Discovery

Last night, I figured out why my PDA crashed Monday night. WordtoGo can only handle files below a certain size. When I exceeded that size, as I did both nights, kaboom!

Of course, the way I exceeded it the second time was by rewriting the part of the story I hadn't backed up the first time. Also, I wasn't home at the time.

When I got home, I resyncked and then started a new file. After writing it twice already, writing it a third time was easy, and I'm nearly caught up. And, of course, I think it's better. From now on, when a WordToGo file reaches around 10K words, I'm going to continue in a different file.

Yow.

Is this documented?

I'll need to accquaint drcpunk with this fact, since I think we've crashed her pda the same way.

Documented? I haven't checked, but I should.

(For the record, it's a PalmOne Tungsten C.)

It's that I was doing the same thing and had reached the same point both times the pda crashed. jonbaker thinks it's a reasonable guess. As you can believe, I really don't want to test it again.

If I were you, I would start the new file at about 8K words, just to be certain...
