Fun or practical things to do with an old Axim X3?

I dug up an old Dell Axim X3 in my closet. It was given to me years ago by an old employer, but I never used it due to the fact that I prefer a notepad for taking notes and my body's RAM (brain) for keeping my schedule. It doesn't have wireless capabilities and only has about 8 MB of space on the flash memory. The one slot for an expansion card means I have to choose between having either wireless ethernet or non-trivial memory. Furthermore, according to there doesn't seem to be much in the way of a bare-bones Linux-based OS I could throw onto it. I'd hate to throw out a nice piece of electronics that seems like it could be of some use.

Does anyone have any fun or useful projects that I might try with it? I've got a lot of programming experience but only a little electrical engineering (I took two semesters of classes in college), so that probably limits my options somewhat.
