Subject: [NTLK] MP 2000 resurrection

Hi All,Somewhere on the internet I stumbled upon an article from Wired in
2013 showcasing people who still use their Newtons
(http://www.wired.com/2013/08/the-newton-lives/), and was inspired to join
your mailing list and bring my old MP 2000 out of retirement. I bought it
used when I was in highschool, with a keyboard. Never bought any software or
other accessories for it. Used it for writing school assignments. Now I
intend to load up, max out, and make it do everything I couldn't when I was
too young/broke to bring it to its full potential. Could you kind folks
please send me your recommendations for what must-have packages I should
install, and what the most fun modern-world uses are for these gadgets?.
Also, (1) what's the best way to interface with a modern Mac? I have both
the original Mac and PC serial cables and a couple dongles. (2) I seem to be
unable to make it accept the current date/time. Is this a known bug that can
be fixed with a software update somehow?
