    NewtFTP?

    In case anyone else is interested, I found the Official Person™ to "buy" a license from. I say buy in quotes because he asks instead to donate to a Newton cause of your choice and send him proof. I chose UNNA, of course. His name is Anthony Velasco, his email is ecotone_tv AT hotmail.com (sanitized for anti-spammers). He's VERY busy right now moving so he said it may take quite a long time to send the serial number. I can wait though. Hooray.

    NewtFTP?

    I hate to ask this question. I have tried several times to contact Tactile Systems online. I'm not sure if it's even the correct Tactile Systems that wrote the old NewtFTP, but it seems possible. Anyway, they never return my emails. I'm trying to find (even buy from the source) a serial number for NewtFTP 2.0. I'm stuck. no such luck. Does anyone know anyone to contact regarding buying a license? or does anyone HAVE a serial number? Ugh. Abandonware makes me so depressed. Maybe I should stop living in the past, but most days it sure beats living in the now.

    Newton Connection Utility disconnects with -1

    Thanks. i'll check the Claris thing, Right now i'm leaning towards the adapter though. I just ordered the good old Keyspan adapter anyway.
  5. Hopefully someone sees this and knows what's the scoop. After about 10 years of sitting in a storage box, I decided to pull out my MP2100. I also recently purchased a "new" PowerMac G4 that runs 9.2 (I used to have soooo many classic macs, but fate decided to force me to let them go back in 2008). Anyway, enough backstory. I loaded Newton Connection Utilities on the G4 and bought a Entrega USB to Serial doohickey. Tried to back up the Newt for safety first thing, but it halts the backup with a cryptic -1 error. Anyone have this issue before? Is 9.2 too high to run NCU? Maybe it's the Entrega dongldooky. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them. And thanks so much for this sight. Seems like every day it gets harder and harder to find old Newton/68k/PPC information on the internet. Sad.
