The Missing Sync Syncs Great

10/03/06 | by JAdP | Categories: Computers and Internet

The Missing Sync by Mark/Space provides more complete and additional conduits to sync up Palm Applications with MacOSX applications. The PalmOS HotSync conduits only go to the Palm Desktop, losing synchronization with Address Book, and thus Mail.app [anyone want to rewrite Thunderbird as a plug-in for the Palm Desktop?]; the Mac iSync conduits doesn't sync all the information between iCal and Address Book on the Mac side with the corresponding application on the Palm. There is no equivalent to Memos on the Mac. There isn't a native AvantGo conduit. The Missing Sync solves all these issues, and more, with these conduits.

  • Backup,
  • Install,
  • Lifedrive Backup,
  • Mark/Space Conduit for AvantGo [which I've used for years, but doesn't have it's own conduit for Mac],
  • Mark/Space Conduit for iTunes [syncs playlists, but not protected m4p tunes purchased from Apple],
  • Mark/Space Contacts,
  • Mark/Space Events,
  • Mark/Space Folder Sync,
  • Mark/Space MemoPad [with a corresponding desktop application on the Mac],
  • Mark/Space Photos [to sync with the included Spashphoto.prc]
  • Mark/Space Tasks,
  • Note Pad,
  • Time Copy [Update handheld clock by sync'g with the Mac's clock],
  • Voice Memo

I had some initial problems with Missing Sync and an ongoing issue. Initially, my 10 years worth of memos [what!?!] wouldn't sync with the Mark/Space MemoPad application on the Mac; actually, it sync'd, then erased all memos, then wouldn't sync again. Now, my first sync fails in one of three ways, each of which requires me to "Force Quit" Missing Sync, restart it, and sync again. The second sync works great.

Missing Sync support, in the form of Mike, and now Dave, has been great. [I've been told that Pete and Catherine, their manager, are equally wonderful.] Given the testing protocol that I've been asked to perform, I am thinking of signing up Mark/Space for a testing contract. &#59;)

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
