One thing that always accompany me is my PDA. It’s an Ipaq RX3715 PDA. It has been accompanied me for 1 year plus. I bought the PDA from other person for $350 through HardwareZone.com. So far it has served me well. Hopefully it will continue to do so.

One of the recent activities that I take interest on is reading classic literatures. I found out that this habit is the best way to kill time when I commute using MRT from my home to my workplace in the morning. At least this way I can keep the reading habit alive and make the commuting time efficient. It also prevent me from wasting the time when I queueing for something. So yes, it is a life-saver :).

I used to read those e-books in Microsoft Reader Format (I’ve read those classics such as Captain Blood, The Call of the Wild, Treasure Island, A Study in Scarlet, Great Expectations, The Prince, The Secret Garden in this format). When I recently rediscover the Project Gutenberg, I was really excited with the number of e-book collections available for download.

The best way to read the e-books from project Gutenberg is to install Vade-Mecum, a plucker document reader for Pocket PC.

So far I have downloaded all Mark Twain‘s books. And currently immersed with Tom Sawyer’s adventures.

In short:

  1. Download Microsoft Reader for Pocket PC
  2. Download Vade-Mecum, Plucker reader for Pocket PC
  3. Download the Free E-Books in Microsoft Reader Format
  4. Download the free E-Books in the Plucker Format

Have fun reading!

About Hardono

Hi, I'm Hardono. I am working as a Software Developer. I am working mostly in Windows, dealing with .NET, conversing in C#. But I know a bit of Linux, mainly because I need to keep this blog operational. I've been working in Logistics/Transport industry for more than 11 years.

Whoa.. I’ve been neglecting this blog for a month.

The main reason would the recent GST (Gross ServiceGoods and Services Tax) hike from 5% to 7% which required some works need to be done on the system. The work totally absorbed all my life energy and my will to live (haha.. you know I’m exaggerating :)).

We also have moved into the new HDB flat. The proper term would be shifting, since we moved to the unit in the same block, same floor, but the opposite corner. Hopefully the new space will inspire me better in blogging (which is not happen yet).

Lastly, thanks to all RSS subscribers and readers which still frequently patronize this blog although no updates, not even replies to the comments. I do feel bad for not replying the comments.
