I have not gotten to do as much Eee PC hacking as I’d like to, but I have been experimenting…

Eee PC Address Book

I took all of the vCards from Apple’s Address Book.app and exported them to a single file. I then use the ‘PIM’ application on the Eee PC to open it. It loaded them up ok, but not all fields are treated the same. In Address Book.app you can have multiple ‘home pages’ for an entry, but that gets all munged up in the Eee PC’s PIM application. I may have exported as a version 2.1 file, so I should try a 3.0, maybe that will bring the photos along as well. Still, a good first attempt. (The photo you see was taken with the Eee PC’s built-in camera.)

jEdit on the Eee PC

Our second bit of fun was getting jEdit installed. Luckily, I’m not the first, so following this Eeeuser forum thread made it pretty simple. Now I can run my favorite text editor anywhere…
