The Palm III died, I had to buy a new one: I bought a Palm m505, Palm 505 depricated, now using a Tungsten T3 - I love it!

Cool things on my Palm Pilot: AvantGo Web reader (read things like NYT on your pilot), Dragon Bane (kills a lot of boring lectures for me), Documents to Go (view worksheets and docs on pilot).

Check Out Just The Facts on the web.

When I have time I like splatting people with my spyder.  Time, ya right basically that means never.  I hope that after I graduate in May I will be able to play some more.  Well I had hoped that graduation would yield more free time.  I was wrong.
