Since I have too much time on my hands I decided to write a few apps and create a few tutorials for the Zaurus. I own a Sharp Zaurus SL-5000 with 32 mb ram. I also have an additional 32 mb SD card, a 16 mb CF card, and a Linksys Wireless Network card.
If you would like to reach me you can send me a PM (private message) or post a topic on the Zaurus forum at ZaurusZone .I usually check it daily.
