    From everything I've read, it is possible to put programs like WordSmith in flash memory, as long as you leave the data on your Visor. That's great. How? When I look at the info screen, it all looks like one big program. Is there a secret decoder ring needed?

    I have 9 MB of programs, including WordSmith, MiniCalc, and tons of Games like Bedazzled, all on my 16MB Flash Module.
    The only way you know it is on the flash is that there is a little black square in front of the name.
    In fact the only programs I don't have on the Flash Module are the ones that came with my Prism.
    Of course you have to leave the database files (.pdb) on your Visor, but it is great having all that extra room.

    The only limitation currently is that you can't use hacks on any file you have on the Flash Module.

    Could you expand on that a bit? I mean, you can't use hacks like Phglem hack to bring up a list of apps to jump to, when you're running an application that's in FLASH ROM?

    Thanks in advance for clarification....

    The info screen tends to show you the application and the associated files under it as one big lump. With the Flash Modules, you get an application called FileMover (the secret decoder ring) that gives you a more detailed view of what is on your Visor/Flash Module. When using the FileMover, you will see WordSmith, its associated databases (for preferences, etc.) and the WordSmith doc files. You just move the WordSmith prc and leave the rest on the Visor. (unless you have some read only doc files. Then you might be able to move those also.) Pretty simple and straight forward, once you see it.

    If at first you do succeed, try not to look astonished.

    Hacks like McPhling are fine - I leave it, along with X-master on my Visor.
    I just discovered that the Registered version of Afterburner, actually works with the Flash Module. I just increased the speed to 43 mHz ( The max speed for the Prism)and it works great!
    So to quote Gilda Radner, "Never mind!"
