I had noticed that some Brits are particularly active although Tumnus seems to have slackened off.  I was considering nominating Lardman for Greatest Living Englishman.

I just re-found my Sl-5500 after, probably, nearly a year without using it.  I\'ve been using a Sony NX70V for a while, I\'d forgotten how \"special\" the Z is

From Swansea, I\'ve been using *nix for about 15 years, but quite superficially, not much admin stuff.

Its a shame that a lot of the old links seem to be down.   I\'m really out of touch and no idea what the best ROM is right now...
I\'ve a lot of catching up to do!

Well not one of the more active posting sites.

Almost a year and still no answer to which pub

I vote for somthing up North, proper beer up here.

Currently I am going through withdrawl from my Palm as I convert to the C-860, so beer would help lots.

I\'m basied in Guildford (working in Mayfair, London) and am expecting my 5600 any day now!

I\'m a longtime Psion 5MX user and love the machines but am seriously bored now of the sync problems with any OS later than 95, not to mention Psion\'s insistence that there is no problem with Psiwin, or their useless screen ribbon cables..... so the 5600 warranted further investigation as it\'s a similar \"tweakers\" machine.

There are two of us in North Yorkshire I know of - York specifically, not beer drinkers though alas!

(BTW My Palm(Clie NX70V) withdrawal passed within 4 or 5 seconds of unwrapping my 5500. :-) I feel much better now LOL!  Now I too have a C860 and the other Yorker is planning on getting one too in the next few months.)
Left Linux and Linux PDAs... sorry, got boring.  Switched to Mac.

Hi all UK Zaurus Users,

I\'m another graduate from Psion, but only after my beautiful little revo packed up on me. Now I\'ve got a 750 but I\'ve only had it for a few hours so it\'s still charging up at the moment...

Btw, I\'m from Lancaster and feel that I should point out that today it\'s neither frozen nor remotely damp up here in the north!

Totalnoob,

Living in Lancaster or did you manage to escape the curse like I have.
I agree, it is a beautiful little city with lots more going for it than many other places.  It\'s a shame they closed our brewery though although George is trying to plug the gap with the micro in heysham.

Boy, does the weather suck.
Any other Geordie Z users out there?
