Re: [NTLK] Y2010 bug diagnostic package

Well, After removing the batteries from my 2100, all memory cards, holding the reset *AND* power buttons for about a minute (this drains the super-cap) and then letting it sit for 2 hours without power, I got my Newt back up and running...digitizer is working again.
I started the Newt with no packages and then tried to perform a backup...
Hmmm, seems that I have a corruption in my names and notes...they won't backup...
Looking at them in TrashPak, I notice that they both are over 600k in size...
Am I hallucinating, or is there a theoretical maximum size that these files can be?
If I use TrashPak to "move" these soups to the card can it be moved back? I'm thinking I may want to do a brain wipe, but without a backup of my names and notes, this is not possible.

Dead digitizers and non-recharging batteries?  Sounds like I should hold off
on removing the old 2010 fix?
