Here is my story. I don't think a palm has already
endured such a torture...
I got my Palm IIIxe as a present and it has become
rapidly essential to me. All my stuff are in there, phone
numbers, addresses, meetings etc etc.
Well, one day, I went with my girlfriend to water the
plants at my parent's house. So we went there. Then back
home. A few hours later, I was looking for my palm and
couldn't find it. I looked everywhere. No Palm in sight.
Then I thought I had left it at my parent's place. We
drove back there, looked everywhere. Still no Palm.
I was really trying to remember where I left it but
couldn't. I had one last chance to find it: my Palm was also my
alarm clock and did beep every morning at 07.00 for 2
minutes. I phoned my parents who were back and asked them to
listen carefully at 07.00 the next day if they could hear
my lost Palm. I did the same at home. So every single day that week, I used to wake up at 06.55, go in a room and wait until the fatidic 07.00. My parents did the same. And every day, we used to do that in an different room.
Until one day, actually 6 days after I had lost it, I
heard a barely audible beep in the kitchen. I was so
happy. But still couldn't find it. I looked everywhere in
the kitchen after work. So I waited one more day.
On the next morning, I woke up again at 06.55, went with
my girlfriend in the kitchen and waited. And again the
desperately wanted beep.
So we are there, both trying to find out where it came
from. Suddenly, my girlfriend turned around. She was facing...
She opened the door and there it was! Under a pile of
vegetables. My Palm was still happily beeping and
everything was working perfectly.
Actually, when we were at my parent's house, I did some
tyding up with my stuff and did put my palm in a bag. And
my girlfriend used the same bag to put some vegetables.
Which ended up in the fridge.
Since then, my Palm is still happy and continues to beep
at 07.00 every morning!
