I would forget to use it. Leave it somewhere. Lose it. Drop it.

Lazer,<p>I went to Palm.com and downloaded the desktop version of the software that would be used to share info with the Palm. I have to agree with your experience. It looked like you need some incredible discipline to keep up with entries. I'll stick with the pen and paper for now. I can always use the Palm desktop software and print out the schedules anyway. Thanks for your opinion to all.<p>jeff

jeferyr,<p>This year I started using what I call the &quot;poor mans Palm&quot;. It's a Timex Ironman Data Link watch that I got at Wal-MArt for $45. Not only is it a 100m waterproof (i.e. sweatproof) watch, but it can store 30 or 40 of my customers phone #'s, daily weekly and annual alarms. The alarm function works well for me because in the winter (Nov -Mar) I usually schedule trim jobs for each day of the week and the alarm goes off each morning to remind me where I must go that day. The best thing about it is that you can program ALL it's functions thru your computer without having to press all those little buttons on most watches nowdays. It's no palm, but you can't beat the price and it's hard to loose something that's straped onto your wrist.<p>Ed (mowerman@atlantic.net)<br>Spring Hill

Jeff,<br>I apologize for the response delay. I think the Palm VII is internet ready. Or the Lincoln Mark VII. <p>Assume the price requires cell access and air time.<p>My Mac is nine years old, and only a word processor now.

Mowerman,<p>That timex sounds like it may do the trick just fine for what I wanted.<br>Toroguy, <br>I looked at the Palm VII and you pay for internet by the megabyte. I think it was min. $10 per month for 50 megs.<p>I think I have decided against it....it would become an albatross in no time....and then a dust collector....presuming I didn't lose or break it before then..<p>Thanks for all the input.<br>jeff

Buy a pocket sized day timer type planner from the office max or staples. About $10.
