What this is: a semi-online way of tracking down obscure or no-longer-supported Psion and Symbian programs that you've heard of but haven't been able to track down on-line

What this isn't: a place where you can bombard me with requests for files that are already easily available on-line, thus wasting my time and yours(!), or a place to look for warez or pirated copies of current commercial software.

Procedure for tracking down program 'X'

  • Try to find it on the author's web site. You may already have his name or you may get the address for this given to you in one of the Psion/Symbian Usenet newsgroups (comp.sys.psion.misc is a good starting place). Either way, you'll be able to get update information and the latest copy of the program direct from the author and shouldn't need to involve me.
  • So, you've tried to find program 'X' on the web and have failed. No-one on Usenet can shed any light and you've no other clues to go on. The 3-Lib postal library that I run has a huge back-catalogue of Psion shareware and freeware and almost certainly contains what you're looking for - so why not get yourself a copy, or at least check out the indexes?
  • If all the above fail, there's still a good chance I can track down the program you're after. In some cases, I even have access to long forgotten/discontinued/unsupported commercial programs which obviously couldn't be included on the shareware CD above. Just mail me with as much information as you've got and I'll have a look for you.
  • Assuming I've tracked down program 'X' successfully, I'll then simply make it available directly here in my 'Lost and Found' bin below. At least then it'll be already on-line when someone else comes looking for the same program! Please note that these files are nothing whatsoever personally to do with me, I'm only the librarian! As a by-product of their obscurity, it's almost certain that these programs are no longer supported by their authors.... you have been warned!
