A couple days ago a guy on Usenet was saying he had a Tungsten E with a dead screen; since it just uses a mini-USB connector, there was no way to start a HotSync and rescue the data stuck on it.
So I coded up a tiny utility that you can put on a memory card as /Palm/start.prc; when you insert the card, it'll trigger a HotSync.
So, if the Palm has a memory card interface and a dead screen *and* you can't initiate a HoySync any other way, this little program might come in handy.
I call it Seance. ( :-> ) It's free, under the GPL, and available here:
Just thought it might be worth mentioning in the Graveyard since people with dead screens would tend to find your site, and there's a dim chance maybe one person a year would find it useful.
