Microsoft file extensions?

Errr.... what is a microsoft file extension? Are they talking 8.3 extensions or what? Did Microsoft invent this file format?

I believe that just allows the Palm to read files created on the CompactFlash units by Microsoft-compatible devices

In my limited (22 yrs) experience with various computers, Windows was the first OS extension to REQUIRE a datafile filename extension to identify the application used to open it.

"...CompactFlash can hold up to 300 megs."

I don't know if that is silicon or if they mean the IBM Microdrive, which is (I believe) *340* megs (and, yes, it *can* be used on the TRGPro!). I am amazed at the price -- $329! I hope that is for *one* unit, and not $329 in quantities of 500+! I will not wait for a Visor; I will get this one. mc

The Visor is shipping now (finally) and the TRGPro may be out by the end of the year. If your that impatient, get a Visor or a Palm whatever.

Impatient?! I have less that 140K free RAM on my P3! It's my DATA that is forcing me to be impatient! I need more RAM! (No, I will not get a Vx!) (What does this matter to you, anyway?) mc

I have about 35k free on my P3, I can't even sync
with AvantGo anymore unless I clean out some files or my mail. Hopefully my Visor will arrive this week! 340 megs does sound nice though...
