[NTLK] SER-001 with Pix Solutions overclock

 Since people are talking about SER-001 and overclocking, I feel compelled
toshare my experience. The Pix Solution Implant accelerator has one wire
that must be soldered to a pin which connects to the socket that the SER-001
plugs into. I was concerned that two mods sharing the same pin could cause a
problem, but due to my huevos grandes or complete apathy (not sure which)--I
combined the two and have not run into any real problems. My understanding
is that if you do the $5 Radio Shack street ghetto overclock, it will speed
up the sound (which is gay). I don't know if that is true or if it bothers
anyone. The Implant doesn't affect it and seems to work just fine. I have
also been able to connect to my Mac through the SER-001 without disabling
theaccelerator. Many people say the accelerator messes up the connection
through the interconnect port (w/exterior dongle) so that you can't use a
keyboard or serial connection. I don't know if the pin sharing fixes that
problem, or if the problems with overclocking and serial ports are just
fiction. Finally, the biggest difference I've noticed is when running any
WABA-type program. Before the Implant, I would just sit around and wait for
the Newton "?" to disappear from the top of the screen. Now it just flashes
imperceptably and I hardly notice it. JM
