Apparently Palm Desktop has a habit of corrupting its databases to the point where its software can't read it. Their solution: Buy a third party tool to fix the corruption. So despite the EOL nature of Palm OS, I find myself needing to buy some software in order to enjoy our remaining time together. http://www.pimlicosoftware.com/dbfixit.htm
If anyone is a pimlico affiliate and wants the referral credit, please let me know and I will use your name. I will probably buy tomorrow or the day after.
