Thanks Grant. Yes I downloaded all three of those a couple of years ago, then other projects got in the way and I soon gave up on the idea.

I did send a message at that time to Adam (from his website I believe), but did not get a response back, probably because it went to a mailbox that is no longer monitored. Again, none of that matters. I am sadly unlikely to pursue the idea of attempting modifications to nBlog.

At the time, the idea of writing a weblog entry on the Newton and then posting it online was quite appealing. Any spare time that would normally be used for that is now devoted to other things.

I do utilize his AlarmClock app for the Newton daily—I am quite pleased with it.
