Distracted by PP Applets

Whilst working on D-Pod and trying to add some new functionality it's very easy for me to get sidetracked and end up going down what seem at the time to be good ideas, but what eventually turn out to be blind alleys. In fact this seems to be a bit of a template for me in a number of areas!

PP Armlets is one such area. What are they? Good question. They're a way of writing very small bits of code of Palm OS that can be access via an iziBasic program. I sort of dabbled with these a long time ago in an attempt to do something like a synth on a palm device and I've been lured back towards them again in an attempt to make something more musical than I've managed to do in the past.

I suppose that it isn't necessarily a bad thing overall, but it can and probably will get in the way of finishing anything. So, why am I telling you this? Well, if you'd hoped to see an update to this app then it might take a bit longer. I might learn something useful, but I don't hold out too much hope that I'll manage to achieve my goal of getting these armlets to actually work in the way I want.

We'll see.
