Hello everyone,
I am a long time Newton user and have been on and off the newtontalk mailing list for years. I recently got back into using my Newton 2100 and find it's size, weight and the texture of the screen wonderful to sketch on. I have demoed NewtPaint, which is a simple and simply wonderful sketching program for the Newt. However my demo has expired and I have made numerous attempts to get in touch with the developer, Landware, to purchase a copy of both this software as well as X-port (for both Mac and Windows as well as the Newton package), to no avail. I am receiving no response. Can anyone help me understand how to go about receiving a working copy with no expiration date of this software? I will gladly purchase the software if I know how.
Searching all over the net for a solution I stumbled across a discussion about NewtPaint on Google Groups that dates back to July of 1999. Here is the link: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/comp.sys.newton.misc/UjRG7B6LW94/VOHDAoJLUH0J
A user in this group, Lilian, wrote about having a beta copy of NewtPaint 2 which had greyscale support as opposed to only black and white, which is what is available on NewtPaint version 1. I wrote to her but have yet to receive a reply. Would anyone here have a copy of this beta software? It would be a dream to sketch with using the full potential of the 2100.
I am about to start a storyboarding project and was looking forward to doing the preliminary sketches on my trusty Newton while on the go. I look forward to whatever help this kind community can extend me.
Thank you all in advance for your help.
Kind regards,Igor Bertolucci
