So I finally went and bought a 360LX but I'll be honest, I don't have much use for it. The software that's available in the SCL seems to be mostly games.

Typing outside with a 360LX via Pocket Word is useful to some degree but I'm just not sure what other programs are out there for it.

I filtered for it in the SCL and only saw games, though I did not browse through every single sub-category.

Unfortunately we have a fair amount of missing compatibility data in the SCL. We need the community to feed back and help us update its accuracy via the SCL UI and requests like https://www.hpcfactor.com/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=18655&po...

TextMaker 2002 will run on CE 2.00, which give a better word processing experience. You can forget about World Wide Web use on CE 2, but there are network tools like vxUtil and terminal clients if you are a network engineer that are useful. It depends what your interest are really.

As for surfing, both cnn and npr have text-only sites, which will effectively render the news on CE 2.0's (though cnn is more shrill than news these days).

My everlasting regret about CE 2.0 is the absence of a decent rss reader. Egress for PPC runs relatively well on HPC2000, but I never found anything rss for CE 2.0.

The main problem with getting RSS is that prior to 3.0, there was no MSXML implementation for CE. In practice, this means that in order to parse RSS, you have to write your own XML parser - how comprehensive that is being up to you. For crazy people like me, that's a challenge. For most devs that is the 5th layer of hell as you are working from virtually bare metal API with no framework.

Just bought a 360LX off of 'Fleabay', don't know why... maybe it's the Covid-19 isolation... or maybe it's the bourbon.

My 360LX didn't come with bourbon. (Good thing I don't drink. 'Course, I'm plenty obnoxious sober. )

Well, you can play my little .net Tic Tac Toe game on it: https://www.hpcfactor.com/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=18761&po...

If you like writing code, hopefully this can also serve as inspiration for you to write your own software for the 360lx

Thanks, I may give it a try when the 360lx comes in - I'll leave the programming to you guys - I'm just a 'dabbler.'

ntware, do you know what the XML parser's competency is like in the .net port?

That’s a good question C:Amie. I haven’t played much with the .net (micro) compact framework components besides what was needed for my little Tic Tac Toe clone. But judging by the fact that the framework lacks a simple ImageButton component (my game uses a library that builds the component from scratch) I would say that XML parsing might be minimal to non existent. However, not all is lost. There are millions of portable C/C++ XML parser libraries out there. In fact, 5 seconds on Google brought me this: https://pugixml.org/ which looks very promising. I bet it is dead simple to import this library on a project and start using it to parse plain XML files.

Fancy having a go at making a H/PC universal RSS aggregator? Other than web browser, it's probably the most requested.

That's an interesting project. I'll try to come up with something when I have some free time. I never used RSS much, so I think I will have to learn how it works first. My guess is that the XML parsing won't be the hardest part of it. Probably the issue will be on handling the encrypted channel (https, TLS, etc).
