Basically, there's no problem. I figured out how to reset the card swipe box's power and get it to "authorize" the washing machines. But I see on the outside that there's an IR port, so I'm very very interested in what it does. Perhaps it would enable me to reset the power without having to open up the box and look really sketchy.


Ya sure it's not a camera?

What would you guys do with a working Palm Pilot that can't get online but still has a neat color screen?



You _can_ get it online via a SLIP/PPP connection via serial or IR.... I'm playing with mind to see if I can use it as a secondary display for a MythTV box. I'd like to display menus etc on it so that I can drive Myth without having to have the main display (large DLP screen) on for things like MP3 and Streaming audio.

There is a VNC client (http://palmvnc2.free.fr/download.php) and using x11vnc you can do server side scaling.

Cheers,
Munge.

PS. There are a couple of hacks to ensure that the Palm starts the appropriate app when started.
