Wow, quite a response! Within minutes I had my first reply and by this morning, 5 people with various devices to offer to us. Amazing!
In the end we've decided on a Zire 72 being offered by reader Fazal Majid. Gail is very excited about having a camera-enabled device for capturing photos of our Son.
(If someone out there is looking for a Zire 71, Tungsten E or Tungsten T3 offered by one of the folks above, drop me a line and I'll help connect you.)
In the end, I'm very encouraged about web-citizens. I deal with comment spam, trackback spam, email spam and everything else bad web-citizens do — it's refreshing to see the positive side of web folks so personally.

Ugh. Tonight I discovered my Tungsten E's LCD screen must have been squished earlier today, and is now broken, and leaking.
Dead Tungsten E.
After about an hour of scouring eBay and other sites for deals on a new, used and refurbished Tungsten E, I've decided to try using my blog for finding a potential Palm OS PDA. I figured, why not ask readers if they, or someone they know is moving up to a new PDA, and needs to sell an old device to a good home.
I really like my Tungsten E (well besides the busted screen), though of late I'm using for only a few main reasons: reading news and blogs in iSilo, reading e-books and the Bible, listening to music and podcast MP3s, checking my contacts and schedule, and a few more small tasks.
My wife has always wanted a Zire 71 or 72, for the camera. Me, I'm just fine with a Tungsten E right now, but either of these would be interesting to us. If we ended up choosing a Zire 71/72, I'd just take Gail's Tungsten E for myself.
