Good-bye AvantGo

One of my favorite features on my handheld computer is, or rather was, avantgo. It is a program that downloads customized news and information onto my handheld computer from the Internet. I've enjoyed having trivia, my local weather forecasts, and the current news right on my handheld computer. I even recently signed up to get short stories downloaded into the thing too.

Anyway, I haven't been able to sync avantgo since last Friday ["Unknown Error during processing - AvantGo Connect synchronization failed -"AvantGo Connect" failed (error = #4096)]. I've tried everything from tweaking the settings (recommended in avantgo's help files for error #4096) to resorting to a clean install of the avantgo software with no luck.

It's to the point that it just isn't worth it. It hogs my handheld's memory, which I didn't mind when I had fresh reading material daily, but for 3 days in a row now I haven't been able to connect.

I've given up on the problem, but I'll give it till tomorrow to "self-correct" then I'm deleting the whole thing.
