Hello, On my Palm organiser, I recently discovered permanently losing my work in its Memo Pad editor took 4 pen-strokes: Pull-down its Edit menu. Tap "Select All". Scribble a letter to replace everything, "P". When asked if I realise this editing operation cannot be undone? Choose "OK". I unconsciously did all this, involuntary spasms in my hand tapping here and there, in a second. I sat there dumb and petrified, transfixing the empty rows and that "p", where 7 days of craftsmanship once flowed. I glimpsed those first months of my infant Palm, when I used to regularly and loving lay it in its Hot Sync cradle, which itself now lays emersed in the wired Spaghetti spilling from my PC. I wonder if Palm limited memos to 8,000 characters because these devices may fall into the hands of terrorists and lawyers, as-well as clowns? Feel my pain in the circus of life.
