Hi,

I live in central Mass near New Hampshire and work in Lexington.   I am interested in developing software for my SL-5500 Zaurus.

It\'s good to have another developer in our midst. We probably have enough Zaurus developers in the Boston area to form a rather powerful team!

New user digicatZ55, writing this as Guest, because I found this site while at my Grandparents house for Christmas   , (there  laptop  .   I have owned my Z for over a year or so, what is the best ROM for the Z5500??  Dislike the 3.10 because of the installer problems and would rather have Java and Hancom back in rom, but like the new 6.0 Browser.  Also anyone tried running DVarchive on there Whifi enabled Z to watch shows from there Replay TV (also on the network...  )  ????

A Boston ZUG? Nice...

I\'m a new Zaurus owner (two weeks), so I hope you all won\'t mind if I ask a bunch of questions in the future.  I\'m also a student out in beautiful Worcester, so if there\'s anyone else from out this way... hi

Another new Zaurus owner in Boston.  

Introduction. Delivery was delayed by the DNC. I'm new to PDAs but hardly new to Unix. (I used PWB and BSD3 ... and remember when SCO was a good company! Way back.) It's been years since I've been root@anywhere, until the SL6000 came along I was happy with that. (My Knoppix CD hasn't even been spun up; someday when I run out of projecgts.)  Since I'm a old unix hack, the Advanced File Manager and Terminal were early installs. Will eventually need to install much more of the Gnu commandset, how can I live without DIFF(1) or Perl. Sad to say, I've forgotten so much forth I had to resort to the manual to write Hello World.  

1st Project. Since I live and work on the subway, one of my first downloads was U-Bahn Navigator, but there wasn't a Boston map yet.  So I'm working on it. (With Greenline changes and Silverline, it will be a work in progress for a while!)

Now to get Perl working ... ipkg choked, I didn't read the detailed instructions first. Ahh well.  

I'd like to meet up with a few other Zaurus folks (do we call us Zaurans?) to try the I/R feature!

Newbie questions on WiFi . I've heard Newbury Street has lots of free WiFi. Any others? Useful lists on-line? (I've seen several but not sure which is useful.) What payWiFi+other-service combo plan is optimal here, T-Mobile, Verizon, ?? I've got a line on one I'll check out and report back.

Meetings Poll: So ... would folks prefer to meet at a restaurant, a food court, a bar, a public park, or a meeting room / class room? How many require free/cheap parking vs easy subway access?

Bill

I've since moved to Peabody, MA, and recently acquired an SL-C1000.  I anticipate closing on a new home up in Manchester, NH within the next month.  Still work in Wilmington.  Still wonder when and where the first user group meeting will be.

A couple of my friends (both SL-5500 owners) recently bought SL-C3000 models and are wanting to get together sometime for some advice on what to install and usage tips (I have an SL-C760, and have done application development for it and played around with an assortment of Zaurus software).  I could probably use that as an excuse to organize an actual user's group meeting if people are interested; how many people think they would show up for something in the Cambridge/Somerville area?  Also, what dates/times would be good, and do people have specific requests for what to do and discuss?  Relatively soon is better, my friends want to play with their new toys.
