I'm using an insecure browser right this minute! Be afraid. Be very.. wait, that's me that should be afraid. Rats.
Where did the project pick up the source code (besides mozilla.org) for the 1.0 version of Firefox? is someone tooled to do the build of the latest versions of ff and mozilla? I haven't checked, but I imagine thunderbird and sunbird need refreshing. too. I'm prepared to help, but I'm not set up for cross compiling with this toolkit. And I'm not patient enough to build anything like Mozilla on any of my Zaurii. 8)
The kernel probably needs multiple security patches too. See my post later in this thread.

Note: Updated for nonpareil_0.67-pdaxrom-0.1 release
HP Calculators for pdaXrom/kathrin
This is a new release of my port of nonpareil which is a microcode level simulator of old HP desktop calculators by Eric Smith. Highlights of this release include the addition of 14 (!) calculators, including the HP-41CX.
All the calculators together take up lots of space, so I have separated out the base simulator, and produced add-on packages for the calculators. Here is a :rogues gallery" of the included calculators:

The quoted names refer to processor architectures. Refer to Eric's site for details.
As you can see, the "Voyager" calculators are layed out in landscape mode. This probably makes them the most suitable calculators for actual use on a clamshell Zaurus. The "portrait mode" calculators will fit on a clamshell's rotated screen, or on an SL-6000's normal mode screen. Of these, the HP-41CX is the most powerful, with Alphanumerics and superior programmibility. Of couse, it's 25 years old, making it among the younger of the calculators represented!
The HP-41C is the machine on which I first learned to program back in 1982. I didn't even know that was what I was doing until I was a good way through the introductory material in the user manual. For years, in order to understand an unfamiliar algorithm, I would code it in HP-41CV's register-oriented assembler-like RPN language. Finding nonpareil was therefore a great delight. Before there was Zaurus, before there was Linux, there was this calculator. Awwww.
Anyhow, I built this package natively on my 860 using the zgcc from kathrin-rc10. I imagine there might be difficulty running it on an earlier version, but maybe not. (It is reported to run on RC9 as well.) You will need to install the base ipk nonpareil_0.62, then one or more of the nonpareil-hp* calculator packages Note that if you installed the first version of this software, hp-41cv-nonpareil_0.62_armv5tel.ipk, you must uninstall it before installing these packages. If you don't, you will get errors when you install the new ones.
www.hp41.org Great starting point. Thanks to sheck.r!
nonpareil.brouhaha.com Eric Smith's site for this software. Lot's of useful docs and links on his simulators.
