Well I'm taking my "baby steps" in going paper-less. I now have a Palm T/X and I downloaded GSAK. I do have some questions however . . . and these questions are probably pretty stupid, so bear with me.

1) What have you found is the best way to do a pocket query so that you get all of the caches . . . and what is the best way to set it up so that the cache info is "fresh"? I did some pocket queries, but it appears as though the query doesn't contain all of the caches from the time period that I requested (i.e. I'm missing info on some of the caches that I placed even though there is info from other caches placed in the same month.)

2) Really stupid question . . . I have purchased Cachemate . . . now how do I unzip this file and get it on my Palm?

3) For those folks who have wi-fi Palms . . . I have "connected" to a wi-fi source, but no website info appears on the screen and I get a message saying I cannot connect to my e-mail . . . any help here would be appreciated.

4) I had an unpleasant experience of scrapping about a dozen notes after inputting the info into the Palm . . . and then I hot-synced and lost all of the calendar info (the tasks and memo info was OK though.) Is there a way to automatically back up this info on to the desktop . . . now I'm always very leary of hot syncing since I fear losing all of the info that I've inputted and to tell you the truth I keep putting more and more info on the Palm . . . it's kind of nice to not have to walk around with a pocket calendar and a dozen scraps of paper with notes scribbled on them.

Again, any help for this newbie (when it comes to paperless caching) would be much appreciated.

You should have someone meet up with you and help. What your asking isn't very hard but doing it through the forums may be difficult.

We're new at cachemate and using a palm Z22 - google your question and check the FAQ's. There's a lot of good info out there. Share cool stuff you find out OK?
