Ask Slashdot: Where Can I Find Resources On Programming For Palm OS 5?

robinsc Re:Be ready for a lot of frustration (170 comments)

Also the UI was really good for getting things done quickly....
it was an organizer first and foremost which today's multi-functional devices are not and hence they always suffer for some form of identity crisis.

Canadian Hotel Sues Guest For $95K Over Bad Review, Bed Bugs

robinsc Re:Free speech (432 comments)

Bed bugs are more a problem in wooden /plaster houses rather than cement concrete houses. In india all our haouses are cement/brick/concrete with paint and no carpets/linoleum so bedbugs are not so difficult to eliminate. My guess is that bedbugs in the us are a much bigger deal becuase of the way houses are constructed.

Sci-Fi Books For Pre-Teens?

robinsc Re:A few very basic suggestions (1419 comments)

Tom swift - a name from my childhood . thre were at least three different series by this name probably by people writing under the pseudonyms of victor applegate I , II and III
the three series are set quite a while apart in time too . the first is more hand cranked cars which the last is all silicon computers and man -robot prosthetics...

Pre teen sci fi I personally like a series of books of which I remember the title of one as Crisis on Conshelf ten and earth dark by monica huges... pretty good sci fi , social statements and not too heavy.
