[NTLK] A few basic questions from a new disciple...

Thanks all!

I feel like I'm well on my way!

One other question: there are a number of pages that talk about bringing Wifi to a Newton, but does that only apply to the 2000 series?  That is, can a 130 fit a wireless card?  I only ask because the "Definitive Guide" on the wiki is blank (http://www.thisoldmac.ca/newtonknowledge/index.php?title=Getting_Newton_Connected_Over_Wifi:_The_Definitive_Guide)

Welcome to Newton talk.
The 130 is a very nice newton with a form factor preferred by many.   
There is a 2010 problem and at this the only solution for yo0u is to  
choose a year that has a similar pattern to 2010.  I seem to recall  
that there are a couple 1993 seems to come to mind.

The connection cable is the Mac serial printer cable.  Best USB/Serial  
adapter is probably the Keyspan usa28.  another good option is the  
Keyspan  usa 19 but you will need PC to Mac serial adapter.  Read  
recent archives.  IRDA is not truly viable though there drivers that  
will allow installing packages.

Look for Prefs.

Wikiwikinewt is currently down and I am having no luck with wayback  

I believe Ryan Vetter is hosting another wiki but at the moment I  
can't find it.
