Hi and thanks to all who got back to me!

Thanks for the advice and recommendations, I will definitely look into those.  In addition I got a couple of PM replies as well, and I will get back to all you kind folks too.

For those who asked, I'm in the US (near Chicago) although I'll be in the UK over Christmas.  Heading to airport this afternoon - if the snow lets me.......... :-o

Take Care and everyone have a great Christmas, Holiday and New Year.

I would like to get my NiMH rechargeable battery replaced or re-celled (as I have seen some talk on this list).  Also, my backlight, while still perfectly usable, is getting noticeably dim.  I came across a site newtonsales.com which looks like it offers these services, amongst others (including selling actual Newtons etc).
