Need help finding a certain Palm app...

Howdy

I was quite bored, the other day, and decided to take my Handspring Visor apart. I must have dislodged the backup battery as when I put it back together, it had been wiped clean. I was able to restore everything, however, I am having trouble locating one handy program I had.

The program was, I believe, a Hackmaster application... it would pop up the current time, date, todo items, appointments, and battery life, whenever I held down the Calendar button. If my Palm was on and I did this, it would pop up this information as long as I held down the Calendar button. As soon as I released it, it went back to whatever I was doing. If my Palm was off, it would pop this info whenever I held the Calendar button down, adn would then turn off, again, once I let go. It would still let me access my calendar if I just pressed the calendar button...


Does anyone know what this program is and where I can get it? I seached freewarepalm.com to no avail. I'm about to try cnet.

Thanks

Yeah. When I saw the 9 .prc files, I paused, then exited out of WinZip. Haven't installed it yet. Now I'm thinking maybe I don't need it.
