Sorry about yesterday's outage, the comment system is working again. Of course I discovered it was broken when I tried to update it from the Palm remotely, but I didn't have the tools to fix it. Jay said that there's an SSH for the Palm, so I went searching and found the Top Gun Palm Pilot tools

Installed it and tested it. Now that's just obscene. It doesn't let me log in as root for some reason (gives different error messages, and I'm able to ssh in as root from my Linux boxes), but this just opens up all sorts of possibilities. Now I've gotta try their web browser too, although that requires a proxy.

Curious. SSH has a flag to decide if you should be allowed to be root, but if you can do it from other places... and there's a fullfledged browser for the Pilot that doesn't require a proxy, but I forget what it's called... since *I* don't have a Minstrel. <pout>

After playing with it for longer, I'm not convinced that a proxy's actually a bad idea.

Those who've accidentally commented on a post twice know exactly where I'm coming from...
