Hi all,

many apps that have a menu and some icons / tabs on top take 1/3 to almost half of the screen height for those elements, leaving only the lower 2/3 or half of the screen for real work (example: Metal app for displaying Facebook content).

Also, in many other apps there are icon bars that are way too large compared to the actual working space in the GUI of those apps (example: Aqua Mail when displaying the list of E-Mails).

Is there a way to reduce the height of such GUI elements to make such apps use the screen real estate in a better way?

Hi guys,

when starting the Facebook app on my new Gemini, I only get a white app window with a Facebook logo icon at the top. Nothing else. No login entry fields whatsoever.
Does anyone have an idea what's wrong there?

I tried deleting the app's data and restarting the app, to no avail.

I have one Zaurus device here which is a bit special:

It is an SL-C3000, which has a Bluetooth module built-in, connected internally to the USB port, so the USB port is non-functional for other connections, but the machine has Bluetooth functionality. From the outside, this modification is not visible (well, right now there are some wires leading to the outside to a hardware switch to enable / disable the module, but I could cut the wires and switch, it doesn't work to enable the USB port for other connections anyway).

This SL-C3000 resides in the case of an SL-C3200 (the silver shell, instead of white).

Currently, the device has pdaXii13 installed.

It is in very good condition.

Anyone interested?
Please make a reasonable offer (PM)

I would expect something like 300 Euro for it. Plus shipping from Germany.

Hi guys,

I'm selling an SL-C3200 in very good condition (only few signs of usage).
It has had a screen protector from day 1.
It comes with the usual accessories, has the CE certificate (for EU - it has been bought from Trisoft IIRC), plus some extras, see picture:
- an original Sharp EA-70s AC adapter (on request I can exchange it for an US ro Japanese adapter)
- an additional European AC adapter, smaller and lighter than the original
- a small mouse
- a spare stylus

USB client and host cables, as well as unused ear phones, and the three CD-ROMs are included.
The Zaurus comes with Trisoft's ROM preinstalled (sorry, pictures show weeXpc instead, but that's not preinstalled!).
Asking 350 Euro for the package.

Also, I am selling a CF Bluetooth card made by Socket.
I think it's Rev.E (according to the label, see pictures).
It does not stick out of the Zaurus when inserted, so it is very convenient to always leave it in the slot.
It works flawlessly with pdaXrom, weeXpc, and AFAIK also OpenZaurus / Angstrom. Not sure about Sharp and Cacko ROM. But you can find info about compatibility in this forum.

I am asking 23 Euro for the card.

Last but not least I decided to part with my IODATA CFXGA card.
This is a quite rare card for VGA output. There are programs to mirror the Zaurus' screen on an external monitor or projector, and the "Presenter" application coming with Sharp / Cacko ROM has a direct way of controlling the card, so you can use the remote control to switch between slides. Very convenient. The "Presenter" application is stable, but I had problems using the screen mirroring software.

This card was expensive. I think I paid 150 or 200 Euro for it. It has not been used often. I will let it go for 120 Euro now.

If someone wants to buy all three items at once, the Bluetooth CF card is free.

I may put the items on ebay soon if noone buys them here.

Shipping costs are additional. I can ship worldwide, but please consider the additional insurance, import tax and customs costs.
Shipping within Germany is 4,00 Euro (Hermes).
Shipping within EU is 15,00 Euro (Hermes).
For other shipping fees please ask.

what is the easiest and safest way to migrate KA/PI address book data to Outlook 2003?

I have tried CSV export from KA/PI, heavily modified the resulting file in a text editor removing newlines from notes etc., then imported into Excel, saved as Excel sheet, then tried to import the Excel file into Outlook. The last step crashes Outlook!

When I export another CSV from Excel and try to import the CSV into Outlook, the fields are not recognized. All data is redognized to be in the first column (as if one opens a CSV file in Excel via the "file open" menu instead of "Data / Import"...

Is there another way?

I have 450 contacts in my database and have used a lot of the more common fields (home/work addres/phone, company/role information, birthday etc.

Is synchronizing via Sharp DTM safe (i.e. can I be sure that no data is lost or assigned to Outlook fields in a wrong way)? unsure.gif

Thanks a lot
