I love my old grayscale screens and the battery life that comes with and I snagged one of these for 40aud with no battery cover, what neat things can I do with this thing and what's the max CF card size it'll take happily?

Play some old WinCE games. Haven't played with mine in a bit, but I used it almost exclusively for Solitaire. I'm sure I had Pac-Man on it, too.

I've never tried a Compaq C140, but taking notes while reading a book is something I like to do with my Handheld PCs.

I think a friend of mine wrote a story with it.

Some friends and I do preservation/digging.

Came across this delightful page of some 1.x stuff! https://web.archive.org/web/20161230152341/http://velo.8k.com/

Nice version of Frotz for 1.0 as well (file is FrotzCE_130.zip) http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/interactive-fiction/infocom/interpreters... Originally located here https://web.archive.org/web/20030418002444/http://www.pyram-id.demon...

If you have a sync cable with it, CE 1.x devices make convenient serial terminals with Pocket Tera Term. I think vxHpc might run on CE 1.x as well, though I've never tried it.

I just bought a C140, very nice unit. It is a rebadged Casio Cassiopeia A-11 though. Nothing wrong with that though because I used to have a Casio Cassiopeia A-11 till 2001. I have a Casio Cassiopeia that it's touchscreen does not work. The C140 came with CE 1.0 and the A-11 had CE 2.0 in it. So I swapped modules and now my C140 has Windows CE 2.0 in it.

With PocketDOS you can enjoy a giant wealth of cool little programs, not only for nostalgic but also for pratical uses.
A CE-DOS machine just taking AA is so cool.
