Good news and bad news.

The good news is that I’ve finally got my Palm Pilot working, and I must say I’m impressed. With CSpotRun as my text viewer, I’m reading Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey with gusto. The games are all as good as I’d expect. And once the software is set-up, double-clicking on any Pilot program automatically schedules it for transfer to the Pilot. Well done.

The bad news is that my BeOS machine refuses to boot now. I have no real idea why; it just sits there after I hit the power switch. I’m afraid it’s a motherboard problem. I’m going to try to install BeOS on my primary system now, and see how that works. I’m horribly frightened I’ll blow away all my data, but then why do I make backups?

In other news, I didn’t buy the switcher last night ($180!), so I’ve got my two systems separated again. It’s actually not so bad, particularly now that one of them doesn’t work. :-/
