I’ve got 5 left. email me if you want one.
On the move
Watch this space as it’s a merry-go-round at work.
Got recommended this piece of software by another palm user at work, mNotes. It’s for synching your Notes with your Palm. I’m currently using the evaluation version but it appears to work really well. Well better than the Lotus software I’d been using before.
deep fried treo
My Treo is still only half rebuilt. I haven’t put back a few bit’s of software as I can’t decide whether I need them or not. The WEA pilot I’ve been taking part in, which allows you to get your Lotus Notes anywhere is on the list of apps that I can’t make my mind up over.
I’ve bought Backupman as I just can’t take the risk of frying the Treo whilst out and about.
I’m back in IBM Weybridge for the next few days trying to close out 3 contracts with UK Telco’s on the $1bn deal that I’m working on. The MPLS network provider will be talking up most of my time, but it should be interesting. The sooner this contract signs the better. We’re all itching for it to get out into the public domain, who, what, how much etc.
I’ve been reading 43 folders and I’ve liked some of the tips that they’ve posted. So I decided to bite the bullet and buy the book. Now I’m not saying I’m rubbish at organising myself but I thought it worth while seeing what all the fuss is about. I’ve already done some course in personal time management at work and taught them the odd trick.
However, I’ve created a new category GTD.
I’m getting a little fed up now of my retractable sync cable. Unless you put it in perfect first time, it shorts out the connectors at the bottom and fries the treo. The next thing you see is the Palm logo. Not good.
The last couple of times this happened a quick hot sync and all the apps and configs where put back. Yesterday it put back a right mess. No versamail, no WEA client, the list goes on. SO I’m not very impressed. I think I’ll have to start using the real sync cable whilst at home and just use the retractable one for travelling (where the impact of shorting is huge!)
Can anybody recommend a make for a retractable sync cable that they’ve used without problem?
Unbundling in the DSL market.
BT’s shares were downgraded to ‘underperform‘ which isn’t good news for BT. The news cam on the back of C&W’s plans to develop it’s products within the DSL market place now that it had acquired Bulldog. I wonder what fix time C&W would give for it’s DSL service? So it looks like some of the bigger players are moving into the market that has been predominantly occupied by the smaller companies Bulldog, Nildram etc.
But the move by C&W is interesting as it had previously concentrated on the business customer as it sold it’s consumer division to NTL (Maybe swapped would be a better word). So are C&W starting to go after the UK residential customers head to head with it’s old rival NTL?
still reading it. I seem
still reading it. I seem to read it only on plane or train journeys. It’s the only time I get to myself these days for a couple of hours.
