Nasty metal detector

Maybe this is old news, but for all of you that frequently travel and have to pass through those nasty metal detectors at the airport-BEWARE...

After several repeated trips, I noticed that my Palm III seemed to have memory lapses and had to be 'hard reset' frequently. This woudn't normaly be a problem, if I had the opportunity to Hot Sync prior to going down-but it resulted in lots of lost data.

I'd suggest all of you frequent flyers hand your Palms to the attendant and not pass them through the metal detector.....or else, one day when you really need that data, you too will experience the 'Dead Palm'.
