I broke K's PDA. She asked me to crack it open to replace the battery. Unfortunately, in doing so I must have fouled up the connection to the IR receiver, because her wireless keyboard no longer worked. So I cracked it open again today. And the IR receiver snapped right off the motherboard.
She's getting a new Palm tomorrow... this was definitely NOT a purchase we were looking to make this month.
On the other hand, I guess I have another toy on which to try to install Linux.
