I don't normally use this blog to post about other blogs, but this one made me smile tonight. Rick over at MyPalmLife has been having trouble connecting his T|T3 with a Windows XP box. But he found a solution:
So to summarise if your having problems syncing follow these basic steps (at your own risk of course) :-
I was sitting down this evening to write something about an interesting app I had found. It was not interesting because of what it could do, because there are others out there which can do the same, or because it was a particularly nice 'user-experience', but because it had a decent level of functionality, making use of the hi-res screen, in only 24kb of program.
That made me realize how quickly I have come to accept that any Palm application which does something useful will be at least 150kb and many are over 400kb. As far as I can see, size is not directly proportional to functionality, so is it just lazy programming?
As I said, I was sitting down to write about this amazingly small application. So what happened? Well, I was deleting some records and otherwise preparing it to take screenshots when it crashed. Database must have corrupted. And now it crashing every time I open it. (Thank goodness for Uninstall Manager.)
So perhaps all that extra code is doing something - checking for errors.
