I don't know if someone is interested, but you have some up-front investment
here, in such a project. Before even starting to code anything, you need to
have a computer, a Newton, a Palm and the CodeWarrior for Palm development
environment. For the Palm's part alone, that means probably an investment of
$500-1000 USD. And you still haven't put any hour in it... I'm not even sure
that the Newton and the Palm supports the same infrared protocol, in fact I
doubt it, so it may be close to impossible to do. Sorry to rain on your
parade like that, but these are the facts of life...
