Hi Dave

Regarding .nwt files, AFAIR there's no way of opening an .nwt file.  Instead
I got screenshots and artwork out by using SimpleMail instead of Mail V:

and the drawing became just an empty message. However - all three sent an
NWT attachment, which gave me hope (or "disappointment deferred", as I
believe Ambrose Bierce described it). My next question is obvious - how the
heck do I do anything with a .NWT on a contemporary Yosemite Mac, or indeed
anything else? Is there anything that can consume, convert, or extract
meaningful data from them? I rather like the aesthetic of Newton artwork.
And while I *can* extract plain text, which I'm very happy about, I'm
wondering if there's any way to get *more* types of data out of my Newton.
Particularly some of the more extravagant drawings I recklessly made - or
should I just screenshot with NCX?

Ahh, obsolescence. A humming backlight. A clacky keyboard. Thanks if anyone
has suggestions!
