Indeed. Jeremy, can you export notes from the Newton with NewtDump
alright? NewtDump uses basicially the same serial transfer code as
Notes2Notes, so if you can dump all your notes to text with NewtDump then
the problem with Notes2Notes probably doesn't have anything to do with
Sloup or serial. (Did that sentence make sense?)
