    4 times today I have seen a little bug crawl quickly across the screen of my sprint treo 650. I tried to quickly put my finger on it but no luck. I'm not crazy and I havent been drinking. I have heard of the taxi, but not the spider.

    The first time I thought it was a real spider, but as it happened a few more times I realized it had to be fake. Has anyone ever heard of this before?

    Deliriums Tremens, perhaps?

    Whats next??? I suppose you'll tell us you saw a taxi drive by
    MaxiMunK.com The Forum That Asks, "Are You Not Entertained?"

    Remember: "Anyone that thinks the Treo should just work right out of the box, shouldn't own a Treo..."

    Hey, Deliriums Tremens is a great imported beer too, that would make you see things.

    I've got snap set to the mail button and its set not to disable itself. I snapped a pic of my stopwatch program to see if snap will be fast enough and it cought the exact time of the stopwatch when I pushed the button, so it will be fast enough to catch a shot. It happened 2 more times but I was to spastically excited to push the button fast enough. I mashed down in the general direction of the power button (which snap was set to at the time) and ended up pressing 3 or 4 buttons in a very unskilled drunken-like manner which caused a reset.

    The spider was way cooler than the taxi. It has to be a 3rd party program developer trying to be funny. I hope the bug is not symbolic of the developers intention, a pecursor to a virus.

    It is small enough to not be distinguished as a fake but big enough that you can still see its legs move as it scurries ocross the screen. Its fast enough so that you barely have time to smack the screen but not so fast that it seems unrealistic. It starts from the bottom within a 1/2 inch of the center and ends with in a half inch of center at the top. When you try to smack it as I did the first 2 times and you happen to change the screen it disappears. It moves in a wavey'ish, zigzag'ish pattern exactly like a real spider.

    I'll try to catch a snap.

    What are the newest apps you have installed if it is indeed a third-party app causing it?
    I've heard that polar bear steaks are tough, but maybe if you marinated them in beer they'd turn out all right.

    Sounds like you have a virus.
    Palm V-->Visor Deluxe-->Visor Prism-->Visorphone-->Treo 180-->Treo 600-->Treo 650 on Sprint-->Treo 700p-->Centro-->Diamond-->Pre-->HTC EVO 4g???!

    The only thing I've done in the last few days was zero out reset, reformat my card and download the latest versions of my applications.

    Since I just updated everything then all of it is new, I have more applications than humanly possible. I have been a PDA junkie for over a decade.

    Some one has some splannin to do lucy.

    Marc was it you?

    Jeff?

    Radoslaw Nowak did you stick that in hi-launcher?

    It's a Hi launcher thing. I have seen it a few times.

    Hi Launcher caused a few crashed so I switched to Zlauncher. I still like the windows menu though.

    It does seem to only pop up when using hi-launcher.

    Its pretty neat to see it run across the screen, I guess I won't worry about it if ransoft put it there. I have been using their software for years and have never had any trouble. I have done a lot of beta testing with them, the're great.

    If you mean how I took the bugs picture, I did it with snap http://www.shareup.com/Snap_for_Palm...oad-34547.html

    If you mean how did I see him, it was very noticeable. I'm amazed how real looking it is when its in motion.

    Definitely a Hi-Launcher thing.
    I see it if my launcher menu stays up for about 1 minute.

    I thought it was a real bug the first time I saw it too.
    I tried to squash it with my thumb and then got worried because i thought the damn thing wa IN my Treo.

    Then I came to my senses.
