quite a few people want a copy of the CIA world fact book, and some places sell it in a form suitable for a PDA; there are quite a few people with Zs who read ebooks and I figured they might be interested in a free download, rather than having to use plucker to make their own version.

I wanted a copy for myself... some of the maps and data are hard to find. The maps look good even on the 5xxx models.

Thanks

Well, I had even written a small program of some basic facts culled from this in a Python/PyQt based program (my first program to learn Python on Zaurus) called WorldZ.
I even managed to sell a few copies, so I can imagine many people do want /need such country based data.

Maybe we can move this to the Off Topic forum after all

Ahh ok, my bad. Posts with just an url on here tend to be companies trying to spam 9 times out of 10, so I just keep an eye out smile.gif

ok, you're forgiven tongue.gif

I think the site's owners tend to smack-down spamming... this is one of the best forums I've used in terms of signal to noise ratio. I spend far too much time here. blink.gif
