Self-correcting bug: My script for transfer of diary entry from Palm would overwrite an old entry rather than create a new one, so the entry in which I posted the code got overwritten. Hopefully nobody copied the old code before it Darwinized itself. I'll edit the old entry with corrected code.

My hosting provider is lame. JServ has not been running for some time. They never got back to me on any bug reports. I would finally phone them days later to get the latest promise. Now they say they're moving to JRun. We'll see. Meanwhile, the only place where I can demo BRL is BRL Cabaret. This is a free service shared by thousands of other apps, and the entire BRL environment gets unloaded after a short period of inactivity. This makes the first page load exceptionally slow. For now I'll wait and see how things go with my regular provider. If it doesn't improve I'll have to consider paying more than $17.95/month for servlet+db hosting.
