I appear to have signed up to do this: The Commando Challenge in October; with peoples from work; assuming I’m still here.

If anyone wants to sponsor me, that’d be cool, I think we’re doing it for Berkshire Air Ambulance; but I’m not certain. I needed an excuse to get fit, and I’ve just given myself one.

In other news, the iPaq continues it’s run of attrocicity. Microsoft Mobile looks altogether more attrocious each time I used it. Yesterday it crashed and properly locked up while I was setting the ‘phone number’ field, and required a reset – thus losing all the software. Well, I say ‘thus’; it was ‘backed up’ using it’s convenient ‘compact flash backup’ – but that appeared to have missed out some vital DLLs and restoring from the backup resulted an an iPaq that crashed and popped up little error messages every few seconds… Garnering another reset.

Having dinked with it before bed this morning it appears to be working again. I did take it to work before it crashed and it was entertainingly GPSy. It is, as far as I’m concerned, a deep shame that you can’t get modern maps for it. When it’s installed and working the rest of the software works fine. I’m tempted to dink with NavIt.
