Hi David,

being one of the (still happy) owners of the original SER-001 I can only say
I am sorry to hear from you that you intend to leave the arena.

I was always interested in your Newt related projects and activities and was
looking forward for the announced improved solution to switch between two
clock speeds.

Being an electrical engineer working with space technology I have to admit
that there are more tempting topics.
But for me the Newt is still my "second brain", keeping all the addresses,
meeting appointments, passwords and other important information at hand.
So far the Newt never let me down but in the worst case - I do have a backup
unit and all the data is backed up on a separate Flash card.

I also share your interests in video editing, photography, electronic music
(and no, I did not know that you made an album) and I do understand very
well that there is always too little time for these hobbies. I think more or
less all of us are in a similar situation.

I wish you good luck and a lot of time for your hobbies.
Maybe you keep one or two of your Newts and use them.
It would be nice if you would stay (at least as listener) with that great

Good luck - and not good night as it was written in the previous post.
