henley_regatta:

What about opie-checkbook? You can get the sharp rom version, which works well on Cacko 1.21b, from http://opie.handhelds.org/feed/stable/sharprom/

You need libopie1, and I think that's all.

Remember to switch off screen magnification ...

Mike,

Thanks for the recommendation. I wasn't aware of opie-checkbook.

Having tried it, I'm reasonably sure you've never used Handheld's Money on the Psion  

It's a fairly minimal application, although it does do Exactly What It Says On the Tin. And it's better than nothing; I've already accepted that I'll not be living with my accounts on the Zaurus itself and I've migrated to GnuCash on my home box. opie-checkbook might be "just enough" finances management to cover me when I'm out and about.

And since it produces text output files, I'm in with a fighting chance of writing something that can translate between Opie-Checkbook and Gnucash for sync. That's much closer to my programming experience than writing GUI apps from scratch, anyway!

I used to use Psions - the first one was an XP I think (calculator-style, 2-line by 16-character display, 32k RAM!) in the late 80s.  I then graduated to an LZ64 (4-line by 24 character, 64k RAM) and used the XP to do things like control a large map display full of LEDs.

Then it was a 3a, which had at least one new display cable and was then pronounced a writeoff because of a corroding PCB.  Then a 5, which is ever so clever but really a bit too fragile, and has a very poor display.

And then two Palm Vxs (lost the first when I was mugged).

And now a C860, with pdaXrom.  Hmmm!

Hi all!
I have had an SL-5500 for a while now, running OZ. I am a computer/linux geek, and was very happy to find that there was a linux pda out there. I nearly bought a palm! I am teaching myself c++ (amongst other things) and hope to expand this to Z development ASAP.

I live in Tavistock, Devon! Is EVERYONE else up north??? I would love to go to a zug meeting, but I don't have a car, and won't be able to get one for a few years yet, so the furthest I could get myself is Exeter (and that's pushing it- especially as the driver will have nothing to do during the meeting).

Maybe I could go to a meeting near Manchester... that would have to be VERY well timed, so I doubt it.

Apex tickets on the train are surprisingly cheap, as are National Express tickets.  Public transport does exist, you know

Thought I'd introduce myself after reading this forum for nearly 2 years!

Ian, aged 38, living in Lancaster (seems to be a minor hotbed for Zaurus users), working nr Warrington.

Own a C750 with original Sharp ROM, converted to English. Main reason for sticking with the Sharp ROM is that I'm learning Japanese, though very slowly.

The Z is my working PDA, so I'm not too experimental with it. Love the zautrix PIM stuff. Also looking for a decent GPS solution. qpegps is nice but a bit limited and not being developed very actively. This has led me on to X/Qt - got an old familiar version of gpsdrive running okay but the newer version required so many new libraries that I gave up. Now I'm trying X/Qt & debian with the latest gpsdrive & encountering a few problems with portrait mode. Oh well ...

That makes three of us in the Lancaster area.  I think a pint is called for.  Unfortunately I can only do Saturday lunchtimes.

Well I'm up for a pint of something, though I don't like beer (no, I'm not originally from the south). Any other interest from fellow Lancastrians, Prestonians or Cumbrians?

Though the thought of a bunch of people sat round a pub table with associated Zaurii strikes me as a bit bizarre.

UK user here, from Nottingham.  Good to see you all.  

I've got a C1000, it works pretty well although my sitecom CF wireless card doesn't work, which is quite annoying.  Does anyone know where to get a better CF wifi card, preferably for not too much cash...

Only just noticed this thread. I'm from Bournemouth but work in Harlow. Soon moving to Redhill (London) (I hope).
