Current use of Gemini?
« on: March 26, 2024, 04:42:07 pm »
Hi, everybody!

Still have my Gemini. Still mint, still works perfectly. Just got it out, fired it up. Single boot to Debian. Everything is of course outdated, with no hope of easy upgrade. I may try to get Proton VPN running on it, using the old OpenVPN recipe.

Thought I would check and see if anyone has come up with new and imaginative use for the Gemini. I kind of like the little guy (except for the carefully sharpened hinge ends) and would like to put it to use. If cellular had ever been made to work reliably I'd spring a few bucks a month for Mint Mobile or something for it.

Anybody cook up anything interesting for the Gemini?
dep

Atari Portfolio (yes, it still works and yes, I bought it new)
Libretto 110 CT (with docking station and all kinds of PCMCIA stuff)
And, now, a Gemini and, fortunately, a GPD Pocket

I just got exagear working on Gemian. Dunno if x-86 apps are of interest to you, but Word 97 (my all-time favorite wp) runs swimmingly on Gemian once past
97's slow start. exagear is now licensed abandonware, but the wget patch makes it run without problem: https://github.com/ryanfortner/exagear-rpi

Let me know if this is something you want because sources.list in the exagear container needs some tinkering.
