Default Old age

My trusty Z712 has begun to show its first sign of old age. It's forgetting its date & time every time I change the battery, however quickly I do it. I expect its capacitor has failed. Curiously, all other settings are retained, so they must be separately powered, or in some non-volatile sort of memory.

It's not a problem, as it takes me about 10 seconds to reset the clock, and the battery doesn't need changing very often. I always have two fully charged spares to hand.

But I expect I'll graduate permanently to the Z1012 in due course, and put up with its few extra millimetres and grams. It fits in the same little bag.
