Hi Ian!

If you want try do something really cool with your Newton, try install NPDS (http://npds.free.fr). It is a simple web server working on Newton ;)

If you want see, how it works, you can check it on my (or other people) NPDS Tracker: http://tracker.applenewton.co.uk:3680

It is really cool stuff ;)

If you find proper DRAM chips, please give me info about it. I have access to SMT stuff, so I can easily solder new chips. But I see that instruction is without any pictures, and info about DRAM chips is very poor.

Thanks for this link! I will finally repair two of my 2100s with broken (or very dark) backlights.
