Misnomers by diletants

You may remember that I am not particularly happy about Palm. Well, the problem was a PEBCAK, but not one to go uncommented.

When I got the device this spring, I remember using my brother's XP machine to install an update for the Tungsten T5. The update comes in form of a ROM Updater (what does ROM stand for again?), and it spat words like EEPROM and flashing all over the screen while it was doing it's thing.

Am I the only one to assume that a hard reset should not undo a ROM update? Well, it did, so when my brother accidentally hard-reset my Palm and my problems started a couple of weeks ago, I simply forgot to re-update my ROM.

Problem solved now, martin happy to have his T5 back.
