Eckhart's ROM patches are already installed on my 2100 and eMate. My  
guess, with similar reboot-date-reset bugs on all my v2.0 Newtons,  
Eckhart's patch is not the culprit. The reboot-date-reset bug might be  
an uglier (more difficult) boot ROM bug and as such, may take more  
effort and time to fix.

Yes, brainwipes are next. I'm just not looking forward to it. I've  
been meaning to reconfigure/re-purpose ALL of various Newtons with  
clean installs. These issues may force the opportunity.

I'll look for it. Thank you!

Right now I'm using the TimeDate Set app and it also works well with  
the 2100 and eMate.

The app's window was made too big for the 120 and 130, so it can't  
close... ugh!

Maybe it's time to come up with a weekday-compatible-newton-compatible  

Anybody want to party like it's 1999!?

yuck, bad joke! Y2K is a leap-year anyway, 2011 is not. However, the  
Newton was Y2K ready... Almost. Maybe. Maybe not.
