Which version of the Lucent WaveLAN card (Bronze, Silver, or Gold) are
you using? I think I missed that detail in the previous thread ("Re:
Bluetooth", I believe).

Most people attempting to use Bronze cards report numerous issues. The
Silver/Silver Turbo card only does 48-bit/64-bit WEP unless it has had
its firmware upgraded to that of a Gold. The Gold card can do 128-bit

I believe there's a version of NewtSync's

2.x... probably

One can probably write an AppleScript to go from plain text notes (via
NewtSync of NCX) to Yojimbo or Mark/Space Notebook without having to
actually develop a new plug-in for NewtSync.
