QNext
So I'm giving QNext a shot, as it sounds like pretty decent IM software, but I'm encountering some odd problems using it.

The program starts up fine but when I try to log in as root or as myself I get the following lines of error text:

Permission Denied: (java.util.PropertyPermission os.name read) --> os.name
java.lang.SecurityException: Permission Denied: (java.util.PropertyPermission os.name read) [os.name]

It looks like I'm online, but I suspect I am not. I can't locate anyone else out there or find anyone to IM or really do much of anyhting. Looks like It's just not connecting with a server of some sort.

Keyboard Thoughts
Linux Keyboard

Cherry is apparently getting ready to release a linux keyboard.

My first thought. Why? It's not like there aren't plenty of mice keyboards that are supperior to this and cost about the same (the Kennsington Wireless keyboard and recargeable mouse combo springs to mind).

On the other hand, i can't say that I don't have happy thoughts about a keyboard with tux on it rather than a windows icon or an apple. It makes me warm in the way a lot of needless technology does.

The programable keys sound cool, but all keyboards do that already. This looks like it might have more programable keys than your average keyboard, which is nice since many apps already have functions for the function keys.

Palm Woes.
I'm getting consistently disappointed by lack of availability for Palm OS software/conduits for Linux. I have Jpilot working 10 times better than Palm Desktop ever did. I have plucker, which works fine, but freezes after every successful sync. More importantly, I have to manually time a hotsync while Plucker is running to within 6 seconds. Workable, but less than cool. But I have not been able to find things like Documents To Go, desktop version of SplashID, and any kind of an email-via-hotsync apps that'll work for Linux. I may be wrong here, but I seriously doubt these apps will work even through Wine - but feel free to correct me if my guess is wrong. But more importantly... does anyone know some sort of a repository of apps for Linux/Palm users?

Current Mood: disappointed
