As an update, I realized that the library I wanted to code had already been made (dang...).

Anyway, we'll see what happens, and feel free to keep posing ideas.

adf: That has the same sort of problems as matthis's request: Network programming/syncing. I don't have the skills to do that. sad.gif Sorry.

lol not a problem.

Ooh, yeah, lots of interesting suggestions.

It would be cool if we had fax software that wasn't so limited.

Sketches of Q does let you edit prior sketches, but not if they aren't sketches of q pngs iirc.

A command line family tree program! The GUI one has serious bugs.

Whatever you do, please make it cross-platform so we all can use it????

How about something to guide people thru the steps of setting up wireless that works? I don't need it, but so many would be helped by something like that.

cheers!

No need to worry about whatever I turn out (or not smile.gif) being cross-platform. Everything I write I do my best to make it work on the Z (screen res-, RAM-, and CPU-wise), plus I don't use proprietary toolkits, so the deps are free as well. GPL also happens to be my license of choice smile.gif

Of course, GPL is the only way to fly! I am just thinking there's so many who struggle over how to make sure their wireless cards will work on the Z, and something that took them thru setting up wireless from that level would be an extremely valuable tool.

If I knew wireless stuff and had the time, I'd write a general webpage about that, akin to my ipk installation guide, but a tool to complement what you've already written would be so cool. What do other's think?

Does anybody know of any good how-to guides for making my code be able to be built with:

CODE
./configure
make
make install


?

It would make it feel more polished to me, and I know I feel more comfortable trying software that builds in a standard way than software that builds oddly. I'm sure other people would agree/enjoy it, if I ever get complete-ish code released.

Thanks.

First off, I just skimmed the linked book, I did not read all of it, nor did I read any of it in depth. Please forgive me, then, if these are dumb questions:

So you must manually make files for autotools to use to generate the others?

I assume this is not worth the time when the code is likely to grow and change a good amount, no?

How much time does it take to make all of the files necessary? To update them when more source files are added/the source files change?

Thanks.

EDIT: And is there anything special I need to do to if I'm dealing with a library and not an app, per se?

I've been bored lately, and am looking for a project to work on (from scratch, I have yet to master working on a team). What ideas do people have?


Mentor:

http://www.wulisoft.com/mtrwhat.htm

It was (is) an excellent task management app for the psion - some people have kept their psions running purely to keep this app going.

I think the developer basically gave up on it several years ago - it was never quite finished in terms of synching etc, but certainly worked well enough to be very usable. I've never found anything as good since switching to a Zaurus (which has many other advantages).

I used to use Mentor on my Psion some time back, but now I'm using Org Mode for my timekeeping. It runs on top of Emacs - which means you have to learn the basics of Emacs first - but I've found it invaluable.

You keep all your notes in a text file in a big outline tree, and you can easily insert TODOs with a schedule date, and a deadline date if necessary. There's an interactive agenda view which shows all the TODOs, appointments, etc. for a time period, such as the upcoming week. In the agenda view old, incomplete TODOs are shown in red, and you can re-schedule them with a few key presses. It only takes a few key clicks to mark a TODO as done.

Well worth a try.

Dan

What I would *really* like is to have freemind working on cacko.

Not necessarily in graphic mode, but in the way that I can work on the files I've created on my PC, folding leaves in and out, and sync back and forth. (The syncing can be done very well via synctoy.)

Thanks,
MaBo

How about a Portabase port to GTK/Zubuntu?

Also agreed on the calendar with Google updating capability...
