|08:11 am - Speaking of tech support|
A story Tril told about her trip and resisting the urge to offer tech support reminded me of something that happened when I was at the second auto mechanic last week. As I was being processed to leave, a guy was standing next to me with sitting on a "Fatal Exception" error. I'd assumed he'd already tried to reset it with the back, but for some reason the Treo stylus doesn't actually fit the reset slot. The clerk gave us a safety pin, (oooh, old skool!) and it was the matter of a heartbeat before I'd reset the palm and left him very happy to go to the third mechanic.
Hoppie has a shirt, "No, I will not fix your computer." I need a button, "I will fix your gadget!"

(I know it's gauche to LJ-reply to one's own husband, but when one is 2500 miles away, one does not have a choice).
Depending on the Treo model, the stylus may have had a top and a bottom that unscrewed. The bottom contains the reset pin.
Complete aside iPhone love note of the day: never again having to reset the digitizer, ala PalmOS.
