Re: [NTLK] Jaggies make me sad

I commisserate with you; IMO jaggies are the nemesis of the Newton; and the
biggest weakness of the platform; worse than connectivity; it seems that
eventually (and inevitably?) all the said fixes don't work and a new
touchscreen is called for. Sometimes it feels like sitting on a timebomb.

I persevered with a 2100, which developed jaggies and progressively got
worse, for months, but I was fortunate that Doug Parker fixed one for me by
replacing the screen; he is my nominee for sainthood; its difficult to
describe the relief experienced when I was able to return to work without

Hopefully the cost of a replacement unit is not beyond your budget.

So, I have three 2x00 series Newtons all with varying degrees of
failing touchscreens. Sadness. :( Here's hoping that Einstein is
progressing nicely...

I'm not sure why I'm posting this, other than to add my jaggies
experience to the NTLK archives for future reference, and maybe as
sort of a group therapy process. Is this the part where we all hug?
