Thanks for the recommendation, harlan. I can finally see it at:


The only problem is that it requires OS X. I have Mac OS 9 at work, but all
my personal boxes run Linux, so I might have to borrow a more modern Mac
from a friend. What I have in mind is a one-time conversion of DateDB.pdb
(around 60KB) to iCal/vCal, which I can then import into an alternative
tool. I want to try the Nokia 770 when it gets PIM.

With a Palm handheld, it often seems like use of a Mac (or even Windows)
makes life easier. KOrganiser does not integrate with KPilot and the
handheld as seamlessly as it should. Maybe my installation is misconfigured.
