This is the point where it will probably look the best for awhile. Next up: drilling holes and screwing parts in place…

If anyone is looking to buy Palm stuff, I bought my m500 and accessories from www.palmdr.com and can highly recommend them. Everything I got was in pristine condition. The m500 came with the battery replaced, and the screen looked brand new (not a single scratch or anything).

Definitely a bit more expensive than most eBay listings, but still pretty cheap, definitely worth it for the guaranteed quality. Looks like everything also comes with a 3 month warranty.

The Cowboy Bebop live action remake prompted me to rewatch the 1998 anime original and, a couple of things:

I remembered it was gorgeous but not quite HOW gorgeous it was. Especially with the Blu-Ray edition, this show is beautiful to look at.

It's holding up great. There's no reason to remake it except to fall in line with the whole 16:9 aspect ratio shenanigans and even then the 4:3 ratio only helps the odd mix of "old timey" / science fiction vibe that's all over this thing. :clockworkheart:

I think the real reason they're doing it in live action is because Disney is doing it with their own stuff and making bank. 🤷‍♀️

The key thing for me was making appropriate workflows in how I use the I do a lot of typing on the go and in cafes for personal journaling and phosts, so the hardware keyboard was indespensable and also the crowdfunding discount for the wifi version was on point.

I use mine mostly as a portable hand terminal/Linux desktop(Debian and kali via UserLAnd. termux is used as well) No Google login and the few apps I use are via f-droid or sideloaded. At home I use a full sized keyboard, mouse, ethernet, and monitor for full desktop experience. Personal Info Management (PIM) is via local nextcloud server/Davx5 and syncthing (mostly for vimwiki and files that don't play well with nextcloud. Also use TrackerControl to manage app traffic.

@dctrud_ Really? Man, I should dust off the Ultra10 and see if I can get it running again. What box is that, BTW?

@mathiasx @kelbot
Yes, you are correct! That is a Gemini, which I still use daily.

@zudn @kelbot
Nice thing with the Dana is that I can plug it into a Raspberry Pi or other computer and use it as a keyboard while it charges via the USB port.

@Gemlog

Sorry, gemlog, I'm not familiar with that phrase. My tagalog is really poor, but I'd like to find out as well!
