What specific model of PowerBook are you using? It needs to implement IrDA,
which I think was implemented starting with the first model of the PowerBook
G3 Series, AKA "Wallstreet".

fascist adj.: [common] Said of a computer system with excessive or annoying security barriers, usage limits, or access policies. The implication is that said policies are preventing hackers from getting interesting work done. The variant `fascistic' seems to have been preferred at MIT, poss. by analogy with `touristic' (see tourist or under the influence of German/Yiddish `faschistisch').
