Occasionally, things come out all right.

P5190129.JPGWhile out at Canobie Lake Park yesterday with the fam, I chanced to note my Treo had shed another component of itself. I’ve been missing my stylus for quite a while (I go through about one a month), but I also noted my 2gig Sandisk SD card has ejected itself. This occasionally happens when I drop the Treo pretty hard – but it usually just ‘unclicks’ the card, and I just shove it back in. This time apparently the card had escaped completely.
There wasn’t anything particularly important on it – I usually use it to move pictures from the Treo to yawl, but I have a half dozen apps installs on it also (including GeoNiche, an outstanding bluetooth GPS client specifically designed for Geocaching). The cards cost-wise are down on a par with packing material, so I was at best a little annoyed.
This morning while packing up for a week-long business + vacation trip, I glanced down in the driveway and LO! There was the SD card! Lonely from it’s night out in the cold (in July?), but looking none the worse for wear. Clicking it back into the Treo brought up the familiar “Here’s what’s on this card!”
It’s nice when things actually go your way on occasion. Even if it only involves a little $15 memory card.

eric found some software (he says it’s called “notifyme”) which he uses to make his treo make a lot of noise when the SD card is ejected, because he’s lost his multiple times… you’d think they’d make a less touchy eject system.

What GPS receiver do you use with GeoNiche?

I’ve got at least 2-3 extra stylii for my 700p that I acquired when I bought it. Want me to send you one?

You are from New Hampshire too? Cool! Manchester myself. Live free or die: Death is not the worst of evils. Little wonder that all the Free Software advocates come from the Northeast.
