I just thought I'd mention that Keyring is far and away the most useful
thing I have ever come across for a handheld computer. I probably use it
about fives time per day on average and keep about 120 passwords in it.

Thanks for writing such useful program and making if free software. I
know what you mean about the lack of free software culture for PalmOS;
it's too bad.
