since people are talking about it, here's PocketToot, a Mastodon API client (tested with 2.3.3, Pleroma untested but likely compatible) for Windows Mobile 5 in the Pocket PC form factor. (2003/Smartphone unsupported; see README)


@calvin This will end up with me booting up the IBM z50 and then enabling all sorts of broken SSL on my Mastodon server...

(Not before the next weekend though...)

@galaxis @calvin z50's far too old for this, you need Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC (which is CE 5.x), z50 is running CE 2.11 Handheld PC I think.

@bhtooefr @calvin Ah right. Too much retro again... Don't think I have any CE devices that modern.

@galaxis ...although .NET Compact Framework 1.0 SP3 has been backported to CE 2.x, apparently:

But, you'd need to backport to that target, and redo the UI, I think.

@calvin @galaxis I suspect you'd basically just have to bring in your own TLS library to run as far back as CE 2.xx?

@bhtooefr @galaxis .NET actually can run on 2.11, it's been backported; though it'd be the 1.x runtime, and not the 3.5 I depend on

1.x means no generics, autoprops, JSON parsing libs, and especially no funcprog
