Re: WorkPad z50 and GnuPG

Dunno. I don't use GPG; when I do anything PGPish, it's
pre-standardization PGP, and I don't do it on the z50.
But I do know that 30 seconds was not unusual for an ssh login. (That
sort of speed - or lack thereof - is one reason I implemented
connection sharing in moussh.)
I say "was" because my machine now has only 16 megs of RAM too, since
the add-on memory module broke and I don't have another. MemoryX (my
usual source for memory) doesn't have them, and I haven't yet gotten
around to ferreting out anyone who does. (MemoryX thought they did,
but what they sent me didn't fit mechanically, and when I sent them
photos of everything relevant they got back to me saying sorry, they
don't have anything suitable.)
And 16M is a bit too cramped to run much in, so I haven't been using it
since then. (I need to do some OS hackery....)

Much the same goes for me too; if anyone has a z50 memory module for
sale, I'm interested in hearing about it.
