Hi Patrick 

Thanks for reaching out.  Yes, as it happens I have uploaded most of what I
have to this website:  4shared.com

Here are the specific links:

I have taken the liberty of sending this to Newtontalk as well, since there
may be readers there who might also be interested.

Hello! 

I recently acquired a piece of tech I've been longing for, for about 15
years. The MessagePad 2000!
I remember around 2008 I had a chance on purchasing one on eBay and the
auction went well over $300, being 18 years old at the time it was way over
my budget. I settled for the H1000 unit which served me well for notes and
homework. At the time, forums were alive with Newton software, people were
making the aging device alive! 

It's been a few years now but it looks like the once alive forums have
vanished. UNNA offers some, but mostly empty promises. 

I snagged the 2000 for about $50 and I've set an old IR enabled PowerBook
for file transfer. But I'm having a lot of trouble finding the really cool
software gems there used to be. 

My biggest question is: Do you have any software archived for yourself that
you might be able to share with me? 

Also do you know of any place that I can get an inexpensive stylus and
interconnect dongle? 

I'm 26 and my mission is to use this puppy to its full capacity in the
modern world. It's a head turner and it just makes you smile when the new
kids are jealous of the capabilities. 

Side note, the H1000 was sadly destroyed recently in a nearly fatal car
accident of mine. I'll attach a picture.

Hopefully I didn't bore you, but it's a crazy story if you add it all up. 

Thanks for your time,

Patrick.
