Oh, and that stuff about having a week to change the battery before you lose your data after the screen goes blank; rubbish. :-) Since it's entirely likely that you'll pick a weak passphrase to protect the Palm keyring, if you *DO* change the backup bit on that database, don't sync it at work. Or, leave the backup bit alone, so it doesn't back up on hotsync, but use a third-party backup tool to grab the whole shebang frequently. Yes, I learned this the hard way.
