Yes, I'm a Psioneer, and yes I DO own a PalmPilot. What about it?

No PDA collection is ever complete without one of these thingies...

Shall we look a little bit closer?

When you play around with the PalmPilot you'll quite soon notice that none of the programs has an 'Exit' or 'Close' choice. This is because the PalmPilot ordinarily doesn't close the programs, just shuffles them into the background and doesn't stop them unless it's running low on free memory. This does mean that when a program is switched to the background it has to store its state so that if it later is forced closed, it can restore back to it's previous state.

  • This script WILL log your IP adress.
  • Profanities, 'L337' speak, links to unrelated stuff like Pr0n and online gambling will result in your IP being banned, a message being sent to your ISP and anything else nasty I can think of...
  • Suspicious HTML in the comments field will also cause me to give you hell.
