Posting a reply to another thread got me thinking about picking up a
cheap or second hand PDA and a wi-fi card to use as another interface
to my Slimserver.

One potential issue - do I need to use the same skin on every device
that's accessing SlimServer? I'm guessing that it's a server setting
that is 'global' since everything is accessing the same instance of
the server. However, i'd be using the PDA in one room and the PC in
another.....

No, you don't.

Exactly what I'm doing. Just bookmark http://yourbox:9000/Handheld/ (or
whatever skin you prefer) on your PDA.
