In late December 2001, I bought a Handspring Visor Prism. Having been an enthusiastic computer programmer for over twenty years, my next step was (naturally) to download the SDK and begin writing programs for my new toy. The programs on these pages were written for my own use; if for some bizarre reason you find them useful or entertaining, then you're welcome to them. All of the applications (and various other files) on these pages are freeware, though if you happen to enjoy them, an email to that effect would be nice.
