Okay, I just saw this deal for two, 2.2 GB CF+ Type II MicroDrives for only $82 each. I've been looking for a bigger flash card, and this looks like it.

But I had a couple of quick questions..

- Type II CFs don't work on all devices, will they work on the 6000?
- Will I have to do some special formatting because of the size, or will it just work?
- What're the downside to MicroDrives? Longer/shorter battery life? Same as normal flash?

Please respond quickly, cuz I don't know how long this deal will be around for!

Hey all..

What offline www readers are you guys using? I trield a couple listed on killfiz.de/zaurus but none of them would install.

I'm sure that some people out there are able to use Opera for reading the latest sports news in style during their morning commute.. so what are you guys using? And what are some good sites you all have found to pull content from daily?

I recently got my 6000, and it's great. But I find myself still thinking in traditional PDA mode when brainstorming about things I can run on it.

So here I submit a request to the community: What are some cool apps you guys have gotten running on this thing so far? And were there any tricks involved?

One 'out of the box' thing I DID try.. was to get LinPhone working on it. The mic and speaker are in a perfect spot to just hold to your head like a regular phone.. but for whatever reason the program didn't start sad.gif

But anyway.. what are some great programs to have on there, and how did you guys go about installing them?

For some reason, whenever I run an older app (55/5600) started from the Application menu, the resolution gets all jacked up. It looks like it's 'zoomed in' and everything is pixelated.

Now, I know that some of this is to be expected due to the higher resolution on the 6000, but I think I'm seeing a resolution that's even below what it would be on a 55/5600.

For instance, I recently installed Gaim. If I start it from the App menu, everything is 'zoomed in' -- so much so that the 'Add Account' button isn't even on the screen (and thus not clickable). I found a temporary workaround by starting from the console (that appears to keep it in the high resolution mode), but as soon as I switch away to a different program and come back, the resolution is 'zoomed in' again.

I believe this is happening in just about every older program I've tried to run. And unfortunately, I think it's making a number of programs unusable by hiding menu options, or entire window segments.

Am I totally missing some simple setting?

Hey all..

I needed a durable, wifi-ready PDA that ran Linux. $700 later, I got one.. but I'm having trouble getting started!

Are there any guides to getting started, that would apply to the 6000?

For instance, should I just be able to d/l and install most 5600 apps, or could that break something? I did try the SSH client, but it doesn't install.

And how do I go about getting GCC installed? Is it correct that, once I get that installed, I should just be able to compile any programs?

And should I install X as one of the first steps? Or can the existing window manager handle most things?

Sorry for the dumb questions.. but I can't find the answers anywhere..
