Wow! You sound _exactly_ like someone who hasn't seen the
rugged Kyocera phones. And even the Treos are pretty sturdy
(more so than Pocket PC PDAs/phones). Nothing like listening
to some MP3s from a SD on a bike (yes, even this "Fat Guy"
rides one ;-)!

Dude, I was just wondering how you evaluated. I'm sorry for
even mentioning it, but you _did_ bring up the fact that you
had to go Windows on a Linux list.
I thought I'd just mention the options you have for a Linux
compatible device, that's all. Maybe someone _else_ might be

Do you have a guilt complex or something?
_You_ didn't have to explain a thing about Windows or the
fact that you have a Pocket PC, etc... just to ask about
encoding. But you did. Sorry I mentioned what options you
might have missed.
Maybe someone else will use the info next time. Okay?

And this _entire_ question had what to do with needing a
Pocket PC-based PDA? Again, _you_ introduced it. Now you're
upset that I mentioned there were other options.
Sorry, didn't mean to offend. But on a Linux list, when
someone starts mentioning options and what things don't do
that are Linux compatible, I tend to offer several options
that do. That's all. Don't have a guilt complex or
something because that's _not_ what I'm trying to do!

And you didn't need to say that you had to go Pocket PC just
to ask a question about encoding.
I'm _not_ complaining you did. But I _am_ pointing out this
fact, and why some asshole like myself might bring up the
Linux compatible options out there.
This is _exactly_ what I mean about hypocrisy. I did *NOT*
complain about you going on about Pocket PC why you couldn't
use a Linux compatible device. But you _are_ complaining
about I am mentioning some Linux alternatives that you ...
obviously ... didn't bother to investigate.
Sorry to have "guilted" you on a Linux list, not my intent.
