Wot, you don't drink Beer! What do you drink?

I'm from west yorks, and can make york in 30 mins in the car, or 15 mins on the bike (no plod reading this I hope)biggrin.gif

Mind you a zug meet with only 2 People would still be a bit lame.

As I've just gone back to my roots, and purchased a new motorbike, I am willing to go within 100 miles of Leeds. Any excuse to use it is good at the moment.

PS, It has to be a "dry" day as you can't get your knee down in the wet!

Here is another Southampton/London (but this time home/University) user.
Recently obtained a 5500 to play with Java API to Bluetooth.

Hi All,

I'm soon to be joining the ranks of the UKZUG .. I've been looking for a 'decent' pda for a while, and job dictates I have something very soon, which I can network and SSH into remote servers.

Open Source is the big upside !

I'm dithering between the 5xxx, 6xxx and the 860, although it seems most users are upgrading to the 860.

Any advice on a good model ?

Um...I'm another British zaurus owner, but living in Japan at the moment. Recently bought an 860 (for comfortably under 300 quid at current exchange rates) and am gradually getting to grips with it...a bit of a linux newbie, although I have always had a unix environment at work.

Anyway, it's lots of fun to play with, but I'm surprised at how slow and clunky it seems compared to my previous pda, a psion revo. And I'm still looking for a to-do list/scheduler anything like as good as Mentor...

Yeah, I'm based in London (north), but travel through the centre regularly, and work a lot on the se coast, as well in the s.west.

I bit the bullet and ordered the 860 through shirtpocket this morning, ordered a bluetooth and WiFi module with it.

Will be moving to Reading next month, so wondered what developments there were on a gathering ??

Typical, right on my doorstep too, and I can't go.

hmmph.

Thanks for the headsup anyway, and welcome to the zug.

Thanks for posting. I'm replying from a wireless connection in a pub at paddington station !! laugh.gif

Got the C860 two days ago and am over the moon with it.

Poer drain on the wireless card is harsh, but the device rocks. I don't know if I can get Opera running on the original sharp rom. But apache is set up.

I need som advice on setting up adevelopment environment so I can compile basiv unix progs. But I feel so happy to be amongst a good zaurus group biggrin.gif

Couldn't make the linux doo up norf,but hope all that go, have fun.

ket.

"Poer drain on the wireless card is harsh"

[Damn those small keyboards :-] What flavour of wireless card do you have - the Shirtpocket Socket one? I think the newer Socket ones have lower consumption - about 20mA in standby (which is the usual state). But they are about twice the price.

Isn't it about time Shirtpocket removed the note that they have not tried them with the Zaurus? smile.gif

Hello!

Another C860 user here, from the East Hampshire area. Got mine from ShirtPocket in May, have loved it ever since - especially the wireless! (Symbol Spectrum, works fine with Cacko QT 1.21, power drain not too bad).

Looks like there's a fair few Psion refugees here, so I wonder if anyone else is still going through withdrawl symptoms from Palmtop Money like me, and if so what they're doing about it?

I am also trying to migrate from a Psion, struggling in a few areas:-

Route Finder/GPS (TomTom)
Vacation Tracking (VacTrac5)
Finances (JABC)

They do a Java version for the Zaurus but it does not work on the Zaurus C series, not sure why. Anyone fancy trying to get it to work, downloads at www.freepoc.de/software.php.

Hmm, Well I've tried it now, and I can get it to start....

But there's something wonky in the implementation, somewhere, because it can't write any files (you get series of java.io.* messages when creating your first file). Then, you can't quit the app because every attempt causes it to try to start closing it's transaction files, which don't exist because it can't write to disk...

So there's a very limited sense of the word "working" if I say I can get it working on a C860....

This is with the Jeode JVM on top of Cacko 1.21b...

And it's the single most complex install I've done on the Z, with various unpackings and file movements and all sorts. Definitely a case of having to RTFM first.

(I've heard reports from other people who've tried JABP that's it's both limited AND buggy anyway, to the extent that it's not a viable proposition at the minute. But that's hearsay.)
