ZBoxZ is at SourceForge
formerly known as (Palm)Boxerk
Many Files here are on my Sourceforge site as downloadable PQAs.
Uses SysZLib.prc, which is an updated ZLib for PalmOS, for more info on that see the PalmZLib Homepage
The updated player is there as playmidi45a.zip
Also, UnPQA - decompresses PQAs back into HTML.
For Linux with Source.
Concorde (KJV Bible reader - 1.2M to fit on a Palm III) is at
OpenPGP is at www.cryptography.org - in the PGP section. I will be revising it to fix key management shortly, but the current version with source is already there (particularly I want to be able to do keysigning via IrDA).
I just got a Rand McNally StreetFinder GPS. StreetFinder is good, but bloatware but the GPS (apparently made by Magellan) is great and works with QuoVadis.
Well, I wrote my own GPS opensource program. Alpha, and covered by the Gnu Public License (see www.gnu.org for redistribution and modification terms). tzgps.zip
Pilot Link Fixes
Better rom support (clears bit), also sets bits right for pqas. Fixes a problem with compiling shared libs under SUSE linux.
LINUX: G200SVGT.patch updates SVGATextMode to work on the Matrox G200. (It should leave Mystique supported, and also work in the G100).
MGAGx00.diff updates G00 cards - (400 w/ID 0x525).
NEW! Turn the numeric graffiti area into a mini-keypad with keypadhk! Get keypadhk.zip. Released under the GNU public license (see www.gnu.org for the full text) with a further restriction that this cannot be distributed with any hardware or accessory without permission.
0.5 should work with middle caps hack and includes a better configuration screen, as well as other internal improvements.
KNOWN BUG: Numbers in shortcuts aren't recognized, so any shortcuts that use numbers need to be changed. (I don't know if I can fix this because I think Graffiti looks at this "inside" - so even entering letters with the popup keyboard dialog doesn't work).
(the full numeric/keypad dialog popup still functions)

Unstreak/Turbo for Palm IIIx or Palm V (or any other EZ processor):
With no unstreak, and optimized (smaller) - install and reset.
nowaitz.zip is also here. It reduces the wait states on the flash and ram to zero, and also adjusts the contrast like StreakHack, but this is NOT a hack. It automatically starts upon reset, or by tapping the icon. If your Palm crashes, you will need to hold the up scroll key to prevent the program from setting turbo mode out of reset so you can delete it. Also, if a program goes into greyscale, it won't restore the contrast (unlike StreakHack), so you will have to tap the icon yourself. Please report any successes or failures to firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: It only runs once after being tapped or out of reset. It changes registers which should stay changed until the next reset, so it doesn't "run" like the other clock based hacks.
Includes source to the conversion tools
For the builtin speaker (lame, so don't blame me).
To convert a multitrack midi file to single track:

A better description of the play-only interface with Radio Shack part numbers (Thanks to Pete Moss):
I haven't tested this, but a mac user provided this stuffit archive with a port of my conversion utility:
Converter for PCs
doodhack.zip Grabs screen to doodle pad when calc is hit (with source).
txtbmp.tgz Convert bitmaps to ascii and vice versa (with icon templates). UPDATED bmptotxt to handle compressed bitmaps.
