oo, scary-scary. i bought an acer tablet c100 to replace my worn-out but functional sony vaio.

hammered the keyboard so hard it was stripped of lettering.

am following some of the things recommended by the two reports on tuxmobile.org and having a hard time dealing with the things that aren't mentioned.

subtle hacking of debian linux packages and the like (installing wireless-tools after patching the Makefile to report "version 14")

avoiding the use of grub because it fails miserably.

it's fascinating and very scary.

i believe the machine actually has _two_ pcmcia chips, one for "real" cards and one specifically for an internal pcmcia card - the wireless card. if that's the case, the pcmcia-cs guys are going to LOVE it.

i have bluetooth, it works, although the docs are very obtuse.

by reading about four separate documents from different people, the correct procedure "clicked" into my tepid brain and it worked thereafter.

i was slightly ahead of the game in that i had previously submitted a successfully-implemented bug-report to ppp-config which now allows blank username and blank password to work with pppd files, and have been using a pl2303 usb->serial converter for several months.

fun fun fun in the sun sun sun...
