It's started getting cooler here in brisbane - natives would probably say it's freezing, but they don't know what cold is. I've consequently fallen into the habit of taking long baths in the evening with a good book (long showers are verboten due to water restrictions, and the books don't survive long). I've run out of unread books and decided I need some way of using my Z instead. Yes, I am probably nuts.

Some heavy plastic sheet, a hot iron, and 30 minutes later, and I have a waterproof pouch for my Z which is flexible enough to let me use the keyboard or a stylus easily, but heavy enough that it's unlikely to tear. I've currently got it undergoing leak testing - I put a berocca tablet and a weight into it and tossed it in the bath. If it's not filled with orange foam in the morning I might consider doing a live test...

Get a pelican case. I've got the 1020 as shown in pic. (sorry for indoor tungsten lighting, I didn't use the flash)
This case also floats in water and has a bladder vent to let pressure escape, but not to let air/water inside.

My Zaurus slipped overboard in my friend's boat, and after we used the dip net to "fish" it out of the river, the inside of this case was perfectly dry.

That was a story I just made up, but these cases are to be used near or in water. smile.gif
