Hi Mark,

yes, you will be able to make blank Flash Cards, and then you can make a 
backup on your physical device and restore it to the virtual Flash Card. 
I will also (later) add functionality to Einstein to connect to a 
MessagePad via Network and then download the Flash Card in the other slot.

> And it would be great to have all my Notes on my iPad Einsten.  Right now I’m archiving by year, but when you laid the “GOLD” down I started hoping for more memory / space on  Einstein.

You can make as many cards as you like. It's probably bad to make cards 
larger than 32MB, or NewtonOS slows down a lot. Einstein will manage 16 
or so cards without problems. Cards are stored as a single file on the 
host, so you can easily back them up with the rest of your system.

> My next question is, will you port this PCMCIA functionality to all Einsteins, ie) over to the iOS Einstein?

It will work on MacOS, Windows, and Linux for sure (give it a week or 
two). It will eventually work on Android (that will be probably 3 months 
away). I can't give you an ETA for iOS. I am not maintaining that 
version. Technically, it's of course possible.

> Thanks so much for all that you do in all things Einstein!! I wish we could give you a tip somehow, a coffee, beer, etc… I think I’m up to owing you a case of beer by now!

Sound great. Let's a have a beer at the next physical User Meeting ;-)
