    Hello!

    After literally years of lurking here I have registered and would like to say hello and thank you. As you can see from my sig, I am a long time PDA user (since about 1982). I also am a long time cell phone user. I had the first hand held cell phone available in the US in 1984 - a unit made by Mitsubishi but marketed under the brand USA Corp by a small company of that name.

    I have waited for the Treo 650 since then! A combination of PDA and phone that worked as well as the separate units did. Being a Verizon subscriber I had to wait until they had the 650, and I purchased mine the first day the store had them.

    It is the device I have been wanting for over 20 years. I am totally pleased with its performance, which has been made exceptionally powerful and useful thanks to information I have gathered here on TC!

    One of my only frustrations has been not being able to see calendar dates in the search results (although every now and then they show up). After much experimenting I settled with IntelligentFind. The other night I was playing with some of the options on IF and my machine reset. For the first time, after the reset everything was screwed up big time!

    I am a very diligent backer-upper. First I hard reset and tried restoring from my Mac, which didn't quite work so well (the graveyard of old backups and old programs get reloaded). I hard reset again and tried by card restore from Resco Backup. 30 seconds later everything was back to normal. All my prefs, K maps and Java, everything was there.

    Except one small matter... I couldn't synch to the mac anymore! It kept resetting on the Tasks and quitting HotSynch. I tried everything, restoring the conduits from backups, various conduit overwriting sequences, etc. Finally I just set To Do and Tasks to Do Nothing.

    Still frustrated, I did a search here and found Bill Gamble's post about dbScan fixing problems like this. I downloaded the file he so generously posted and followed his instructions. Success!

    I am so impressed by this, and all of the other things I have learned here that I had to register today and thank all of you for your contributions. Although this is my first post here, I feel like I know many of you very well as I have been reading your posts daily for years.

    At TC I have first heard about (and now using) many apps like kMaps, DirAssist, Pocket Tunes, Resco Backup (WORLD CLASS PROGRAM!), and hardware such as the HBH-662 that I use daily (and works very well with my setup). Thank you all again!

    In closing this very long-winded post, may I add a few favorite apps of mine that I don't see as much mention of as the top favorites: Tube 2, Ultralingua, SeaTraffic (I live in the Seattle area), Teal alias, and eWallet.

    Thanks again, I'll try not to be a stranger!
