So, my new watch comes with a 33-page instruction manual. Every page critical in its use.

Holy crapoli.

It's the Timex Ironman USB Datalink. They call it a PDA for your wrist. The 33 pages are for the manual operations of entering data on the watch. The software for the USB-interface has its own manual.

Damn.

What the heck. I need something to do on Wild Card Sunday.

1. That's going to take more than a wild card Sunday!

I hope it's worth it to you.

3. Well, I have trouble keeping my complex calendar in my head ... and my PDA (which is also my Treo) is great, but if I miss the alarm for a meeting because the Treo is in its dock while I'm in the can or down the hall or whatever, then its a problem.

In other words, yes -- it's going to take a while to learn how to use, and I hope it's worth it.

5. I have a ten-plus year old Tag Heuer chronograph....

Love it because it is familiar, small, waterproof to 28 meters, and dependable. Yet, I rarely think to look at (or occasionally adjust) the little calendar window... For me, a watch is a watch (and jewlery, I suppose). Digital readouts are like white background noise to me...

Enjoy though... I DO like gadgets and gizmos-- just not on my wrist.

On edit, do report back how long it takes you to 'learn the ropes.' I still haven't learned all the ins and outs of my cell phone (pocket pc) or even my blackberry for work... I should take the time to learn how to really use at least one thing I own! LOL

6. LOL! Great post. 

I will get back...

So far, I've learned how to use the alarms.

2. Casio G Shock

You could have gone with a Casio G Shock. Solar powered, atomic clock time setting, a lazy mans dream.

Still a thick users manual though.

4. Those are beautiful watches, no doubt. 

But, I need at least 8 alarms that I can set each day.

7. I have a Ironman datalink

The one in the software picture. The software isn't too difficult to use, and it holds a ton of data. I love mine, I often say everything I know is in my watch. This is my second datalink, I have a older one, the kind you hold facing the computer and the data transfers in a bar code fashion.

Oh yeah, Where did you get yours?

8. If you ever find yourself at the bottom of a lake, you'll be glad first that the watch still works and then that you know how it works! =)

Oh...it's not a divers' watch? Nevermind.

The above's the whole campfire on Skins's island, but something bothers me.

If someone needs at least eight alarms a day, for whatever reason, might this not be a symptom of forgetfulness, which is a symptom of.....?

They all seem to be somehow involved in the nefarious pursuit of business.

Frank, while you may be right about it being a symptom of ...?, I think it's actually more likely  a way for Buzzy to delude himself into thinking he's important and relevant to life outside his Mom's basement.  :noranger:

Do you really need an alarm to remind you to eat cheetos and hit the refresh button while logged on to DU?

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle

Personally, I see the thread as his attempt to show how busy and important he is to all his DUmmie buddies.  And he can't just have a day planner like the normal people, he has to have a watch that doubles as a PDA, which will alert him of urgent matters 8 times a day!  :mental:

Well, it IS the DU we're talking about here...

Some of their membership needs an alarm that goes "Breath IN .........Breathe OUT" .
