This D&#n Digital Age...

It's probably a sign of our times, no doubt, but I'm truly unhappy with this digital spite of blogging, Ravelry, cell phones and such.

Today my peeve is this:
That's my third Palm Z22. I bought the first one almost 2 years ago, and it never worked. I traded it for the second one, which I had until the first of this month, when it refused, suddenly, to turn on. I bought my third at that point, right before heading off to the cat show, and it worked...until this morning when I went to add something to my grocery list.


It took me only a few minutes to realize that I was probably ready to upgrade. And I do like Palm products. (Sorta...I have a friend who has had repeated problems with his Palm Treo, to the point where I understand he finally threw it across the room...he has a Blackberry now)

I did not want a Blackberry, in fact, I have no desire to incorporate more complexity into my life if I can avoid it. I've learned that the more features you add to things the more likely it is to fail. But I was willing to pay a little more to have a PDA that was more or less consistent.

Welcome the newest addition to Knitnana's life:
A Palm Tungsten E2. Tonight's been all about setting up the software, which meant uninstalling the old Z22 software AFTER I'd sync'd the backup data to the new device...long story, and a tech support chat session assisted me in the process - one of the few times I've had good luck with tech support live chat.

I'll say one thing I noticed right off. The display on this one is SO much better for my aging eyes!

I'm really not a high tech gal.

Which is probably why this is a knitting blog, huh?

DH and I have Tungstens. I've found for Palm PDAs and my MP3 players the best thing around is to buy the extended warranty at Best Buy. They have had to replace one of each for me.

My favorite software is KnitAble. It has a desktop feature for easy data entry, In addition to keeping track of projects (a lot like Ravelry) it has a calculator that will figure out increase spacing for you. Love it!

I had a palm M1 years ago and then a TX and now I have a centro. I've had various issues over the years but nothing as major as yours - knock on wood!

As much as I love technology I find a paper calendar and address book the most efficient way to keep track...

I palm died and I've gone back to paper calenders. You can loose them but they never die on you.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
