I recently bought a used Palm IIIe PDA from a friend. After using it for a while, and some trial and error of trying to figure out how to use it, I've finally got the hang of it. Sometimes though, it freezes or gets a major error. In that case, you have to perform a reset (of which there are a few different types). This is done by putting a pin or other skinny object in a tiny hole in the back. I have run into a small problem though. Whenever I need a pin I have to travel to the other side of the house to get one. But no this isn't my major problem, what is if, say I'm driving somewhere and I have to do a reset, I'm stuck helpless. Not a pin or toothpick to be found! So I've come up with an idea. OMG!
(I wrote that entire paragraph on my Palm! :D)
PIN or TOOTHPICK
TAPE, any kind

Step 1: TAPE
Place a piece of tape on the back of the device
Step 2: PIN
Now emo-fy *gasp!* your Palm by stabby-rip-stab-stabbing your palm with the pin. Stick it through the tape until only the head is visible. Yeehaw! You're done. Do you feel special? Now the pin can't fall out. And you'll never be without! :D
