Farewell to Psion

I feel I ought to mark this occasion. Today I have finished migrating off my Psion. This was my third Psion. It still works okay, but the hinges are dodgy, and experience says once the hinges are broken sooner or later it will cease to work. I can't imagine there is anyone in the world who still wants a dodgy Psion 3C or any of its works. So once I had copied the files, I formatted the disks as a gesture to the god of privacy, found the software and manuals, and sorted the whole lot into the appropriate recycling receptacles.

Farewell, thou good and faithful servant. I hope my new Blackberry serves me so well.

I feel as if I should contemplate this moment over a pint of fine ale...

Many thoughts about geographically non-local tribes in an increasingly uncertain world...

I'll join in the contemplation, although my Psion 3(a, in this case) is still working - quite possibly because I don't give it the same heavy daily use as I'd always seen coth giving hers.

But, I know its time shall come, and I'm going to be listening with interest as to how the Blackberry fares in the hands of our LJ host here.

Crazy(this is it, it's time to head for the fridge and a locally brewed beer...)Soph

PS off-topic advertising - could y'all be tempted to a convention in Leuven? You know, it's just the usual "I'm feeling far away from some friends I haven't seen in too blasted long..."

Psions
Hi all,
Saw your Psion thread and had to chime in. I'm a San Francisco area Psion 3mx user and I haven't found anything remotely close to the beloved Psion. Very few people over here have even seen them.

I'll join you in that ale - I'm a home brewer and have a few nice kegs downstairs that I try to ignore!
