Re: [NTLK] Hard reset - Who Does 'em?

I'm just aghast that someone can go "a week of so"
without their Newt! Who is this heretic? I suffer from
seperation anxiety if I go to the bathroom and leave
my newt on my desk. To me, my Newt is like the
security blanket is for Linus from Charlie Brown
Heck, whenever I do a backup of my mp2k, I do restores
to my other MP2100 and my two other MP120! That way I
have "hot-swappable" Newts ready for any emergency,
"scuse me maam, Newton emergency, let me through! Get
this man a Newton! 120, 130! Anything, can't you see
he's suffering?"
