Luckily I live on the east side of the Atlantic Pond, so Frank was able not
only source but also to install a couple of these for me (and his
workmanship is far better than mine would have been).  The white really is
the business, especially for my aging eyes.

One other thing -- I think I mentioned it long ago, but it's worth saying
again:  I've discovered that viewing the Newton screen through my polarized
sunglasses intensifies the contrast and makes viewing a lot better in
certain lights.  In fact, in certain lights the screen seems to light up
when I'm wearing my shades, and the contrast is so good I can read it
without m reading specs.  Not bad.
