I would like to get this idea out there before I forget it. I realize that when I am browsing the web, I spend a lot of my time simply reading the current web page. I wonder if it is feasible to reprogram Firefox or some other web browser to shut off power to the wireless networking card after loading a web page until I click on a web link, click on the home page button, select a bookmark, or enter a new URL in the address bar to take me to a different page. That way, you should be able to browse the web a lot longer than you would be able to do by having the wireless network card on during the whole web browsing session. Does the wireless card have to be constantly on to maintain the wireless connection?

For the past several days, I was wondering if someone had pulled the plug on the OESF forums. I finally found this place again via a Google search. If


without the "s" at the end is going to be the new permanent address for the OESF forum, then the link to the forum from


should be fixed to point to the new web address.

I tried the modified voicerec program, and it no longer gives me a false message that my 4GB CF card is out of space, but I get an error message:

QLibrary open failed!: /home/QtPalmtop/lib/libqsfepj.so, libkke.so.1: cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory

libkke seems to be related to Japanese language input, based on a Google search. My Zaurus SL-C760 was converted to English by the previous owner.

I recently purchased a 4GB CompactFlash card for my Zaurus SL-C760. When I try to use the Voice Recorder program that comes with the stock Sharp ROM, the Voice Recorder program informs me that there is not enough storage space. I am guessing that the Voice Recorder is using a 32 bit signed long integer with an upper limit of 2GB for positive integer representations, causing a larger positive number, such as 4GB, to overflow into negative number representations. That is annoying. TkcVox does not complain about the 4GB card, so I am using tkcVox now to record voice audio.

I converted a movie called "Star Wreck" from *.m4v format to *.avi with a free program called MediaCoder, which is currently a front end to mencoder. The video codec is XVID. The audio codec is mad. I used the QuickTime presets to do the conversion. The resulting *.avi file can be viewed on my C760 with kino2 and mplayer on the Sharp ROM. After hours of experimenting with various encoding options, the smallest file is 315,667,794 bytes. Is anyone willing to host this file?

The space combat sequences of this film look professional. The film could be stripped of all dialogue and have these space combat sequences strung together, and it would essentially tell the same story.
