I think it would be a nice idea to share links of recently updated blogs/websites of people using their Zauruses, which we might stumble upon while searching for other stuff. I'll start with this blog:
A Zaurus SL-C760 used during train commutes:
...though I guess he should install the >1GB SD patch and search for a more modern wifi solution

I'd like to announce that I have just been promoted to moderator, thanks to speculatrix
Anyway, he has asked me if any other here would like to become a moderator, or even an admin. A moderator can basically delete or modify any post that might be offensive/spam, move posts from a wrong thread and validate new users (paying attention that they are not spambots, and trying to not make them wait for too long before they can post). I believe we need more active moderators and admins, at the moment the only active admins are speculatrix and InSearchOf, and ArchiMark as a moderator... are there any other moderators here?

It has been announced that the support for Zaurus has been discontinued, for the reason that "it hasn't made the EABI jump and will be permanently broken shortly when we use the hardware thread register in userland".
So, the last version of OpenBSD for Zaurus will be the recently released 6.0: https://www.openbsd.org/60.html
I wonder how much effort it would have taken to do the switch from OABI to EABI...

The Verge has published, in the Tokyo Thrift column, a review of the Zaurus MI-C1. Tokyo Thrift, as described in the page, "is a column on The Verge where Sam Byford, news editor for Asia, trawls the second-hand market to explore the history, design, and culture of Japanese gadgets. It runs on the last Sunday of each month." It's a nice reading and a nice trip down memory lane:
Thanks to Tomoe for the link!
