The self-aggrandizing flotsam department.

Please note that the delightful pair of vociferous Mac-heads, Dan Benjamin and John Gruber make an ever so brief mention of Newton (and yours truly) in the recently unveiled Hivelogic Podcast. The first two episodes of the podcast are a casual discussion of their ideas regarding what new products might appear during the imminent Macworld […]

Yes, there is life around here.

It may have all the appearances of a languishing community site, but the Newted Community is still alive. I realize that it has been over a year since the last news update, but to be honest, not much has happened around the old server since the WWNC wrapped up last January. A couple of server […]

Possible server and email disruptions.

The ISP which supplies my DSL connection is changing the IP addresses assigned to its customers. The upside of this is that my ISP (and therefore customers like myself) will be less dependent on a certain unnamed <cough>Telus<cough> monolithic telecommunications corporation. The downside is that I have to change IP addresses on several live servers, […]

I’m not sure when it happened or what went wrong, but the Newted Community server was pooched for most of yesterday. I was aware that a problem existed first thing in the morning when I started getting email connection errors at the office. I was unable to ping or access the server from work and […]

Announcing the Newton Flickr group.

To help perpetuate my recent Flickr addiction, I have created a Flickr group specifically aimed at all green-bleeding photographers. If you own a Newton (or two) and happen to use Flickr as well, then this group is definitely for you. The Newton Flickr group is aimed at collecting images of everything relating to the MessagePad, […]

Happy newt year.

A couple days after the fact, but still… Here’s looking forward to a year absolutely chock full of exciting and innovative green-glowing loveliness. Hopefully, there’ll be a little bit of the standard Newton community frivolity thrown in for good measure as well. Onward!

Coverage around the world.

Oh, the publicity. Thanks to the little nod over at Wired News, we’ve experienced a ten-fold lift in traffic over the past couple of days. Fortunately, the quirky old Cobalt Qube that serves up this site isn’t even breathing hard after all of the fuss. Besides Wired News, who I blame for all of this, […]

Newted gets wired.

Leander Kahney is a purveyor of tales and ephemera culled from Mac and Newton communities alike. True to his style, he has just published a Wired News article featuring none other than the Newtons Around The World gallery. Fittingly entitled The Picture of Devotion, it is certainly a fine hat tip to this site and […]
