Emate stylus wanted

Hi,

My 18 month old son lost my emate stylus. I need a replacement. Does anyone
have one for sale? I prefer one of the cheap replacement stylus as he'll
probably lose another one in the future. I live in Australia.

Thanks in advance,

Donald

Jaggies follow up - plus a hypothetical...

Hi listers,

I mailed the list about my Jaggies problem.  I got many solutions from a lot
of listers.  Some were more technical than others.  Taking apart my Newt
isn't really an option, so I backed up everything and tried a brainwipe. 
After all my data was gone, the problem cleared right up.

I restored just about everything except my NIE related stuff as I am
probably  not getting on the net with this device.  I think all is still
well, though I have not used my Newt extensively this evening.

Does this mean it is software related?  If so, what's the offender?

On another note: I am contemplating a used Psion Series 5.  Anyone got any
experience with these machines?  I would like to use it for notes, dates,
numbers, and books.

Thanks!
Scott Strungis

Re: Jaggies follow up - plus a hypothetical...

Scott,

Psion's have historically been known as rock-solid and productive
little machines.  I certainly wouldn't be ashamed to use one.  I'm
pretty sure the platform is now discontinued like wtih the Newton, but
just like us, there's bound to be support sites, archives, and
listservs.  One of my friends had a 3 series which proved to work
well, but it was a bit boring for my tastes.  The 5, I believe, is a
much better and more interesting/capable machine.

If you go here:

http://www.newtontalk.net/map/activemap.html

you'll find some other Newtonians living in NZ. If you can find one of 
them you may be able to arrange to borrow an dongle or cable, or get a 
card with drivers pre-loaded. Otherwise JKSales has the PC cord with 
integrated dongle for a decent price ($13US), though can't say what the 
shipping will hit you for.

There are numerous ways to get around this problem. All depends on what 
hardware you've got kicking around. Anything with an IR port? Do you 
have a modem card? Are you handy with a soldering gun?

Welcome to Newtons Anonymous, you've passed the first step, admitting 
you have an obsession.

Can't help you with the specific question (my emates are still in 
pieces awaiting hinge repair, and haven't made the wireless jump yet) 
but you could start here:

http://tools.unna.org/wikiwikinewt/index.php/WiFi

And the list archive is also a great resource:

http://www.newtontalk.net/archive/

Search the archive for wireless and you'll be reading for days.

More people will chime in I'm sure, but it's a weekend, and usually a 
little less traffic on the list. One key question with wireless is does 
your network pass Appletalk packets. What sort of base station are you 
using?

Good luck!

I have Psion 5mx and love it. If your getting one go for the 5mx and 
not the 5.

Re: Newt on HGH

	The LIBRIe runs a modified version of Linux.  There are a fair amount 
of Linux fans who have been working with/modifying the software used 
with it: mainly to defeat the incredibly horrible DRM system it uses 
and allow it to read files in other formats than the one Sony created.  
Take a look at <http://www.sven.de/librie/Librie/SoftWare> and 
<http://www.mynetcologne.de/~nc-bergme2/librie.htm> for starters.
