Re: Re: NTLK Synchronicity...

You can sort of do that with LookOut, which synchs the MP130 address book
to the OutLook address book. In the 5 free tries I had in the demo, it
transferred all the Newton data into Outlook, but I must have had
something messed up in how the outlook data was arranged because the Newt
wound up with many of the address entries duplicated. It may have had
something to do with how I originally exported my Newton address list
into Outlook. I was synching on about 500 entries and LookOut crashed
before getting finished updating the Newton; probably ran out of Newton

           Things You Would Never Hear A Mother Say

"How on earth can you see the TV sitting so far back?"

"Yeah, I used to skip school a lot, too."

"Just leave all the lights on ... it makes the house look more cheery!"

"Let me smell that shirt - yeah, it's good for another week."

"Go ahead and keep that stray dog, honey. I'll be glad to feed and walk
him every day."

"Well, if Timmy's mom says it's OK, that's good enough for me."

"The curfew is just a general time to shoot for. It's not like I'm
running a prison around here."

"I don't have a tissue with me ... just use your sleeve."

"Don't bother wearing a jacket - the wind-chill is bound to improve."
