I posted this question a while back, but didn't get much of a response. Maybe what I'm looking for just doesn't exist, but I thought I'd try asking again in case someone found what I'm looking for.

I'd like a case similar to the one I got with my Clie UX-50. I definitely need/want a case where the horizontal dimension is longer than the vertical and has an easy to open flap (velcro, magnetic, snap... don't really want a zipper). Additionally, I'd really like to have a small pocket/pouch to carry 1 or 2 CF cards and maybe a SD card.

I love the cases from GrinderGear and plan to order the Scout. I had the Basecamp when I had an iPaq H3635 and Clie NX-60. It was great because it had room for my Socket cellular modem cable, CF cards, memory sticks, and other accessories. But it was hard to put your arms down to your side with this case as it was massive and I didn't like wearing it further up front... kind of uncomfortable.
Anyway, I kinda wish GrinderGear made a case that was like the Scout but just oriented differently. These cases that have the vertical dimension longer than the horizontal seem to get caught on a lot more stuff than my Clie UX case did and it's more comfortable to wear when seated.

If no one knows of a case such as the one I describe above, I'll have my girlfriend make one... she rocks at this stuff. If it turns out well, I'll post and probably could get her to make some for sale if anyone would be interested.

One thing I like about my UX-50 is the ability to turn on bluetooth and sit in the airport/bus station/mall/etc and go toothing (or bluejacking). With the keyboard, it was easy to chat with others via bluetooth or confuse a passerby with screwed up message.

I was hoping to be able to do the same on the Z, but I only see the option to send contacts in the addressbook via IR. Anyone know of an application that would allow me to do this? Do the tkc PIM apps have this functionality?

As many of you noticed, Yahoo! Mail has been "upgraded" today. Therefore, unless you are running MSIE 6.0 or Netscape 7.1, have fun. (No Safari does not work!!! They say it does, but I had huge problems this morning on both of my Macs selecting the "Delete", "Reply", and "Forward" buttons.)

Anyway, I tried accessing Yahoo! Mail with my Z and NetFront 3. It didn't like my user agent and gave me the option to upgrade to one of their preferred browsers or use the version of Yahoo! Mail that works with my browser. Selecting the latter just sends me back to the same page. However, each time I noticed in the "Welcome <so and so> [Sign Out, My Account" the username kept changing. One time it said I was something like uaedo_saeed and another time something like mdadino2000.

I switched my user agent to look like MSIE 6.0 and attempted to go to "My Account", but I must've clicked the wrong link and I ended up just going straight to my mail... and it was my mail.

While this is probably nothing (other than a irritation for those of us not using someone's preferred browser since they can't create W3C standard webpages or pages with so much crap in it that it doesn't work well in other browser... I think this page is using CSS heavily in the layout), I don't know if I'm comfortable that while on that page directing me to upgrade or use the old Yahoo! Mail that I'm being identified as someone other than who I am. Just thought I'd share that with you.

I posted this in another forum w/o a response, so I thought I'd try here.

I was wondering if anyone has gotten a bluetooth keyboard, in particular the one from Apple, working with their Z? If so, are you still able to dial-out via a bluetooth cell phone connection or are there any quirks involved in using the keyboard?

I suppose it's probably just as easy to use the USB cable or WiFi connection to VNC into the Z, but it seems that all of the VNC client/server combos I've tried are way to slow on OS X. I've had the best luck using the VNCThing client on my Mac, but even that is really slow and unresponsive.

I'm receiving the following error when using ar to extract a Debian binary package format version 2:

ar: error while loading shared libraries: libbfd- cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory

Is anyone else getting this error?
