 Hi Justin,
Great stuff.   I have several iPaqs and a Thunderbolt so I will be giving
this a try.  I've been saving several iPaqs for just such a possibility.
I'm not very adept at programming but I did manage to program a simple
calculator for my iPaq using MS eMbedded several years ago just to prove I
could.  I saw some possibilities for using the iPaq to display data but
never had the time to pursue them further.   

I'm currently building a LCD display for my Thunderbolt using a PIC.  I'm
far enough down that road to not change the design.  But, I do have another
case that will fit the iPaq display.  Thanks to you, that may become my next
project.  I'm very appreciative that you posted your work.

Just wanted to let you know there is interest in your work and to encourage

tnx & 73
Wayne, WA7NE

A while back, I scored an old Compaq iPaq Pocket PC for cheap at an auction.
Recently, I wrote a program for it that reads the time and health
information from a Thunderbolt and displays it in real-time.  More info
available here:  http://www.fuzzythinking.com/projects/thunderhead/

I may be the only guy in the world who owns both of those pieces of
hardware, but in case anyone else does, please enjoy this program.
