Dropping My Palm

I dropped my Palm Pilot VII this morning, in a fit of clumsiness. It was outside of its carrying case, and the crash and clatter of the device as it hit my kitchen tile was scary. The stylus, batteries, and battery cover were separated quite dramatically.

So this is the part where I say that I haven't synchronized the contents of my Palm Pilot since March 22. I was worried that it wouldn't even turn on.

Quickly, I put it all back together. And in amazement, it worked! Hurray! The Palm Pilot case is remarkably sturdy. David Pogue in PalmPilot: The Ultimate Guide, 2nd Edition says "The glass screen, the electronics inside, and the dark-gray case usually withstand desk-height drops." Definitely.
