When I finished work in the UK I had to hand back my Windoze PDA, so I was left wondering what to do for portable notes and a diary.

I did some checking on t’Internet and found a guy who could not only fix my old PDA, but make it better than new, with a more robust better designed screen cable (I’ve already gone through two). Unfortunately some problems with the repairs meant it wasn’t ready when I left the UK, so Robert brought it over for me.

I wasn’t all surprised when it all worked fine, but what did catch me out was on inserting my old memory card it all sprang into life just as it was over three years ago when the screen cable last broke.

I’m now looking forward to becoming re-accustomed to some decent PDA software. I just hope it syncs with the latest version of Outlook.
