Vienniese PUG met on the 6,1,2005-TamsPalm readers get informed

The vienniese PalmUserGroup meets at the first thursday of each month. Ideas are shared and devices are tested-keep on reading for a short report and lots of photos from the event!

This time, we met in a Pub called Bieramt for a last time. It served the PUG well for almost a year, but staff recently got cocky(e.g. calling me Mr.Palm, beeing slow, giving cheeky answers, ignoring drink orders,...). Thus, a new meeting spot had to be found-the members shall soon be notified about it. Well, I was there late by a few minutes(I had to write the TE2 article), and immediately bumped into Alex, our coordinator. He proudly presented his latest achievments-a Tungsten C purchased for 240€ with a memory card and an old Treo 270. In return, he was treated to my Palm Vii and stowaway keyboard prototypes-reviews with more images are coming soon. These two circulated among the users on the meeting, along with my SX1, the TE2 article and the advertising stuff I showed in my blog a few days ago(card and magazine).
Eventually, other users trickled in, having a total of two TT2s, three TT3's, a TC, a V, a Treo 270, a Zire 71 and a Vii accompanied by a huge pile of different mobile phones. These little gadgets provided us with lots of ranting opportunities-we spent like half an hour debugging different configurations(SX1 dials as Nokia 3650, but no SMS).
After that, most problems were solved and the rest was given up.
we then proceeded to swapping different kinds of software using memory cards, bluetooth and infrared as appropriate. We discussed ideas and problems of the platform in a more or less familiar way. It was very interesting and all the members are already looking forward to the next meeting in february.

How are the PUG's in your area? Is there one? Please comment!

Scroll down for a few pretty bad photos(the SX1 isn't all that good in dim light)

Oh no-its christmas charol time. Damnit...

Swapping some programs. This is the best way to keep yourself curent and productive-visit your local PUG!

A T3 and a TC exchanging data via IRDA. Bluetooth or WLAN could not be used, because the two handhelds did not have an equal transfer system...

The first victom of the day-Alex's Tungsten C crashed. Luckily, unlike my T3 a few days before, a softreset fixed it...

Dear Friend,
flaming people anonymously is very easy. Especially flaming them about their look and not about contents-all I can say:3l33t...
However, posting your name would greatly help discussion about the topic...
Best regards

The Metrosexual Guide to Style: A Handbook for the Modern Man
By Michael Flocker

Ten Wardrobe Must-Haves

Your personal wardrobe should always be evolving.

The general rule is that you should throw out, or donate to charity, anything you haven’t worn in the last two years. The key is downsizing.

Lose the frumpy, sentimental stuff, and change with the times.

Keep the T-shirt you love, but lose the reindeer sweater your mother bought you back when you were tragic.

In the final analysis, the perfect male wardrobe is infinitely - and thankfully - less complicated than the female wardrobe.

Obviously, you need to find what works for you, but here are ten elements that you really shouldn’t be without:

- Three black T-shirts, three new white T-shirts

- Two different pairs of flattering jeans

- One dark suit

- One leather or suede short coat (not a bomber jacket)

- Two rollneck or crewneck cable-knit sweaters

- Two pairs of dark, straight-leg, nonpleated pants

- Three well-cut, solid-color, button-down shirts (one white)

- Quality sunglasses

- One expensive watch, one sports watch

- Flattering underwear

Fashion Don’ts for the Metrosexual Man:

Before you create your new self, you may want to review the following list of unforgivable crimes:

- Varsity jackets
- White shoes
- Colorful vests
- Christmas sweaters
- Bolo ties
- Pleated or cuffed jeans
- Acid-washed anything
- Mesh anything
- Cropped pants
- Boots with shorts
- Gym shorts with shoes

Do's and Don'ts...
* Pirate shirts, loud patterns, buckles, and zippers are for circus performers and boy bands.
* Pleated pants are history. Slim-fit, straight-leg pants make you look longer and sharper.
* Your clothes should conform to your body. Spend the extra money and have suits tailored.
* Your belt and your shoes should always match, and black on black works best.
* A silver, stainless steel watchband will go with everything. Leather bands should be strong and masculine, and sport watches are for sporting occasions.
* High school or college rings are best kept in the dresser drawer until the reunion is announced.
* A slim billfold or money clip is important, as a bulging wallet will only produce unsightly lumps in all the wrong places.

5 Tips To Improve Your Fashion Style
By Adam Di Stefano

Fashion is a topic that preoccupies men more and more these days. They have realized that looking good is not a department that the ladies have exclusive control over. A sense of fashion is an asset in every aspect of a man's life: business, personal and social.

While there are still some that will try to fight it, the reality is that a well-dressed man will get a second look. Personality is important, but no one takes a quick look at you and says, "Wow -- check out the sense of humor on that guy."

In today's world, to stay one step ahead, it's important to look your best. That means developing your own sense of style. For a lot of men, that's a scary thought. But fear not, I'm here to guide you through it.

1- Listen to the experts
I've met far too many men who have gone through life having their style dictated to them by their mothers, then by their girlfriends, and then by their wives. There are also those men who escaped the trap of wearing someone else's style only to find themselves with no style whatsoever.

If you've never taken a shot at creating your own style, a good place to start is with the experts. Pick up a copy of a men's fashion magazine or log on to Instead of flipping straight to the sports editorial or the babe of the month, check out the fashion section.

Read a few articles and you'll soon find that you've picked up most of the basic rules: don't wear light socks with dark shoes, always match your shoes with your belt, never wear anything too tight.

While you're checking out those mags, check out the ads that you usually skip over. They'll give you a good idea of where the trends are heading. Which brings us to tip two...

2- Get with the trends
Fashion is all about evolving style. What's in, what's out. What's new, what's passé. What's hot, what's not. But put all those clichés aside and being stylish is about looking good. It's also about knowing what to wear right now.

But with trends changing faster than you can say fashion faux pas, how can men be expected to keep up?

A good place to start is to take a look at popular artists from the music, movie and TV industries. Look around for trendsetters and take some tips from them. In particular, check out what they wear during award shows and adapt it to your style.

The clothes worn by the actors on TV shows like The OC, Las Vegas and most daytime soaps (ask your girlfriend about these) are generally good examples of what is acceptable dress.

If you've flipped through all the fashion mags, watched TV, tried wandering down the streets, and have still come up empty, you will never go wrong emulating the threads of celebrities such as Pierce Brosnan, Denzel Washington, Tom Cruise, and Will Smith.

Save that old shirt & show some attitude...

3- Go retro
Fashion is a cyclical concept. What was once old will soon be new again. Remember when you were chastised for wearing your aviator sunglasses? Well, now you can wear them with confidence because they're back.

While renewing one's wardrobe is important, throwing old stuff out isn't always a good idea. With vintage clothing being very trendy right now, you may be able to dig through some of your old clothes and find something that you never would have dreamed you could wear again.

Things to look for include logo T-shirts, patterned button-down shirts and motorcycle-style jackets. Once your favorite wardrobe items, they're back in style... and you need to enjoy them while the trend lasts.

4- Stay in shape
Fashion is not just about what you wear, it's also about how you wear it. Take the same threads and put them on two different people: one who's in good shape and athletic, and another who has a beer gut, round shoulders and a sunken chest. No matter what the clothes are, they'll look better on the first guy.

Taking better care of your body can be as simple as making a few minor changes to your diet and spending a couple of hours at the gym every week. The related benefits of being healthier are that you'll feel better about your body, be more confident and, therefore, look better. Attitude stems from confidence, and a large part of style is attitude.

5- Be yourself
The most important aspect of developing your own style is remaining true to yourself. Just because something looked great on that Versace model doesn't necessarily mean it's for you. If you're uncomfortable in it, chances are it isn't.

There are enough styles out there that everyone should be comfortable finding their own. Even if you discover that your own style isn't mainstream, you're better off respecting that realization than walking around in a sheep suit that doesn't fit.

fix your fashion

The ultimate point is that developing your own style should not be a chore; it should be fun. When you discover what works for you, you'll see that striving to look your best isn't work at all. It should come naturally.

Dear Mr whatever,
may I remind you of a few things:
1)This is a PalmOS-Page, and not a page where people who have nothing to do but look at themselves can discuss their favourite looks. Palm OS, NOT fashion. Get it?
2)This blog has a comment moderator. ONE MORE COMMENT, AND ALL OF THEM GO!! GET IT?
3)No trolling, etc is tolerated here. I will not turn off anonymous posting because of just one jackass, but your comments will not be seen on the blog.
4)You are the biggest coward I have ever seen. Post your name, dude!

Now, you can of course stay here-but if you want to comment, you gotta be productive! I am happy about every visitor I get-but keep in mind that trolling, etc wil not be accepted!
With best Regards
Tam Hanna
