You can get the manual there too.
Someone else did the install, and it does not set the Local directory
correctly in the Registry, so to complete the install one must download
and run "FixInstall.mxe" from the same page. Works just dandy. And with
the auto-cofiguring macros ("Modular Macros") I've made available,
information can be pushed to e-mail, Palm Desktop, word processors, or
just about anything.

You can see how I wish I could do some of this stuff with another PIM
(ideally Chandler, eventually).
All of this is free, so I'm not exactly advertising anything. Cheers.
