Hey,

The zire 71 is by far the best of have used. My sister has the sony nx80 which has a better built in camera and video capability and is drool worthy but mine still beats hers. My visor prism is garbage compared to the zire 71 and I paid almost $200 dollars more for my prism. Got the prism a little after it came out for $399 got the zire 71 last wednesday for a whopping $216 with free fed ex ground shipping.

The /avantgo/ was only a naming convention, but of course it can be used with any other offline reader like iSilo Adding the channel to your channel list should work just fine, but if you like, you can also follow the instruction here:

Hey,

The price is what really bothers me. I can buy 3 zire 71's for the price my sister paid for her nx80. The keyboard on her palm sucks as do the application buttons. You have to play liberty (i know there is an onscreen way to play but it sucks) and nesem with the clamshell design of the nx80 open. A handful of programs support hi res + it looks nice but it also increases the size of the programs significantly 320 x 320 is now the standard. The nx80 seems bulky to me and heavy not a good pocket palm, the zire 71 is a feather compared to it (my prism was a brick compared to it). The camera is nice on the nx80 I have to admit has a mega pixel camera, video with sound, panaramic viewing but again this takes up too much space to just be good without a memory stick. The zire 71's camera is just cool, you slide the two halves to expose the camera and you're ready to shoot. I have my opinion, researched the palms for months and it was between the t3 and the zire 71. Got the zire 71 because the camera is built in. Don't like to carry around cards, the free slot is perfect for the memory card that I'm getting when my free mp3 kit arrives. When I had my visor prism I carried around the little eyemodule 2 box, had an innopak 2v in the slot already, when I wanted to take a picture I had to take out the little box take out the 2v from my prism put in the eyemodule 2 and take a picture. With the zire 71 with one hand, take out of my pocket, slide and shoot.

All in all this is my opinion...why do you like the nx80 better?

Wizard of Id was already included, and I added Andy Capp, Peanutes and Hagar.
Make sure to get the updated .ixl template from here (link).

Smile Thanks

Thanks for the update. 1MB of comics waiting to be hotsynced!


Incidentally, it seems the makers of User Friendly are unimpressed with this idea - check out the comic and comments about eating your squinchy little head. Also, no luck with Hagar but as I'm only trying it for the first time tonight I can't be sure yet that it's a real problem. Thanks again.

All Comics Excluded

Alexander,

I am using your incredible All Comics Excluded link. It is fantastic. I only removed the filter for Doonesbury and Calvin and Hobbs since those were the only two I wanted to view, however I note that Andy Capp and Peanuts also show up. Perhaps the filter doesn't exclude them. It is a minor problem, but any suggestion on how I can filter those two out?

Thanks.

Hey rbentley,

the excluded-link file was updated when another member asked for adding new comics. See two posts above.

Alexander, I now regularly sync two comics pages: yours and Clegg's*. the reason is that you have a couple of comics unique to each of you. One thing I've noticed that's interesting however is that the 'Hagar The Horrible' strip doesn't show on your page (ever) but does on Clegg's. Perhaps you should change the link you use? If it's a problem of hosting the image you need to remove the link as it simply doesn't work.
The same is true of 'User Friendly' - Clegg's page displays it and yours doesn't.
I'm really grateful for the comics page and don't mean to nitpick but I thought you'd find this interesting.

melyvnadam,

thanks for bringing this up. I will think about a solution, and if I don't come up with one, will disable the two comics you mentioned.
