NCX is revolutionary!!!

Tested your nice app on OSX 10.4.8. It works perfectly.
Installed fine, fastly and without the need to reboot.

I really love the icon you designed, simple and polite,
and much thanks for using a layout so similar to the original NCU.

I have found that the capability to make a selective backup
is really the most amazing feature. You can't imagine how much
I would have loved to make NCU capable of doing that!

Releasing for free to the community an application of such importance
is really unpayable. In a word I can admit you are a gentleman.

On next weeks I will build and donate to you a complete connectivity
Hope to be able to complete and include a special keyboard adapter I
am working on.

Then dear Marcus, responding to your question, NCX fully recognizes
all the usb adapters I have built, known as:

  - NewtUSB (out of sale)
  - NewtUSB Pro (limited edition - out of sale)
  - Newton USB Dongle (available for sale since this december)
  - NewtUSB Pro v2 (available on Jan 2007)

All the users who bought the above mentioned adapters,
(apart the Newton USB Dongles which will ship on next january only),
they reported an overall pleasant experience, other than easier than
with Keyspan's.

Again much thanks and compliments to Simon,
and may the New Year's Eve could be sweet like chocolate
for we all.
