Just when I was thinking about replacing my <gag> palm* with a Casio E-125, and came here to read about it, I found that the Cassiopeia forum - and most of the rest of the site - is locked!

Why?

I found very little about the Casio on HPC Factor, a very active forum, but it's for HPC not PPC. Is there that much difference?

Is there a forum somewhere else for Cassiopeia?


*Actually Palm isn't so bad...for a watch.

Well, you could get an E-105 and then post in the Palm-size PC forum. (You can run lots of Pocket PC programs on it anyway.) Laughing

Hi,
You can still ask your questions here. I locked the forums due to the large amount of spam postings.

Sincerely,

How do they get through? Are spambots getting advanced enough to sign in?

Does anyone here have an E-125 you'd like to get rid of?

A lot of forum memberships going right back to the beginning were intentionally set up as 'sleeper' accounts, to be used later, often years later, for posting new spam threads, or for editing previous legitimate postings into spam nonsense. Some legitimate accounts have also been hacked, owing apparently to easy passwords. Since there is no way to test a new member's decency, the only choices left are manual deletion and account banning, or wholesale thread/device forum locking.
