And Web browsing (as other RAM-hungry apps) can be improved by using swap and zram. I'll give that a try.
I did not have a single crash of a browser on my 256MB unit with a 512MB swap file on SD.
@all: I would appreciate if someone could answer my open questions:
Can I use any qualitative 5V 1A (or more) charger with the Pandora?
You can use it, it won't do any harm.
However, I don't know, if 1A is enough to charge the battery, when the Pandora is working.
If it does, it would do so very slowly.
How to run a memory test on the Pandora?
The simplest one:
;-) I don't know any other memory test method, possile on Pandora.
What about this "memtest" usitility, present on many boot CDs? This seems to be Linux-based. Can this be compiled for Pandora, too?
How to test for a continuos network connection / stream (with standard UNIX CLI tools) ?
What about using ping?
What level of checking do you need? It should be easily possible to assemble a bash script with a for loop, executing a ping command, ans issuing a desktop notification or a zenity dialog box, once ping is unsuccessful.
If you like, I can write such a script.
