Emulator

  • From The Digest 30 Sep 2008:

From: Damian Walker
Subject: Re: Switch from Psion to eeepc (Linux)
… The EPOC "Emulator" works, after a fashion, in Linux under Wine's Windows emulation. I haven't found it 100% reliable but it's good enough to get the job done. There is one issue that springs to mind: don't let the thing "switch off" automatically. Under all Linux variants I've used it on, the emulator will minimize as intended, but then will refuse to "switch on" when maximised again. Minimizing it manually is no problem.

Connectivity

  • Mocha W32 PPP
    • Mocha W32 PPP can be used to connect your Psion [it can do this even though documentation often refers only to PalmPilot or Windows CE devices] to a Windows machine directly through a serial cable or the Hot-Sync adapter, giving direct access to the network (Internet) on your local PC.
  • TN5250, TN3270 and Telnet
    • "… makes it possible to connect to an AS/400 host with the TN5250 protocol and emulate an IBM-3179-2 terminal"

Utilities

  • Gedfried
    • Family tree program for the Psion 3a and 3c. The program is pretty basic: it reads but does not write the standard GEDCOM format, so the database has to be created with a family tree program on a desktop machine. The presentation on screen is textual only and the filesize is limited to 32k.
  • GenMVD
    • GenMVD (formerly called Geni) is a shareware genealogy program for the Psion 3a, 3c, 3mx and Siena. It is a fully-fledged genealogical database browser that allows users to carry large amounts of information in a small amount of space. The databases used by GenMVD are created from GEDCOM files by a program called Ged2Gen and are usually half the size of the original GEDCOM: 4000 individuals can fit into 300K.
  • Gen5
    • Genealogy shareware for Series 5. After registration, a family tree will store thousands of persons, 5 couples for each person and 24 children for a family.
  • Presentation Maker
    • Produce professional looking presentations from your Series 5/5mx. This solution provides for easy creation of overhead slide presentations. Use built-in templates or create your own. Import and export Microsoft PowerPoint presentations.

A set of 3 programs that toggle the respective settings: sound, remote link and backlight timer Freeware.
