So I nearly missed a staff meeting last week, my iPAQ forgot to remind me. In fact it now doesn't bother reminding me about any appointments. To cut a very long and annoying story short it turns out to be a known problem with Microsoft Pocket PC 2003 where in some circumstances alarms don't work. Hold on, this is a PDA, and isn't one of the main functions of a PDA the ability to keep alarms? I'm glad I didn't sell my Palm vX now, looks like I'll be switching back to it.
