreet biggrin.gif the sharp/dev crash).

It was the first place I visited in an effort to find out what hapened to the Sharp site.

I was also really pissed at them for taking down community, just when I needed some files from there. Some friendly bod uploaded them here and saved my bacon. Sharp never offered an apology, or even a reason and I hate them for that.

I must admit, the Sharp site was my favorite mainly because of Spencer.

Now he has gone, nobody has stepped into the breach, and it doesn't seem as friendly in there anymore.

No question about it, Spencer *was* Sharp/dev.

Personnally, I now check this site before the Sharp site, so when the same question gets asked on both boards, I tend to reply on this one only. This makes people think that they get a better response over here.

I also agree with edl867, this site is more clamshell orientated (the home of x.11) and now I have one, it makes me prefer this site even more.

If this site didn't exist, then I may not have bought the clamshell at all.

Here we have moderators that are firmly committed to the zaurus, they even own at least one themselves.

Keep up the good work ORG.

Just my 2p's worth

I've noticed a few times in the past week that spencer has been logged onto Sharp/Dev. Not sure if it's him or someone else from Sharp using his account. I will agree it is definitly not the same there now. Very few posts.

Offroadgeek: getting her to stop going for my car was easy... she's just attracted to gadgets even though she's not a techie. For her a PDA is a gameboy for grownups.

TAIM: I know about dynamism, it's just that... is it really worth all that extra money? :| For the extra $100 I could get a decent sized CF card. It's not just about warranty, but value.

ZBones: I have to agree with you, the moderators for the site are really great and helpful. Keep up the good work. I hope this site will also be a great home for people who buy the new 6000's
