Lost and Found

How many of you have used CompuServe's software to access the HPHAND forum? How many of you have lost HPHAND when you installed version 4.0.x? How many emails have you sent to CompuServe only to be told that "the HPHAND forum is no longer on CompuServe"? How many of you, like me, have shouted "Nonsense!" at such a display of culpable ignorance?

In this issue you won't find such culpable ignorance about the HP Palmtop. Rather Steve Grotheer shows how to turn your Palmtop into a real PC Companion using Windows 3.1 or Windows NT 4.0 along with the latest versions of Kermit. Peniel Romanelli shows how the updated X-Finder program can make your Palmtop look and feel like Windows Explorer (File Manager). Dave Sargeant sheds some light on the problems of creating a backlight for the Palmtop. In the "Through the Looking Glass" column I discuss several of the hurdles that must be overcome to make Windows 3.0 work on the Palmtop. I could have asked the question "In a world without walls and fences, who needs windows or gates!" In the New Products column you'll discover that there is now a good use for the cc:Mail Remote on your Palmtop. Finally, Hal Goldstein ponders what might happen if or when HP stops producing the Palmtop. His recent experiences with the new crop of Win CE handhelds show that the Jornada series are attractively packaged downgrades for Palmtop users.

Finally, here's a way to find the "Lost" HPHAND forum on CompuServe. Start CompuServe 4.0.x in offline mode, click on the Assistance tab, and click the "Member Center" icon. Select the "View..." item from the menu and choose "Classic View". HPHAND will now be accessible. An even easier approach is to use your favorite Web browser and type in the URL http://forumsb.compuserve.com/vlforums/ default.asp?SRV=HPHand and connect to HPHAND. You won't even need WinCim! This interesting "back door" into HPHAND is from Mike Rafeld, a forum member.
