Re: [NTLK] Refreshing one's memory (mine, not the Newton)

I very much agree with Tony about PIM Data being stored internally.
In addition to that I recommend essential extensions for internet and
ethernet connectivity.
I use two cards, a pertinent card that has among other things
Dashboard and More Info. The other slot is for communication cards or
an expendable memory card for very large temporary Works documents (a
system reset while one of these is being saved can corrupt a card).

If you use Dashboard to open a frozen application then it will
refreeze when you close it.

Keep as much frozen as you can.
