Sorry I have not blogged in a very long time, although I still do use my Zaurus occasionally. I am hoping that other Zaurus users, whether past or present, will find or be notified about this post and be glad to see that after being offline for about six months, OESF is back up and running, thanks to the efforts behind the scenes of offroadgeek as well as dz and Varti.
http://Elsix.org and http://www.oesf.org/forum seem to have gone down after March 3, 2016, when at least oesf was spidered by archive.org, and by the time archive.org’s spiders visited again in April 2016, the pages were yielding an “IP address not found” or “Permission denied” message. I discovered this shortly thereafter, and had been busy looking for ways to get in touch with others who might know what happened.

I just realized I never came back to say that within 36 hours of my discovery that http://sdjf.esmartdesign.com was down, it was back up and running, with all the broken feed links fixed and many applications migrated to the site which had been elsewhere.
And I became motivated to finish working on more pages there, although I have only published a couple more, about making images Zaurus friendly. If you are curious about all the mini tutorials there and here, check out the entries at
