A Z rocks even more when you go on holiday, your wife frowns as you mutter something about taking a laptop computer! Even better, when you discover on holiday someone nearby is running an open wireless acccess point and you get free internet access*.

Oh yes

Now if I can get this bluetooth card working I will be able to hook it up to my phone and reboot my servers from the pub,   which is the object of the exercise


After that I need to get my GPS working...

Allo, new user here. I'm another one from down south, West Sussex to be roughly exact, & am currently tinkering with a 5500.
Hardware: 'well-used' SL-5500; 1GB SD-Card; 128MB CF card
ROM: OZ GPE (Wanted to use OPIE but it locks up on suspend, X seems to fix it somehow. Found GPE more powerful than it first looked, if a little flakey.)
Considering: Putting together a ROM oriented towards scripting. Will probably be OZ based with X11.

I am living in Sunny Swindon.

This is my second attempt at using an SL5500 as my main PDA. I miss being able to easily hotsync with Solaris (work) and Linux (home) like I could with my Visor Pro.

There are compensations however - like using vpnc to connect to my company's Cisco Concentrator to check email when travelling...

Ah, that is very interesting. I came across the vpnc yesterday and I wondered if it would work with my employer's cisco vpn concentrator... I will definitely have a play with that!

Live in Northwich, hail from Sheffield.  Relatively new to the forums, but I'm on my 4th Zaurus - a shiny new 3100, after owning and selling 5500, 6000 & C860.

Still don't know how to use it though....

that's no problem, send it to me, I'll learn how to use it for you and bring it back in say 6 months and show you how.
