Pondering the Imponderable

Much to my surprise, the starter toner cartridge on my printer is almost dead. The instructions say that it should be good for 1,000 pages at 5% coverage, but the page count hasn't even reached 500 yet. Well, I found out that 5% coverage is equal to double-spaced text with a 12 point font. Most, if not all, of the documents I print have considerably more text than that. At least I know that it's still better than 1/2 as cheap per page as my old ink jet. For now, I'm giving it a couple shakes every page or two and having it print dark to get every last bit of toner out. Hopefully, the full cartridge (3,000 pages) will last me a year and a half or so.

Pondering the Imponderable

Now that I've gotten this fit of writing out of my system, I can get back to some "real" work. By the way, I'm sure we can all look forward to new articles from The Master and J.t.Qbe sometime in the summer of 2017. In unrelated news, I wish AvantGo would stop updating their client for PalmOS 5 every day or so. I can't even tell what they are fixing. I wish they would fix the bug that causes the main channel listing page to be stuck at a width of 160 pixels even on a 320 pixel device.

I just found out that my installing Jedi Academy in WineX HOWTO has become an official part of Transgaming's FAQ for the game. It's always nice to know that people find the stuff you write to be helpful.

Review of the Palm Tungsten E PDA

After reading the specs and some reviews of Palm's new Tungsten E PDA, I decided to get one for myself. What led me to that decision? What features did I find to be irresistable? Now, just over a week later, am I happy with my rather rash decision to run out and buy one? Wonder no longer! Read my review of the Tungsten E and find out for yourself!
