Re: Unlikely eBay UK price for Newton 2100

Although the person who came in third (with 260 pounds!) was also  
bidding on at least one other Newton and would have been a genuine  
bidder I'd say.

I thought the "tons of extras" in the description was a bit of a  
laugh compared to some other recent units with printer packs and any  
number of bits and pieces.

Probably a shill.  I would avoid the seller in future.

That does seem very odd, since the seller actually has 100% positive  
and many transactions as well...

I tried to sell a very nice MP2100 with many extras, here on the list  
for $125 (US) and it's still sitting in my basement.

Oh well, the more you pay the more it's worth I suppose.

Hullo.  I don't suppose anyone here knows any way of contacting

WaveLAN Setup Questions

Hullo.  I just got my mits on a Lucent WaveLAN Silver card, and I  
need advice configuring it for use with v1.08a of the driver  
software.  I'm trying to access the wifi network on campus.  I  
followed the instructions on the driver site, but the key bit of info  
I seem to be missing is the SSID.  I have no idea what this is, or  
for that matter what to list there.  I assume as far as a wifi  
hotspot goes, I just configure the card for "Infrastructure" mode,  
and Channel 1 (since the setup won't let me select a different channel).
I also could use some tips running Internet Setup.  What I've done so  
far is make a new, generic setup named for the campus.  Should the  
configuration be "DHCP Server", or "Manual"?

Thanks,
Chris Cooley

These are charging contacts for a dock of some sort, I guess. They are 
directly connected to the DC jack on the PCB.

Hi Colin,

These are what seem to be charging contacts very similar to the
contacts on the MP110/120/130 series. For those they have the Charging
Station...

I'm not sure if a charging station ever came onto the market though
they did make a Cart which schools used to store and charge eMate
300's but they only used the 9W Adapters nothing that made use of
those contacts...

If I were given enough time to figure the polarity OR if someone
already knew that I would consider making a charging station for the
eMate 300.

Looking at the base with handle pointing away: The top one is negative 
(outer of DC jack) and the bottom one is positive (inner of DC jack). I 
just happened to be working on my faulty one today. :-P

Compatible Jabber Servers ?

Has anyone been playing with Newton IM lately ?

Anyone know of a Jabber server that supports both plaintext logins ?  
And has few transports for other protocols ?

Ive found a few that seem to support plaintext logins, but when I  
login my buddy list does not populate in Newton IM.

The SSID is what is commonly referred to as the Network name.  In  
other words,  if you are looking in the menubar of an OSX mac under  
the airport menu, you will see the SSID there.  You need to be  
careful to enter this info exactly.

The Newton unfortunately doesn't have a way to find the SSID.

You can try the DHCP setting, and depending on the DHCP server in use  
there it may or may not work.  If you can figure out and manually  
configure the TCP/IP info then you are good.

Good Luck, and have fun.
