wish, hope, life

Too little, too late.....

I love technology - I have an iPod, a Handspring, a cell phone and a new laptop. They're all great, but.... but I don't really trust them. An errant power surge, dead battery, mechanical glitch and everything goes Poof. So today, armed with gift certificates, I got a nice address book, and I decided to make a hard copy backup.

Turns out my Handspring's batteries were dead, so I put some new ones in, and discovered why I had undertaken this little project - the whole thing had reset itself, top to bottom. And I hadn't bothered to synch the thing because, honestly, I don't use it that often anymore, what with the multifunctionality of my cellphone....

So, my address book a pretty well decimated. I have a few floating around, but not many. So I'm putting out a request:

If you think I should have your contact info - snail address, phone number, all that - please email them to me at mshades at gmail dot com. Also, if you know anyone whose data I should have, sling it over too. Winners get a nice shiny Kyoto postcard. *smile*

Thanks....
