Re: Handpring Visor connects from commandline but not gui

Thanks for the help yesterday with the pilot synching.  I got it working
great.  I got an email from Dagmar d'Surreal suggesting that I was being
thin skinned.  I defended my position I took about your replies but told
him that I would re-read your posts and determine if I was indeed being
thin skinned.  I re-read them and it appears that I think that he was
right.  I think that I was being thin skinned and owe you an apology. 
On re-reading the thread, I feel that I could have mis-read you.  The
comments certainly didn't warrant any concern on my part.  Sorry if I
was being thin-skinned or a wimp about the whole thing.  

Thanks again for the help
