Welcome back! I did the same thing a few months ago, and my two Palms
(m505 and Vx) have been gathering dust. Too cheap to sell on eBay,
too expensive to throw away.

Yes. And if you have the cojones for it, overclock it.

I haven't found a browser with which I'm happy. NetHopper works, but
barely. Newt's Cape is hard to start using, and so I gave up.
LunaSuite Pro - now free - seems to be the best simple tool, although
I may actually **read** the NC docs :^)
