Awesome, Jim! You'll have to write an article for Newton Bowels Project once
you get it all worked out.

BTW, to fix your wonky screenshots in NTK, you should make sure you have the
latest Toolkit package on your Newton - v1.3b3. If you don't have it you can
grab it from a later NTK package (1.6.1 for Windows, or 1.6.4 for MacOS).
