There are (2-AA) chargers (GE, et al) that are small and slim like the LX adapter with folding prongs, and most important and convenient of all they shut off automatically especially for the MimH. These showed up in the local RS stores last December. Bought a pair then, and used 'em for about 6 months before going back to the RS hi-capacity NiCads. I actually got only about 70% of the time I had with the Nicads. (From the 1200 mAHr rating, I hoped for about 45-50% more). Hope you get better results than I had. 8-) Some battery types are better than others, or in the case of my NiMH batteries I interrupt the FAST charge and restart charging after six hours to get the maximum life...

The 200LX supports ATA flash and compact flash card with the drivers built into ROM. Those Intel cards are a different kind of flash memory. They use the Flash File System (FFS) type of interface and drivers. There is no native support for this in the 200LX. I think you can use the FFS cards with a special driver loaded into RAM.

Vim can do the windows (^w^n) and more! Of course, Vim's much bigger, which is probably why you choose xvi. I didn't like xvi for some reason - it was probably the `feel', and that I'd rather have just the two extremes of vim and calvin. Anyway, each to his own. xvi sounds really good! wonder why I didn't like it?

I could find no source that had them in stock. I called and emailed several software houses and the advice I got was always the same ... keep looking. I tried JORGE and didn't find it comprehensive enough for my needs. I am still on the waiting list at several used software shops and if I get a call about an available dictionary I will post it to the list. On a different track .... I downloaded the WINDI7 language dictionary from www.windi7.com. the DOS (smaller file size ... fewer words) version is free. As I found myself using it a lot I bought the full windows dictionary with all the bells and whistles. After setting it up on my desktop I found that the full sized windows dictionary files were exactly the same format as the free dos files but had many more words. I copied them to my HP and now have a 45,000 word dos based dictionary for translation on my palmtop. cheers Ron ** HPLX-L LIST Info at http://www.sp.uconn.edu/~mchem1/HPLX.shtml
