[NTLK] setting up my spare NEWTON

Hi James

I don't know if this is helpful or not but I wonder if it is worth you 
using the Emergency back up utility of SBM utilities. When a memory card 
with this on is inserted in the Newton it automatically counts down 
about 10 seconds and then does a complete backup. So it's a protection 
is you get screen problems and allows you do back up. I could send you 
this on an 8MB card if this would help - but perhaps someone more local 
to you has it too.

There was a thread a while ago with free registration codes (legitimate 
ones) for this utility which were made available to the Newton 
community. Follow this thread.


Good luck
