Editor's Message

The HP Palmtop continues to live on in spite of its official demise. I'm reminded of the proclamation: "The King is dead. Long live the King."

 Several Palmtop users have moved on to other handheld machines for whatever reason. Their Palmtops are now in the hands of people who have yet to discover the advantages of the HP Palmtop. The new users have stuffed my e-mail box with all the typical beginners' questions such as how to reset the Palmtop without pulling the batteries (CTRL + LeftShift + ON and answer No). It's easy to respond to such calls for help and to give encouragement.

 Veteran users of the Palmtop continue to use their machines in a variety of situations. See Wayne Kneeskern's article on how he used the Palmtop to keep track of his battle with cancer.

Other veteran Palmtop users have coupled their machines with a variety of electronic devices such as GPS monitors (see Mr. Bev Howard's article in this issue) cellphones, 56K PC Card modems, insulin monitoring devices, etc., and have taken their systems into the current millennium. I can't count the number of e-mails I get requesting help with these latest external devices. Since I don't have any of the extra devices at my disposal, I'm at a loss to answer these calls for help. The best that I can do is to refer the questioners to the HPLX-L mailing list where the veteran users hang out. For a small sample of the information that appears on the HPLX-L mailing list, see the "HPLX-L Connection" article in this issue of PTP.

In his User to User column, Hal Goldstein discusses the Palm PDAs and the forthcoming Windows CE handheld. He points out their plusses and minuses and comes back to his HP 200LX with its long battery life and trusted familiarity.

The "Through the Looking Glass" article is about how to acquire an out-of-production Windows CE subnotebook and my reactions to its quirks and limitations as well as its nicer features. My hunch is that the IBM z50 WinCE computer is a machine that was put together by a committee. For me it is not a viable option but my wife seems to like it.

If you have an idea for an article you'd like to see in an upcoming issue of The HP Palmtop Paper, please let me know. We'd love to hear from you, our loyal readers.
