Plots, Various and Sundry  
1. Pazaak can probably be played with one deck (minus face cards) for dealing, and each player using their own deck of cards for their draw deck (using diamonds and spades as +/-, clubs are -, hearts are +). Not a revolutionary thought, but I'm thinking about trying it out sometime soon.

2. There is still a place that sells old-school keyboards. Clicky-super-tactile keyboards sound pretty cool to me.

3. You could probably make a higher-powered PipBoy 2000 with one of these (they're going for $99 right now), a plastice enclosure, and some artistic integrity. I haven't thought a lot about the screen or the input devices necessary, but then again, I only came up with this one.

4. Hey! The computer that my last set is on finally fucking works!

5. The phrase "It's time to be immortal, because heroes never die" doesn't make any damn sense.

Batteries are easy to do: serial D-cell NiMH with a step converter can power a normal laptop for up to three hours, depending on how many of them you want to use. I'm also looking for a bigger screen, and weight is not a factor.

Although the function of the iPaq would be similar, it's the aesthetic that I'm really after. Adding the GPS received and the mapping software, though - that's a good idea. I never remember that the PipBoy does that.

You ever seen/used a 3com Audrey? That may be the proper case.
