Half Dome

Here’s Half Dome.

Yet another night of Extreme Short Shrift, only this time I really mean it. The Treo arrived tonight, along with its separately-shipped 2GB SD card, and I’ve been very busy playing with it getting it carefully set up. It’s getting close, but I need to get to bed and finish tomorrow.

Good things about the Treo: It’s comfortable to hold, I don’t miss Graffiti much, I like the keyboard in spite of its tiny size, the screen resolution is great, all my old applications work on it, it comes with a much better version of Documents To Go, for which I was able to download both the Mac and PC desktop software, and my Bluetooth headset works with it (after messing around with it for quite a while, but I suspect that to be the headset’s fault).

Bad things: You can’t voice dial without spending more money, and there doesn’t seem to be a solution that allows you to push the button on your headset and voice dial without taking the phone out of your pocket. That is hugely bad. That is totally inexcusable. Sigh. Otherwise, I have no complaints.

Took the truck home because I talked Loyal Readers Numbers Five, Six, and Twelve into coming over for the weekend, and LRN6 is going to help me detail the Ranger’s exterior tomorrow. The drive was just as long as taking the train would have been. I’m enjoying the train more and more, I tell you.

That’s it for tonight. See you Monday.
