Yes sir, Dobs, that's another good strategy that I often use. + I also try to keep in mind the nail clippers and pen knives, but I don't often carry those. (I do carry a Leatherman when I'm traveling to an IT job site, but try getting that through security. They send the Dobermans and you're bathed in sweeping floodlights from the guard towers.)Personally, I put all my metal(keys, phone, change, etc) in my carryon bag before I even get in line. Shoes and belt off--everything I can do to expedite the process.
Good question, Dobs. I have a grayscale Visor Deluxe, myself. (The one that's often mentioned in Fortcon posts from last year. )Phat...do you still use your Handspring visor? Will the software install on Windows XP? I have an OLD Visor...think grayscale screen, and I still have my file backup on my new XP machine, but I just never got around to installing the software for fear it wouldn't even install on XP.
I bought a new truck, and I turned the Visor into a way to track all my expenses, mileage, and maintenance records through this: TealAuto.
It's one less thing to synchronize now that the Visor does not contain my contacts and calendar. (I paid for and use Yahoo! almost exclusively for that.)
Yes, the Visor desktop software is compatible with XP (Professional edition, anyway ), and you can download the latest version here.
FYI, if you're interested in an HP, Dell or Gateway Pocket PC (Windows compatible), don't bother. I wanted one for the wireless 'Net capabilities, and I disliked it so much when I tried one from work that I gave up on it.
