Hi there,

I haven't used my Zaurus for a while but it is in perfect condition.
I need some extra cash so would love it to go to a good home.

Includes SL-3100
CF Bluetooth (Socket)
CF Wireless Card (Socket)
Extra Battery
CE-RH2 remote control
Nifty Lowepro carry case (fits perfectly and has belt strap)

Make me an offer! I'm happy to ship overseas (I'm in AUS)
I can list it on Ebay if there's interest...

send me an email at zaurus[at]greenant[dot]net
if you're interested

I thought this was just a cache issue initially, but I have tested it on my Mac and on a Windows Computer at work.

Opera Version 9.22

When accessing the forum, Opera gives the following error, Firefox works fine on both platforms

You tried to access the address https://oesf.org/forum/, which is currently unavailable

Anyone else had this problem? I searched the forums but didn't find any other reports.

I would like to get a GPS enabled phone that I can use as a GPS receiver for my Zaurus.
Does anyone know of any GPS phones that will allow NMEA protocol to be used by the Zaurus over bluetooth?

I love the form factor of my 3100 but sometimes it would be great to have a larger screen (for reading/annotating PDFs). Vgaout is trcicky to say the least so I have been looking for the most stripped down screen that could be coupled to the zaurus....

The closest I have found is the Viewsonic V210 or V212
It has a 10" touch screen and 4 hours battery life. It uses a wireless interface and has a CF port (V212). Weighs about 1.3kg

Sounds perfect... but it runs windows CE and as far as I can see it does not support a VNC client program mad.gif

Not sure if it's hackable (runs strongarm 400mHz) and I haven't been able to find any sites saying that anyone has tried.

Is this likely to be feasible?
