And there was much rejoicing.
As you may recall from my May 30th weblog post, Killing My Clié, that I'd managed to do some serious damage to my beloved Sony Clié N610.
Well, I have some very, very good news: Dr. Dan Royea, Palm OS Hardware Wizard Extraordinaire has shown his quality! He has successfully merged my old Clié N610's screen with the working guts of Craig Froehle's wife's Clié N610 (which had a busted screen). Dr. Dan emailed me this morning with the good news, from the recovery ward at St. Royea's Hospital for Wayward Handhelds.
There are however, two very minor caveats:
1. The Windex spot of residue will remain under the touch screen, but this should be no problem as it doesn't effect the touch screen's operation. In fact, this little spot should act as a good reminder to not to mess around with miniature hardware and of Dan's wizardry.
2. I'll lose my 16MB RAM upgrade, performed late last year by STNE Corp. I can certainly live with 8MB for now, but that extra 8MB will be missed. It'll be something to look forward to in the next handheld, whenever that comes. Still this is a very minor point.
So, this is very good news!! The operation will save money, important now that we're feeding a very hungry little 7 month old boy. My eternal gratitude goes to Dan Royea for his work. I know he'll be pleased knowing another of his 'patients' will live happily ever after. :-)
