    I know there are ways to move to a new Palm and ways to move to a new computer, but what is the recommended procedure for doing both at once? I need to move
    Message 1 of 11 , Jun 1, 2006
      I know there are ways to move to a new Palm and ways to move to a new
      computer, but what is the recommended procedure for doing both at once?

      I need to move all my Palm data to a new Palm and all my hard drive
      programs and info to a new computer. I've done both of these things
      before, but never at the same time. In the past, I've always been able
      to sync to one or the other after the transfer.

      What's the easiest/best way to do this?

      Should I build the new laptop first, including installing Palm Desktop
      and other programs, then start building the Palm?

      Am I looking at completely reinstalling pTools and all the preferences,
      or can that copy across?

      Palm: moving from a Tungsten T to a Zire 72
      Computer: moving from WinXP Pro Thinkpad T23 to WinXP Pro Thinkpad T43

      Thanks for any help/suggestions/advice you can give.

      Hi Ken: QUESTION #1. Are both Palms available? Is the old one still fully functional? QUESTION #2. Will the old Palm go to Palm heaven and will the new Palm
      Message 2 of 11 , Jun 1, 2006
        Hi Ken:

        QUESTION #1. Are both Palms available? Is the old one still fully functional?

        QUESTION #2. Will the old Palm go to Palm heaven and will the new Palm
        inherit the HotSync name of the old one?

        QUESTION #3 & #4. Analogous issues about the old/new computers.

        If the answer is yes to all, then the process will be practically obvious and
        the order in which you do DeskTop/Palm is irrelevant.

        E.g., with the Palm. Backup old, hard reset new, hotsync new, lock up old
        into your vault and never look at it again.

        Good luck!

        All=my=best, Paul

              Google "define: rsvp"

              Resource Reservation Protocol. Protocol that supports the reservation of
              resources across an IP network. Applications running on IP end systems can
              use RSVP to indicate to other nodes the nature (bandwidth, jitter, maximum
              burst, and so forth) of the packet streams they want to receive. RSVP depends
              on IPv6. Also known as Resource Reservation Setup Protocol.

              Just kiddin'

              It really means...Ooops....I forgot...I wasted my 2 years in Paris in the

                It was meant to be "e.g.". Really. Think about it. Palm and DeskTop. I talk
                about the Palm as an example.

                          Which do you use? We're an Outlook shop at the office, and have
                          Barracuda appliances installed with an Outlook plugin to update the
                          filters. Works pretty well, and I don't normally see Viagra spam. I
                          do get a lot of penny stock stuff, though that's beginning to decline
                          as the Barracudas get trained.

                          I also run a free, open source spam filter called SpamBayes, from
                          http://spambayes.sourceforge.net It's written in Python, and can be
                          installed as an Outlook plugin (default), or as a proxy server between
                          your mail feed and your email client if you don't use Outlook. I've
                          been *very* happy with it.

                          The only problem with the office setup is that I have a Blackberry,
                          and I think the Blackberry redirector sees and forwards the mail
                          before Barracuda does... :-(

                          A few years back, before we got the Barracudas, I had a maddening
                          problem. One of our clients was sending data to us for a project we
                          were doing for them as PGP encrypted attachments to email. On a
                          random basis, their email was simply disappearing. No error messages
                          on either end, but no email either. I wound up setting up an FTP site
                          as an alternate delivery mechanism for them.

                          We finally found out what had happened. We had installed a spam
                          filter for email (because *one* user had screamed about spam). The
                          spam filter was randomly deciding that something in the client email
                          met its definition of spam and was quarantining the messages, but not
                          telling anyone it had done so. Once the mail admin looked at the
                          quarantine folder, there were all of the missing emails from the
                          client...

                          All I could do was laugh when I heard about it.
