Unfortunately I have so many projects going on right now that I do not
have much time to put into my little hobbies like the Newton.
Therefore I will present this to the community as it is with the
promise that I will continue to build on it in the coming weeks.

I know that there are far too many unkept promises within any group
but I am trying to make an effort to give back to the Newton community
by publishing this site with easy to follow step by step instructions,
and accompanying by screenshots, detailing the various processes of
selecting, setting up, troubleshooting, and maintaining a Newton. This
first index page is only a token of the work ahead of me. Much of the
text, and many of the images are not finalized. I hope to have the
connectivity page completed this coming week with all the important
details associated with setting up Serial, IR, Ethernet, Bluetooth,
and WiFi communications.

If anyone has any comments suggestions, or criticisms please let them
be known off board.
