I made great progress on the edits since Monday night. (Except on Tuesday, when I went to the new Matrix movie to avoid a horrid traffice jam and came home really late.) Then, last night, I noticed the Palm batteries were getting close to the "warn" threshold. It couldn't hurt to change them now, right? Well, it did. A lot. :(
The batteries (or one of them anyway) weren't in just right, and the Palm didn't recognize that it had power. I tried another pair. But either it was too late or they weren't in correctly, either.
All the new edits I made since last Hot Synching (Saturday afternoon) have been lost. The 60-second "grace" period (so-called) between battery changes sucks. I have never had a problem with changing the batteries -- this never happened to me before. This is probably the first time I ever really, truly hated
my Palm, the manufacturer (whatever they're called this week), etc. Phhhhhhbbbbbbtttt.
On the other hand, I can only hope that once I do the edits over again, they will go more quickly, and maybe I'll even get better ideas.
