The Treo 600 doesn't do wifi does it? Or is there some add-on that
enables that?

The only WiFi capable Palms I know of today are:

Tungsten W (comes with it)
Zire 72 (Palm & Sandisk SD card)
Tungsten T3 (Palm SD card)

Of course, you could always connect to the server through Bluetooth if
you had a bluetooth machine close enough (although it would have to be
close enough to make it pretty pointless).

I have a WiFi SD card for my T3, and it works great (fantastic range,
especially for something so small), but it does eat up the palm battery
pretty fast - it will probably only go a few hours on a charge.

I haven't tried changing skins or anything like that to take advantage,
but I probably should! With a 480x320 screen, I bet it looks nice.
