I use the Palm also, but with Mobipocket instead of cachemate. For a few blissful weeks I had a Tungsten E2 that I bought new because I had fantasies of doing email and lots of other stuff. But the car was broken into and it was stolen before I could get around to it. They left cash & credit cards, a cell phone and the GPSr, but took the Palm. I'm still hoping they will pawn it or something stupid because it had identifying marks along with the serial number.
Anyway, I replaced it with a Palm M500 that was offered to me for $25.00 by someone from the GC.com forum. Once you go paperless, it is very hard to go back. I get very antsy waiting for paper to print, and I like to take a lot of pages with me so I can pick and choose when I get there. With the Palm, you can take 500 caches quicker than you can print one. I have forgotten how cachemate works, but with Mobi you can't see the hint accidentally. I try not to use the hint, except in Minnesota where we were being competitive.
