Some days, technology doesn't seem as helpful as it should be.

Yesterday I had to buy a USB to RS-232 adapter for my notebook so that I could reconfigure a brand new temperature monitor.

Yesterday I also got a new PDA. There really is no good way to switch from PalmOS to Windows Mobile. The easy way would be to change palm conduits (did that), and sync to Outlook (did that), but that doesn't help if your WM PDA has Office Mobile without Outlook.

I found a freeware tool that will restore a .CSV database to the new PDA and have transferred the contact list, but I've got to wait until I get home, because I don't have the Palm Desktop add-on at work that will let me export the calendar to a .CSV.

Mobipocket and HandyShopper were easy (there's WM versions of both, and HS uses the original Palm .pdb file with no changes), and the rest is minor accessories and games.

Next I need to figure out how to get all the passwords out of that database.
