I traded in my Sony Clie for a new Zire 72 (using CompUSA's replacement plan). Alas, it's been nothing but trouble trying to get my Palm apps installed into the Zire and transferring all my data over. And then, for the coup de grace, during the 97th reinstall of the PalmDesktop, Windows ate my registry. All my preferences were destroyed! Email programs lost their settings. Registered programs lost their validation codes. Icons, window settings, desktop themes, all gone! Fortunately, it wasn't a HD crash, so my data is safe. (whew!) This weekend, I've got to buy a CD-RW (previously I used my roommate's, as our computers were networked), backup, and do a complete reinstall. It was about time, I suppose. Alas, I'm still on a PIII 450 machine with Win98SE. This would be a great time to upgrade both computer and OS, but I'm saving for a new house I'm getting in a few months. I think I might like the Zire if I ever get all the software installed and my data transfered. (sigh).
