I learned repeatedly that it worked when my Palm m100 would lose its 
memory whenever I changed it's AA batteries.

I thereafter learned that KPilot's restore feature works slightly less 
well when I replaced the m100 with a Zire 21 whose memory can get 
knocked out by strong cell-phone signals.

I now keep the Zire in a farraday cage made of tin foil and duct tape. 
(And everybody laughs to see such a sight.)
