Selling a like-new SL-C3100 (perfect condition) with all original packaging, software, cables, etc. I bought this from Dynamism, and I believe there may be some warranty time left which I would transfer to you (assuming they allow xfer).

Asking $400 + shipping (from NY) which is not much more than the price of a C1000, except you get the 4GB microdrive.

Has the latest cacko on it, but will flash with whatever ROM you like, if you wish.

Also have a WCF11 wireless CF card and 1GB SD card available but only if you want to buy with the zaurus.

Just dropped the price down $50! Sorry guys, $400 is my rock bottom. smile.gif

The idea of using emacs, vi, or even lynx as an ebook (plaintext/html) reader annoys me. Has anyone found a reader program that will organize your books, give you permanent bookmarks by page or chapter, or do anything else that's useful for a reading program?

There has to be something good out there that will compile on a BSD and not use Java or KDE...

Help. smile.gif

On Saturday I was privileged to attend the NYCBSDCON, a day conference for BSD devs, enthusiasts, and vendors.

At the conference I encountered 3 other zaurus users. I met wormwood from here, and two other folks. Wormwood and I were running snapshots on a c3000 and c3100 respectively. The other two folks where running Opei on a c760 and sharp rom on a 5500.

The zaurus was a great conversation piece. I had plenty of folks asking me about the zaurus and oggling it. The best part is that I customized my fluxbox configuration (with wormwood's help) and read all kinds of man pages throughout the day which saved me from nodding off at inopportune moments.

There were great talks on CARP, DragonFlyBSD (presentation given on a windows laptop... ugh!), UFS, and more.

I don't really remember, but I'd say there were about 100 people there all together, but only 4 zaurus's tallied. =)

The base packages are in snapshots/zaurus, but the arm packages are in snapshots/packages/arm.

Are the arm packages compatible with zaurus + all other arm targets (I don't think there are any others)? Why not call it snapshots/packages/zaurus? A bit confusing... especially since I can't imagine binary packages targetted at one arm platform would work on another arm platform.

I'll wipe out my c3100 and install whatever you want, as long as you help me unbrick wink.gif

I only have OpenBSD on it at the moment, which I can always reinstall on a smaller partition (not using it for much besides learning OpenBSD because there are no binary packages available for 3.8 yet!).

I figure, this way I can try various ROMs and provide a community service. I don't generally hang out on IM, but you can PM me.
