Last night, just for grins, I hit the web browser. I nearly fell off the chair when the darn thing connected! I didn't think it would work because I can't make phone calls (the signal is sporadic enough that a regular call drops as soon as I answer - on a good day I can get an entire sentence out... like "hello" before it hangs up).
Since I wasn't expecting a connection I didn't really know what to do at first, so I browsed over to Instapundit's pda page which worked just fine. Then I set up my VPN to work - that will let me use my Treo to download email when I'm on the road... I got right in! Yay!
I nearly set up the email client until I realized I wanted to wait for my expansion card to arrive - I will need to put the mailbox on the expansion card so I don't overload the internal memory. (this would be because I have friends who are very active emailers - it's a wonderful thing, but does take up space).
On checking Amazon tracker - I see that my expansion card is in the state - so I am hopeful I will receive it today or tomorrow. Then I can get the email set and tested. And - even better - start adding pictures to the phone numbers. When a known number calls me - it will display the picture too.
It only takes some little things like this to keep me happily occupied for hours. I can fiddle around with this stuff forever and not get tired of it. I also downloaded some great security software that will allow me to lock things up whenever I need to - or even to remotely send a message and either lock or lock and destroy the data on the Treo. Very cool.
Now if you'll excuse me - I should get back to work. Then I'll do some Sudoku... yes the only game I've downloaded sudoku for palm - where I can mess about with puzzles that are huge time wasters - gotta love it.

Oh yeah, I added another thing to my todo list - hotsync daily. If I lost my PDA now I would have to go curl up in a fetal position in the corner. There would be no recovery. Heh.
