NTLK DE-660 reviewlette-Oh Happy Day!

        I just got my DE-660 net card in the mail yesterday. I had installed
the ATLAN4 enternet driver in anticipation, and set up a net connect slip
with the proper settings to hook up to my home network. I opened the box,
popped in the card, and bing! The ATLAN driver recognized the card
instantly, so I plugged my MP into the wall (this card has a pretty hefty
power drain. I'll not be doing a whole bunch of web browsing on
batteries...), plugged the card into my hub, and started downloading
slashdot. This is a good thing. I can now avoid the frustration of
converting web pages I want to take with me into newton books with Newton
Press, and just grab them in NewtsCape.
        The card itself was $40 from Egghead, new, with all the warranties
and stuff. Considering that I spent a few weeks trying to pick up a (used!)
net card from eBay for less than $35, this was a really good deal. If anyone
is looking for a good ethernet solution for an MP2x00 or eMate, this is a
nice way to go.
        Now it's time to go register NewtsCape... Thanks to Steve Weyer for
NewtsCape, and Hiroshi Noguchi for the ATLAN driver.
