Oops. Should have typed PDB (as in "DataBase"). Must be a Fruedain slip or a
typing habit.

I am not entirely sure about the Mac (as my wrong pointer to path indicated
*giggle*), but under PalmID, I suspect you will have some more directories,
some of which will be named after the built-in PIM application that they
correspond to. Try looking for that. Otherwise, pull that Apple Sherlock
thingie (I was once an OS 9 person *smile*) and search for a file called
DatebookDB.pdb .

Yes, and you can get the free utility called RFSBackup to copy them all to an
SD card. With a card reader, these will even be readable on your main
workstation. It's a worthwhile thing to explore, trust me.
