fucking Palm

Dear Lazyweb,

Since restoring my iMac from backup, every time I try to sync my iMac and my Treo, it says something along the lines of, "Syncing with phone will change more than 5% of your Calendars on this computer. Add: 1158. Delete: 0. Modify: 3. Ok?" And sure enough, if I say "Ok" it duplicates every event in my iCal. Each time.

I think I want to just tell the computer, "blow away what's on the Palm and treat what's on the computer's copy as the ultimate authority." How do I do that?

Update: "iSync / Devices / Reset All Devices" sounded promising, but it just caused the Treo to start rebooting every time it tried to sync the calendar. So I did a memory-wiping hard-reset of the device (hold down Off for ~10 seconds while pressing the reset button by the battery) and that let it reinstall everything. (Except that for some reason, Snapper Mail made me re-enter my account info). So, it's fixed now... for now.

Update 2: The new version of Missing Sync is out now, and comes with its own conduit that fixes most of the complaints I had about fields not being synchronized. To get it to install I had to go through the "reset the device, reinstall Snapper" dance again, but now there's a lot more data in my phone's address book and calendar, which is very nice.

Henry Rollins tomorrow

It has only just come to my attention that Henry Rollins is doing his spoken word stand-up comedy routine on Tue Nov 8 at the Palace of Fine Arts. Highly recommended: he is quite possibly the funniest man alive. Certainly the funniest man with the largest neck. The tickets I just bought ended up in the very last row, so hurry. (Alas, it's TicketBastard.)
