big red X

Brick

Well, at least my PDA is still under warranty. I have no idea why it is now refusing to complete any boot whatsoever, but it's obviously totally fucked. I'll give it one more try when I get back to my apartment, and try re-flashing the operating system, but if even a clean boot won't save it (the equivalent of an automatic FORMAT C: and reset, leaving only the OS region intact), I have little hope becuase the OS region must have gotten corrupted, or there's some form of hardware failure. Flash burnout wouldn't surprise me, considering how Windows Mobile 5 does everything in Flash, but the PDA was designed for WM2003.

At least I've got a warranty, and even if that doesn't pan out, I'll be taking class notes on my new Tablet PC anyway.

Assaulted Battery

...Or maybe my PDA just managed to drain its battery, AGAIN, to just the wrong point where it gave strange crash-like symptoms on boot instead of gracefully failing to turn on. It's okay, apparently, although I do wonder why it keeps doing that.
