Short shameful confession / Palm problems solved

I solved my Palm RAM problems. It turns out that the Palm V has about 800K of unused flash memory, because the OS isn’t all that big. By buying a piece of $15 shareware, you can shunt a couple of your honking huge Palm apps into flash, freeing up RAM.

The only problem is, it doesn’t work with all applications. There was no demo available, and I didn’t want to waste $15. So I tracked down a warez copy on a web site, and tried it out. It worked. So I went back to the vendor’s site and bought a copy.

I’m not sure if this makes me a good guy or a bad guy. Do the ends justify the means?
