This is the second test entering text into a web form and trying to upload it. I was just trying to do it and it seemed to crash on me. I think the battery just came a little loose but I am not sure.
ANYWAY...I was giving a run down of what has worked so far. (karma biting me in the rear again)
The many steps to this point:
1. Getting the Clio1050.
---provided by my soon to be father in-law and I am most grateful. After I had looked on ebay for months and the prices were just a bit too much out of my range.
2. Getting the Network Card and Having it Work.
---After trying several different common network cards and having the Clio reject everyone of them, mostly unspectacularly, I found references to the Clio online. It seems there are a limited number of cards that will work on it, so I tried to find a wireless card the the Clio already had built in drivers for.
---Ebay again, and through my father found a $200-something card and won a bid at about $50. The card then promptly took forever to arrive, and it arrived about 3 weeks later. The card looks funky and the Clio did react to it, but mostly by not working.
---So upon visiting my soon to be father in-law, I mentioned my travails, and he promptly said "Oh my network card just WORKED on it, no problem." I asked if I could use it and after some digging the card was found and a little more fiddling with the installation CD created a working wireless networked Clio, and a happy me.
2.5 The rest will be continued if this uploads properly.
2.6 It uploaded correctly and I will continue this later.
2.7 So after the card started to work I still had some work to do.
---BTW, the wireless network card I am using is a Lucent Technologies WaveLan card. This is a very old card relatively speaking and that is the likely reason they had WinCE/HPC-Pro drivers that would work for the Clio.
3 Using The Wireless Connection for the Betterment of Me.
---So now that I have this powerful portable, wireless computing device what shall I do with it? Well what you are reading right now is a good example of the desired usage. I mainly want to use this as a portable typewriter, writ 21st century. Basicallly I want to be able to write whatever, whenever, on a nice keyboard and not have to lug around a huge behemouth of a machine. I also want to be able to remotely control computers at work and at home. The first desire has been fulfilled, the second I am still working on.
4. The Portable Uploading Typewriter
---So in order to use this as a portable means of writing to a single or multiple sites I needed to setup an account I could access from a lot of places. Starbucks and T-mobile happen to fit that bill. And, might I add it is a considerable bill, when you consider the standard large, aka Venti, drink I get at starbucks, and the 30 something dollars a month for the yearly unlimited plan at t-mobile. So, anyway, I signed my money off to T-mobile but couldn't do so on the Clio itself. Something about the way their site handles the login process. The Clio can use the T-mobile site and log in, but it cannot be used for signi ng up or putting in the finacial information.
