Hi everyone,

I'm unlurking to piggy-back on Peter's message to say that I have a similar
lode of Newton stuff here in Toronto, which I'd gladly hand over to anyone
who can come and get it.  Payment optional although, like Frank, I'm always
open to a bottle of Laphroaig 10-year  :)

In addition to older models and an eMate or two, my collection includes
some 2100s although I'm not sure any of them are free from the "jaggies"
and/or scratched screens.  Lots of accessories including GPS, various
cases, some original boxed software, etc.

Long ago I was somewhat active in the Southern Ontario NUG (see photo in
the "Cult of Mac" book -- the little girl in the photo is now in 3rd year
university) but sadly these days I rarely have time to check NewtonTalk let
alone play with my Newton stuff.  And I need to reclaim some storage space
-- unlike Peter, I don't have a garage!

Kudos and greetings to everyone who's been keeping things going!
