Welcome back old timer.  :-)  Eckhart's patch works a treat on the MP2x00s.
As for the reset issue, it's a tiny annoyance compared to having to use the
1999 calendar, and it's practically insignificant if you get an app like
"TimeDate Set" (go to <http://newton.tek-ed.com/> and search the page for
the package -- it's a good browse).

While we're talking about software for the Newt, and since you mention using
your Newton for task management, I'm going to mention 4 products I
discovered through recommendations here:  MoreInfo, Unlimited ToDos,
Unlimited Folders, Affiliate Plus:

No, I'm not connected in any way to the company or these products, except as
a very satisfied customer of SilverWARE.  It's not often I'd describe
software as "awesome", but these 4 packages fit that description for me.
Until I tried these, I was doing well enough managing my work tasks,
appointment schedule and clients info just using the in-built apps on my
2100, but when I started using these, I discovered how much more I could've
been doing.  As an old-timer you probably already know the company and the
products, but just in case, you might like to have a look.

Now if I could just make my work "fit" the GTD pattern ...
