Using a Treo 650 PDA with Debian on a Dell

My Treo 650 showing this very web page

I just got a brand new PDA-phone last Monday, a Tréo 650 running PalmOS.

I have been reluctant to cell phones for a long while, finding them rather invasive: when you own a cell phone, people expect to be able to reach you on it pretty much all the time and everywhere. At some point, the trade off between this cost and the advantage of being able to call some people all the time and everywhere tipped the balance, and I finally decided to get a cell phone for my personal usage.

New responsibilities

Filed under:

As of this month, my time allocation is moving from half-QA/half-Systems Team to half-Mobile Web Initiative (also known as MWI)/half-Systems Team.

While I have a certain sadness to leave the work on QA after having been involved in it for the past three years, it’s good to leave it with a set of very satisfying results: the Specification Guidelines were published as a W3C Recommendation a few weeks ago, the Working Group – while its charter is not going to be renewed – is on track to continue its most important work items through the Interest Group, after a truly excellent face-to-face meeting in Dublin; among them, work has started on formalizing the group experience on test case metadata which should hopefully be published as a note in the upcoming weeks.
