    Anyone have a plan for 2032, palm-wise?

    I assume some people still on these palm boards are hoping to keep going with the Palm as long as possible (meaning they are, like me, the "palm guy" in their circles). Just for fun, I tried setting my date/time to December 31, 2031 at 11:59 PM. Thought maybe it would go back to January 1, 1932 or something. The device's clock simply STOPPED at 11:59:59. Obviously this is in the ROM. If I can't keep running my Palm into the 2030s, I'm going back to pen and paper. :D But I'm hoping that SOMEONE smarter than me comes up with a solution. They have 16 years.

    I'm curious about your experiment. Even though the clock stopped advancing, did you still have functional access to data input for previous years? I'm wondering about having access to Calendar entries for the last decades. My record keeping goes back to 2003 and I can search DateBk6 for any entry that I need to see, including Personal Journal entries. If that ability goes away, I'm toast. Having to rely on my own memory alone is less accurate because the lelisa13p Mental File Cabinet is getting pretty full. I put new stuff into the front of the drawer and other stuff just falls out the back. :vbtongue:

    On 1/1/2032, just set the calendar to 1/1/1920 and you should be fine. I think all the dates are the same. :newpalm:

    I would be more amazed if you could still find batteries to run Palm devices in 16 years...that's a looooong time to go.

    Finding the past year to use for spoofing 2032? I Googled "calendar years that match 2032" and got this list.

    1920 is an idea, although it would require a lot of basic mental math... I'll be pushing 60 in 2032. :)

    And don't worry about batteries. I'll have batteries...

    We'll all likely have some body parts that'll be running on batteries by that time. :vbeek: :vbtongue:

    Some of us are already there. My--ummm--"bionic ears" have been battery-powered for two years now.
