Thanks, Dean.  Actually, I can't even sync mobileorg. When I try
(Pressing the sync button in the upper right corner), I get:

*Error downloading checksums*

An error was encountered while downloading checksums.dat from the
server. The file isn't required, but the error received was unusual. The
error was:

Unexpected error

I don't know what that's about, but I can't get past it.
