Re: [NTLK] Paul's ATA drivers and registration

First of all, I too have to express my appreciation for Paul's efforts. Apple
said it was technically impossible. So Paul climbed his Everest and "knocked
the b---- off!"

That alone is certainly worth an accolade.

OTOH he did set up an expectation that he would be releasing subsequent versions
with fixes and greater reliability. On that basis, I was motivated to support
his work and became a registrant. The fact that he didn't is disappointing.

Based on the conversations so far, there is a possibility that he perceives a
conflict of interest of some sort between the nature of his work and continuing
his efforts on the Newton. The mind boggles as to what that might be.
