NYCGB website

Last night I finished the NYCGB website (www.nycgb.net) and moved it from a hidden sub-directory of the site out into the open, to become the new and shining presence of NYC on the world wide web.

I now have to turn my attention to another major web project … can’t reveal too much right now, but will do in due course. Suffice to say that you won’t have to wait long, as this new site needs to be up by Thursday!

Psion Series 7

On Sunday I won a Psion Series 7 computer on eBay, for a cool £187, including postage and packing. This also included a leather case, and a Psion Gold Card (a multi-function card, including a 56k modem). Here it is, as illustrated on eBay.

Psion Series 7

I’ve spent the last couple of hours installing software on it, including a wonderful application called EPOCSync which allows me to synchronize my Series 5mx with my new Series 7 via IRDA (InfraRed)! Very many thanks to Bernard for that tip.

Also installed this evening were

  • PocketChess for EPOC (Freeware)
  • MahJongg v.1.21 (Registered) by Adrian Collister
  • Opera 5.14 for EPOC (Shareware)
  • psiMind (Freeware) — a mindmapper application
  • PDF+ (Registered) — for viewing PDF files, including the Series 7 manual
  • Street ’99 (Commercial) with the entire map of Edinburgh.
  • EPOC Text Editor, v.1.41 (049)

Still much to install (hoorah for Compact Flash cards!). I have a 256MB and a 64MB card.

I’ll write more about it later. Must get to bed now.
