Re: Yay! I got a Zeos Pocket PC. But Oh no! How to transfer files?

Nah that's actually a Flash card - which simply won't work (at least i never managed to get them to work). The only PCMCIA cards i ever got to work in a tidalwave are SRAM cards. The biggest SRAM card i have is 4 MB and it's not even compatible with all palmtops, so realistically you'd get something...

Re: Yay! I got a Zeos Pocket PC. But Oh no! How to transfer files?

On the ZEOS and generally all tidalwave clones I haven't been able to get Flash working at all. There are several problems: - PCMCIA 1.0 Type I slots. That means 3.3 mm cards only while most flash cards are Type II (5 mm). - No flash drivers/File system Maybe with some combination of drivers/Filesys...

Re: Your favorite vintage non-palmtop computer?

Ha, you could run Windows XP on that! Still nice machine. I always liked the old Voodoo cards. Back in the days these were pretty much what I'd dream about at night. The Soundblaster AWE 64 was also kinda the last of its kind - back then you'd get a real sound card and not rely on a chip on your mot...

CGA Video player source code

Well this one looks quite impressive on a DOS palmtop - full screen video. Back in the mid 90s even the "big" CD-ROM games usually only had a small video somewhere in the center of the screen as even 486 were fighting hard to get the video to play smoothly. So what's the trick to play back full scre...

XPCGA prank app source code

This is an old prank app... Maybe you have seen the Youtube video about it before... Just made this to fool a friend. It simulates loading Windows XP. Originally made for my HP 100LX, but will run on all CGA DOS Palmtops. http://www.tankraider.com/userup/1521059718.zip This is the source code. You w...

Hehe, so what were the remaining 0.5%? Yeah collecting old computers doesn't have much to do about "usefulness" - more about passion... But i still use my HP 200LX nearly every day. Love it since it fits into my jacket pocket. I still do all my accounting calculations with the included "Pocket Quick...

Yeah love my family, but you don't have much time for other hobbies... :D I bought the Sony UX in bulk. I knew i could sell them for a good profit, so i bought a box with 10 of them. The Wibrain... yeah i understand people calling it "ugly". But maybe it's also a bit charming to be "Ugly" and have k...

Re: Sharp PC-3000

Yeah the HP 100LX/200LX in combination with an SRAM card are a real life saver in this case.

Thanks for the tip with the low power mode, i should somehow add that to my 3000/3100 articles.
