I had spent some time several years ago trying to get Linux running on this machine via the (defunct) JLime project, so I had some of the pieces available to actually get this little “pocket computer” going again – mainly compatible CompactFlash cards and an external card reader. But I was mostly joking.
Then I starting thinking how funny it would be to actually sit in a talk and take notes at DEF CON on an ancient “laptop”…
These things are a thing of beauty.
I was really hoping it would be cooler, like a compaq portable. http://oldcomputers.net/compaqi.html That would be legendary, for the feat itself ( including building a battery pack big enough, as well as being able to hold it on your lap).
Or failing that impossible dream, something like my old grid compass that might still be in my parent’s basement or not depending on what they did with it.
