Hey everyone! I just got finished reading about two weeks worth of digests
and would like to add a few points:

1. The MiniDisc data format has found new life in multitrack audio recorders
for home studios, replacing analog cassettes and competing with HDD-based
systems. Those interested in the MiniDisc technologies should check out
http://www.minidisc.org : a site by and for die-hards of an awesome but
beleaguered technology (sound familiar?).

2. There used to be a web page that was the best reference I had found on
applications for Newt, with a pleasant interface (including a
Newton-friendly version), searchable, and with links to respective vendors.
It was called _Newton Reference_, and though it hasn't been updated in two
years (*sigh*), it's still an excellent resource for those "I don't remember
what it was called, but I know what it did" or "Who made this and where can
I get it" or "I have this package, what does it do?" sort of questions. URL

3. MP3s are cool, but MODs are cooler and smaller! Roger Milne gets my award
for the best multimedia-in-the-hand category (since Lee Moon moved on,
anyway). Check out http://roger.trideja.com/newton/modplayer.html ,
especially if you used to own an Amiga!

Hey Steve Weyer and/or Rich Lindsay! WHAT TON contest to win NewtsCape?

This month's NewtonTalk brought to you by:

EVOTE.COM, the ultimate Political Junkie site on the 'Net.

The Clinton Administration, the George Bush
2000 Campaign, and almost every other major
U.S. politician has said something nasty
about us at some time. Find out why at:
