A few more thoughts about 2019

I've been thinking a lot about what Palmorama will be this year. Whilst in some ways you could argue that, against all the odds, there is something new happening in the world of Palm. It isn't actually very "Palm" oriented. The owners of the Palm brand hasn't (at least in my opinion) made something that continues the line of Palm in a meaningful way. I would have liked them to do something that took forward the legacy of Palm and took it into new directions. Sadly, they didn't. I think it was a shame.

There are a few things that are of interest, not many, but a few. But is that enough to keep going? Is that enough to keep a blog going? Maybe.

Of course there's plenty to look back on from the golden days of the Palm era, and I think that I've done a fair amount of that over the last few years. It's fun, but, after this long it is also quite possibly enough looking back. Or at least it feels that way.

So where does that leave us?

Well, there's still a lot that I could do in terms of the Palm Library. I'm sure that I still have a load more apps that could be uploaded. So that's one thing.

And what about the apps I'd started making for Palm OS? That is another potential. I have started many many apps over the years. Sadly I haven't finished very many at all. I always intend to go back to several of them, but finding the time isn't easy. Maybe this year will be different. I don't know as yet.

The biggest area, and the area I still haven't cracked, is making a Palm PDA work for me now. I do have a couple of new ideas for this, but again, it really isn't so easy at all. I'm hoping to move forward with it, but it may take time, and also, it may go in directions you might not expect.

I think that for now we'll just have to see how things unfold this year. There isn't really any other way.
