Nice to see someone else in cyberland still comes by. What is interesting to me is the amount of looks some of the post I made the other day have received yet no one other then you has replyed. This use to be a site I would visit everyday, although I didn't participate much because there were so many knowlegable posters here at that time.

So Miradu, what PDA do you use now? Or do you still use one. Back then, when the site was active, I used a Palm Vx or Palm m505. Today I have about 5 differant models and use four quite regularly. They would be from least to most Handspring Visor Platinum, PalmM500, Sony Clie SJ-22, and Palm Tungsten T.

You should also try the DA Launcher and some of the da's that are out there as well as the hacks. Here is a site that shows many freeware palm apps with screenshots. I found several I had not even heard of but by seeing there screenshot was much more intrested in trying. http://members.shaw.ca/Jon_Aquino/F...creenshots.html

It appears that way right now. Maybe we can re-kick start this site.

I just recently discovered the visor deluxe and have been looking for modules and software for it. it seems to have alot of promise because there is still hware and sware available, and so are developer tools. also, it looks like the new OS 4.0 and 5.0 are backward compatable with the sware that i have on the device, so its an adaptable and powerfull platform that will migrate, along with all my work, onto a treo someday.
although i still don't know that for sure.

any suggestions on where to get more modules or sware?

thanx, mike

Cool modules

hi! modules(except storage) are now rare.
when you do find them they're expensive.
20 and up.
today i saw good prices on visor prisms, complete box sets and all on ebay.
let us know what you find.

hmmm.... so far so good. i got really lucky and scored "Palm Pilot: the ultimate guide" by david pogue.
i'm still having trouble though loading text into the device. that's the primary reason for having it, so i can read stuff like ebooks with it.
the device came loaded with Aportis and Memo Pad and Mobile DB and stuff, but i don't have the desktop equivalents of these programs.
i DL'd Palm Desktop, but the memo pad entries won't transfer from Palm Desktop to the visor.

hmmmmm.....

anybody know what Codewarrior is?

There is a free palm doc convertor for both windows and mac here http://lokisw.com/index.php?lang=en...almDocConverter down the page are links to free doc readers. If you want to spend some money you might look at Quickoffice or Documents To Go. As for the memos not transfering, you may want to check your conduit settings from within Palm Desktop to make sure they are set up to transfer your memos.

Keep us informed on how it's working out for you. There are usually differant ways to get the result you want.

Edit: I just noticed that that free doc convertor is just for the Mac. Here is a webpage though that list several doc convertors. http://www1.gantep.edu.tr/~sonercan/convert.htm

Thumbs up

WOW.....
that was the best link that i've clicked on in quite a while. (thanx a bunch ;-)not only did i find a whole ****load of free software and ematerial, there were also links and info for developing my own reader/conversion programs. forget memopad & aportis.

in fact, thanks to the links i've found here i am now in info overload, i've learned how to install and remove apps and docs onto my visor, but it will take several hours just to sort through all this stuff and figure out which are the best apps to install and use.

now that i have confirmation of just how powerfull and extendable this little thing really is, i can start loading and modding it into the device that will really do what i want. and it's CHEAP, too... :-))

two more questions please:

-what kind of sound capability does the V Deluxe have (and what sware is there that will demonstrate those sounds)?

-who knows of a pouch or holster with which to tote the device for someone who just wears t-shirts? (like the kind that holds my cell phone with a belt clip or something like that)?

As for the Belt Case. This is the one I've used now for about five years. In fact I think I might have to buy another one after looking it up. Anyway here is the URL where you can find it http://tinyurl.com/jah4n .

Since you liked my last link so well, here are some more that you might find interesting.

http://www.freewarepalm.com
http://www.palmopensource.com/
http://www.eurocool.com/
http://www.palmgear.com
http://www.handango.com
http://www.star-pilot.com/sp/index.html
http://www.ereader.com/
http://www.gutenberg.org/
http://www.memoware.com
http://www.pda-archives.com/pilot.shtml

This should tide you over for a bit until I can come up with some more. You'll be amazed how much you can STILL do with that Handspring.

well i got real lucky again and scored the perfect belt pouch. it holds the visor horizontally,which means that i can sit down and stand up and it won't push out of place. wore it all day.... perfect, except i had to slice off one of the belt loops from my jeans so that it would slide easily back and forth. there's already a missing one where the phone is.

the one @ http://tinyurl.com/jah4n
is very good too but it's vertical, which means it would pinch when i sit down.

yep, i'm gonna be busy for quite a while....thanx
