Daily Cryptogram (Palm OS) - Everyone needs a break now and then. Taking a break from the stresses of work can rejuvenate the brain, allowing you to more efficiently move onto the next task that your boss tosses your way. Periodic breaks can actually make you a more productive employee.
With the Daily Cryptogram you can put your computer and/or PDA to work for your brain cells instead of against them. Once loaded, it will provide you with an instant diversion when you mind starts to become overloaded with the day`s stresses. Anytime you want or need, you can take two minutes for a mental diversion; two minutes to concentrate on something fun and unrelated to work.
Each Daily Cryptogram is a famous quotation where each letter has been replaced with another unique letter throughout the entire puzzle. You need to use letter frequencies and common word patterns to deduce the original quote.
Here is an example (the answer is given below):

Every revolutionary idea seems to evoke three stages of reaction. They may be summed up by the phrases: (1) It's completely impossible -- don't waste my time; (2) It's possible, but it's not worth doing; (3) I said it was a good idea all along.
~ Arthur C. Clarke
