Zaurus Website For Sharp Rom Users
« on: October 10, 2011, 12:53:32 pm »
I have not posted in a long time, so many forum members may not know I have a Zaurus website that is geared mostly towards newbies but I hope  has a lot of handy stuff for old timers still using Sharp ROMs on the Collie or Tosa.  It includes links to software I recommend.  And most of the command line stuff and tutorials have information of use to folks using other ROMs as well because it still is basic Linux.

Thanks
Enjoyed reading/skimming through the site, and have bookmarked it.
Am still using a sl-5500 myself, occasionally though.

Thanks, Neill.  I am glad to get feedback.

I figure that even if our Collies are out of date, they still are useful, and I think a lot of what I have written should be useful to people using other models as well.  Everything works on my Tosa, and a lot of the pages I have up are about command line stuff using bash, and that is pretty standard, of use to anyone wanting some ideas or down to earth instructions for using the command line and writing simple scripts.

If anyone finds something not working or unclear, please let me know, the whole point of the site is to be helpful.
