What to do with a Rex?

I had hoped for some kind of PDAT equivalent for the Rex series. However, a reasonable look around the remaining sites seems to suggest that no such thing ever existed. If it did, there's no trace of it now.

It makes sense of course. There was a smaller community around the Rex than the Palm OS and it never had the ability to install software until the Rex 6000, so there was no PalmGear equivalent. Even so, it makes it difficult to find new ways to use these little devices.

That's not to say that I won't find a way of course. Hopefully I will, but, as I've mentioned before,  there isn't a way to connect two or more Rex devices, so that too makes it a more complex problem.

Any thoughts from you?
