Go to the Simpletech.com Estore, add the Simpletech ProX 256MB SD card to your shopping cart ($86), add coupon 24834-876 (-$32), S/H is free, makes it $54 shipped, no mail-in rebates.

I received mine about 5 weeks ago. This seems to be an ongoing promotion that was down for a while but is up again.

This is probably the highest quality (and fastest) SD card you could get right now, the exact opposite of those crappy Sandisks.

Now if only someone could find a good deal on the 512MB model... wink.gif

well, what is it? :twisted:

I got latex up and running on my Z. It is a minimal installation, consisting only of latex, xdvi and dvips. I also got ghostscript so that pdfs can be distilled and xdvi does preview embedded graphics (which looks gorgeous on the little screen). Everything runs at very usable speed and does not consume too much space (3.5MB for latex with a full set of cm/ams fonts and 2.1MB for ghostscript v8.14 without fonts, all sizes compressed), so keeping it on the internal flash of the Z poses no problems. The setup works completely without pk fonts, they would eat up too much space and wear down the internal flash by their random recreation. The present installation only contains the base system, so carefully pick and install those additional style files you need (they compress well). You would need about another 1.5MB compressed for a full set of base35 type1 files (urw or adobe, not provided), shared by dvips and ghostscript. Due to the minimalistic nature of the present setup, it is recommeded to have a desktop with a complete texmf tree to fill in the needed style files. I realize I may need to add few selected binaries like bibtex or makeindex and will do so in due course. I don't use lyx, so don't ask for it. The binaries can downloaded from here.

I got qemu to compile for arm host and i386 user mode (it runs i386 linux binaries on the Z but does not emulate a complete PC).
Some definitely non-trivial programs run just fine (only a little slow) so it looks quite promising.

You can download the qemu-i386 binary and further comments from here.

Go to hsn.com, search for item 684027, "Pretec 802.11b Wireless PDA Card with PC Adapter" ($29.64), proceed to checkout, add coupon 130004 ($15 off $20, exp. 04/30/04), with $5.95 S&H ends up at $20.59 biggrin.gif

Please note that I found this myself and AFAIK it is not posted on any of the usual deal boards. I suggest we keep quiet about it until all ZUG members that want one got into the deal.
