Cricket For Sale
« on: June 02, 2005, 04:41:09 pm »
- Since I have a shiny new C-1000, I don't seem to use the old Z any more.  Poor thing's getting depressed!  So I'd like to sell it to a good home, where it can be happy and useful once again.  This has:

- A Zaurus SL-5500 with the stock Sharp ROM v3.1.  This has some wear that the flip cover put on the case around the screen, and some on the back cover, but otherwise it's in superb condition.
- A Panasonic 64MB SD card.  The installed software does not fit into the unit without some external storage.  Since it's unusable, imho, without the software, the SD comes with it so you'll have something more functional.
- theKompany addressbook, calendar, and paint.  These aren't installed, but I don't use them and never intend to use them, so the rights to them will come with this unit.
- A spare battery and external battery charger.  The SL-5500 does not reboot when you change batteries, so this allows you to carry spare juice around where-ever you go.  Just pop the other one into the external charger and you're never slave to the wall wart.
- Charger, cradle, cables, manuals, etc that shipped with it originally.  I am the original owner, and it will arrive in the original box, with the original packing.
- Installed software:

KO/PI 2.1.1 and KA/PI 2.1.1 for agenda/address management
zSafe for password management
neoCal 1.4.4; an RPN multi-purpose calculator
Advanced Text Editor; better than the text editor it came with
qpeAlarmcock; for alarms, which were strangely missing
subapplet; moves lower-right icons off the main bar into a sub-bar.  VERY nice.
qpdf; the standard for Z pdf reading
kpacman; took forever to get this Opie app to work, but it does.
konsole; Not as good as QKonsole, but far superior to Terminal.
memoryapplet; Manage swap file from an applet icon, quick and easy.
rotation; rotate Z screen - not on-the-fly, but the next app launched.
sysinfo; Opie's better sysinfo utility
plus lots and lots of other stuff, some of which came with the unit, and some that I found.
- The reason this doesn't work without the SD is a lot of this stuff has been moved to the SD card and symlinked to the original locations.  That was the only way to fit all the software on it and still have enough left for a swap file (the only way to make a 5500 run properly) and a few megs free for whatever.  There's about 26MB of stuff installed to the SD, primarily Hancomm apps, games, and some support libraries.
- The BlueZ install files are on the SD but they aren't installed.  Put them there while I was troubleshooting BT on the C1000, and they're still on there.

- I'm thinking $175, shipping included.  What do you think?

I'm thinking....

"Where were you last week?!?" I just bought a new(used) 5500 off ebay to replace my stolen one. Paid $200 for the Z + wifi and 128MB CF.

 
SL 5500 Cacko 3.10 ROM 64-0, Symbol Wifi
storage on 256MB Lexar High Speed SD card
64MB/32MB CF cards for removable storage.

Doing my part to keep the 5500 platform alive

Pardon my ignorance, but I'm guessing that means it is already sold?

If so, thanks.

- Sorry, circlip.  I were out o' town for a week or so, and didn't realize it had been so *long* since I checked in here!  I still have it, and pictures, if'n I can get them to upload.  Not much success at that so far.  (wry grin)
- I'll check back daily until Friday, June 24.  If there's no response by then I'll just toss the poor guy onto eBay and come what may...

- I'm negotiating to sell just the external battery charger, so Cricket won't appear on eBay until that's settled.  To speed things up, because I'm not the best at checking in here at OESF, feel free to contact me directly: n0body (that's n<zero>body) @comcast.net...
