I think that they are great for home use. If I could afford it, I would have one of these already.

I wouldn't trust them in a business environment though. Why risk getting fired?


My thoughts are mine and mine alone.
They did not originate with the voices in my head.
Do not listen to what they say, it's all lies.

    To me the Zaurus is not a business gadget just yet. The software has to be improved a lot, until I can say that. Improvements are under way, but I guess it'll take another year or so until the software (security and applications) is mature enough to be seriously used in business.

    At the moment the Zaurus is a geek's gadget, and every owner does what he thinks secures the Zaurus according to his needs.

    My decision was one between a notebook or the Zaurus for my personal use. Though with the Zaurus, I use the calendar for all my appointments.

    By the way - I had to change some passwords some days ago, because a paper notebook had been stolen out of a car.

[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah - we're in that situation too, except that there is no time to do the reorganizing :-/
[LanX]: ... so my boss started a project with the newest sun servers and invited the traders to come on weekend to test it... and they were so pleased, that they forced him to keep it in production...
[ambrus]: Corion: sure, this is the long-term plan. The short term is that I have to run this ungodly mess to get results from the new input data today.
[Corion]: ambrus: Most of our "automation" is tied to process exit codes and a shell pipeline :-\
[LanX]: ... a week later they realized that one of the databases - which recorded how much the other banks due to this bank - was not correctly plugged
[ambrus]: Corion: I have no problem with exit codes and shell pipeline. My problem is that the current process requires a lot of manual intervention from me, including editing the source codes.
[ambrus]: (Also a lot of manual intervention by two or three other co-workers, who do other parts of the process.)
[ambrus]: Some of the manual part is unavoidable, but not all.
[choroba]: LanX was there a way to recover the numbers from the remaining information?
[Corion]: LanX: Ow ;)
