This is driving me mad. I've searched the web high and low, I've scoured every related post on this site but can't find a note taking app that suits my needs.

I've got an SL-C3200 with CackoLite and I'm looking for a simple notes app that can have categories associated with the notes.

Can anyone recommend something? Being able to export them in one go (or at least back them up) would be nice too.

Is there a way to build a minimal sharp ROM?
Or can I get one prebuilt?
Or can I just install/uninstall software then just do a backup? Will there be settings/shared files left over?

After playing with all the ROM's I've finally settled on Sharp ROM cause it just works! I'm currently using TRIsoft English Sharp ROM which has a few extras and I've finally decided that Kopi is actually quite good. Movies and music is the only other thing I use. I'd be interested in the tetsu kernal but can't find english info/download. Movies seem a bit slow in the standard ROM.

What I want to do though is get the right software for my needs and nothing more, then do a backup so it's easy to get it back the way I want it.

So what's the easiest way to acheive this?

I've got gcc installed and compiled and run a basic C++ hello world program but I'd like to do some GUI development preferably so that it looks nice on XFCE. I've done C++ development in the past but it's been solely on Win32. Now I'm mainly a Java/C# developer with a bit of Ruby on Rails thrown in for good measure (you get the picture).

So what do I need to do GUI development? Can anyone point me at some documentation? I've heard about FLTK but not really sure where to start. Just not sure where to start.

When I got my new Z I order a metal stylus and screen protector from fig labs.

I've just lost my second stylus. The first one lasted a mere 30 minutes until it fell to the floor and the nib popped off. This is from a desk to a soft carpet floor. I wasn't expecting that. Well the people at Figlabs sent another one and I have to say that it managed to last a whole month until just now when I pulled it out of the Z and was left just holding the end. Not impressed.

Of course to complete the story I must say that I've also given up on the screen protector. When I placed it on the screen I managed to get a couple of specs of dust underneath it. After a while I couldn't bear it anymore and decided to remove the protector to clean it. Apparently it washes clean. Yea right. After very carefully washing it I was just lowering back onto the screen when I noticed that it wasn't at all clean. You see the underside is sticky, naturally, so that it adheres to the screen of the Z. Of course this tends to attract dust and so by removing it I had got even more dust on the sticky side. Any attempts to clean it resulted in an even more unfavorable condition than previously.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as would any notes of sympathy!

Is it me or is The Daily Journal a little buggy. It's almost what I want from a PIM although it's a little simple. However, I've noticed that when adding contacts it sometimes removes others.

I'm tempted to write my own version as I'd like to optimize it for the Zaurus and add a few extra things such as a prioritizing todo's as well as make it look a little nicer in XFCE.

I'd just like to check though to make sure it's nothing I'm doing wrong before I embark on this mammoth task
