Wow, another 1.3 user! Thought I was alone in my insanity. Never got around
to the 2.0 and 2.1 software, and ever since finding out about the 2010 bug,
I haven't pushed it at all. The form factor of those older Newts was a
little large for me. And yeah, I know about the 130, but the blacklight is a
little suspect and an upgraded 120 has too little memory to justify it.

Thanks so much for those software updates. It's hard to find which programs
run for sure on 1.3, so it's always a challenge when visiting UNNA. I'll
look into the Napkin Calc (I've seen it, never sure if it would work on a
1.3). I don't really want to do any development for the Newt, even
scripting. I'm over the whole programming thing personally. I really liked
that the PineHill Software would load the calculation INTO the formulas tab.
I'm not sure why they would put that on the Newt, and not provide a way to
expand the meager list provided.
What other 1.3 apps can you suggest? I have a 23 meg card that is always
ready for new software! Presently only has Gold Tee game on it. Thanks
