Re: Organiser II with Apple products

Hi,

I am a Mac user and have a solution for connecting up and transferring files to and from my LZ64 and my Mac, using one of the USB comms links from Le Powerful Pierre.

Will post details over the weekend.

Many thanks
Paul

Re: Most Powerful OPL Machine?

Hi

Just out of interest, why do you require such a fast machine?

Not being nosey, just really like to hear what other people are using their Psion machines for!

All the best

Re: Backlit Keyboard

Andrew, Yep, thats definitely the Psion Org 1 - the keys are distinctive! I also worry about the integrity of 3D printed items - I'm no expert and things may have moved on a lot since the days when I saw examples from the 3D printing process, but I guess they could at least be useful for testing, an...

Re: Backlit Keyboard

I agree with not modifying the original case if at all possible. As you say Andrew, these things are beginning to get a bit rarer these days! Perhaps knocking up a 3D model of an existing case and getting some 3d printed cases, including any modifications, would be the way to go. Seeing as most of t...

Re: Backlit Keyboard

Happy Christmas all! Just a thought.... If backlighting proves to be problematic, what about a couple of small led somewhere in the casing to the side of the keyboard? Not back lighting, but may be able to cast enough light to see the keyboard while typing? I have an old Lenovo x230 laptop that has ...

Re: Recreation of the Organiser II

Andrew, Progress on the Org2 recreation is amazing! Looking really great! A few questions. * can the display be inverted so it's more like the original - so black text on "white" background? * do you plan to make kits/complete machines available once it's finished? I'm sure you'd sell a fa...

Re: Recreation of the Organiser II

That is just incredible! There MUST be a market for these once finished. One of the biggest and best news stories for Psion Org 2 fans the world over. Cannot wait to see this when it's complete. So great to see it all still fits in the original case - for me at least, that's one thing that doesn't n...
