I can't have nice things.
I bought a no-name 4GB SD card for my Treo 700p, and it's really flaky: at somewhat random (but frequent) times, it makes the "you just ejected the card!" noise, and then I have to pop it out and back in again to get it to be recognised. I think maybe it only does this when it's not being accessed, e.g., as soon as I stop playing music and/or the device goes to sleep, it unmounts the card. I haven't had it do it while listening to music, but then as soon as I pause and the phone goes idle, blam.
The card seems to work fine when I plug it into a USB reader on my Mac. I also tried reformatting it. Some googling suggests that there are people out in the world successfully using 4GB FAT32 SD cards with the Treo 700p. Palm's site says they "have not tested" 4GB cards, though.
So is there some less sketchy 4GB card I should buy instead? Or does this trick just not work?
Update: Bought a Transcend 4GB. Works fine.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the DNA Lounge Kitchen is now open for business!
We're not serving full meals yet; our initial menu consists of nachos, quesadillas, and rice krispy treats. See, we've got a pretty decent menu planned out, but to buy the additional equipment needed to make that food, not to mention stocking the food itself, is gonna cost a few thousand dollars, which we don't have. So we finally said, "fuck it, let's see what we can do with a hundred bucks and just get this thing open." So Chef Sundance is up there making nachos for you all. Head up and say hi...
It's up on the balcony, on the other side of the room from coat check.
In less good news, we had no webcast on Thursday or Friday because our other Soundweb blew up. Soundweb, as those of you who have been reading for a while will recall, is the (pair of) computers/appliances that run our entire sound system. One of the pair died almost exactly a year ago, and we replaced it, but the second one died yesterday.
We've yet to be able to find a replacement, so the sound system is current being held together with chewing gum and strong language. A side effect of this is: no webcast. Oh, and a second side effect is that it's going to cost us like another five grand.
Imagine my joy.
