I do agree the software Eckhart has created for the Newton is  
outstanding. If it wasn't for his will I don't believe there wouldn't  
be a patch for the 2010 bug. At least not as great as it is now.  
However, I must say that if it wasn't for the guides on your website  
then we would be much more lost when it came to replacing a backlight  
or repairing broken MP130s.

I can't tell you how helpful pda-soft.de was when I first came into  
the Newton community. I was the new owner of a MP2100, which had a bad  
battery and no dongle. Within a month the battery pack was re-celled  
and I had a SER-001 board installed. All of that was possible with the  
guides on the website.

I will conclude with the following: The fate of pda-soft.de and  
40hz.org are forever linked. We can't enjoy the software for the  
Newton without knowledge of the hardware and how to keep it running.  
Likewise we can't enjoy the hardware without the software written by
