As I was waiting for my calendar to load on my Treo this morning to check my availability for an appointment, I had a moment of longing for the paper planner I used to use. No waiting for my Treo to crash, reboot, and connect. No tedious flipping through screens. Just open to the right page, check availability, and scribble a note.

On the other hand, it is awfully hard to back up paper, which is why I will not go back. And if you don’t have the paper calendar with you, you cannot use it. I am famous for leaving things lying around, so I need to be able to pick up where I left off with as little downtime as possible. And I love being able to access my calendar from any computer or phone anywhere in the world. Makes the waiting worthwhile, in the end.
