....T-Shirt Design

A T-shirt design fitting of the current climate, featuring no other than the notorious E-Kö man emerging at high velocity from a steaming hot bowl of the finest poutine (the Kryptonite for Newton super heroes) having saved the 2.0 community from certain doom by developing The 71J059 Patch! This historic moment coupled with the recent banter on about reestablishing production of Newton paraphrenalia. See May entries entitled: [NTLK] [OT?] Newtontalk items.

Thanks to Ed Kummel for the wacky idea, to Eckhart Köppen for The THEME!!! and the rest of the Newton Community for on-going entertainment.

All created using Hex Paint + lightbulb icon from Newt Works drawing. Emailed to self using mailv.

Up up and away to 2093......or thereabouts.

Our instinct - more deadly than 'terror', more contagious than the plague?

Sobering thoughts captured on an MP2000. Clip art from AvailWorks Clipart Collection - logos from NewtonWorks. Cobbled together and shading done in HexPaint. Copied to Note, emailed to self.

It's true folks, the Newton Platform has been saved from extinction yet again through the endeavours of the one and only, the amazing, the generous.....the super-splendiferous and exceedingly brainy..

Eckhart Köppen.

Read it yourself tonight on Newtontalk...see 23 May 2009 or go direct to:

This is seriously good news for the Newton community.

Thank you Eckhart!!

[Of much lesser importance: Clip Art of man taken from AvailWorks, Clip Art of Newton taken from Newtworks. Cobbled together and shading in done using HexPaint. I did the stylus myself! Wey-hey!. Copied to Note, added text - emailed to self using the most awesome Mailv]. PS: if anyone wants a copy of the Availworks clip art packages let me know,  Matt K kindly sent a copy to me - there are hundreds of them).

Here we have an excellent contribution to the collection from fellow Newton enthusiast Ron Parker in the form of a superb technical drawing which Ron himself describes below: (Click on the image to see the full size).

Over to you Ron..


'This is the original graphic created for a tutorial I wrote called,


The entire tutorial was typed and edited using Newton Works on my eMate and MessagePad 2100. Final post production, was of course, done on my Mac.

Included in the GIF is the ultimate reason for experimenting with, as well as documenting, my experiences. I get bragging rights for being truly wireless, with my Newton. And, for having done so (probably) for the longest amount of time than any other Newton user.

From the "Who says, 'Size Doesn't Matter'" file:
  Ever notice, when someone comments on your Newton PDA,
  the first thing they say is, "Wow, that's a big one."'


Nice one Ron, Newton Art has just grown up!

The future's


Contemplating the long term effect of our technological 'developments'....even this blog is bad for you!

Captured in HexPaint. Clipart from Newtonworks then copied and pasted in.  Negative effect achieved by 'invert' function in HexPaint. Copied to note then transferred to desktop using Xport and RTF bitmap option. Opened in Wordpad, copied image and pasted to its own file. (Too large to email using Mailv). Image not changed from Newton version.


Can you ever....


Inspired by the current UK story that loads of MPs (the custodians of our democracy!) have been cooking the books when it comes to expenses and taking us all to the cleaners. Turns out they've all got their snouts in the trough!

The Good and The Bad are not a breed apart.

Captured on MP2000. Dark lines done in NewtPaint, copied to Newtonworks to add the backgrounds. Copied to note then emailed to self using Mailv.



Does the separateness of the shapes make you feel lonely or does the intersection pull you into a vortex of stillness? 

Meaning or nonsense..what do you see? 

Created in Newtpaint, newly aquired from Landware - copied to note, emailed to self using Mailv.

Are not what they seem

A simple, single celled organism under the spotlight of an MP2000 reveals a complex network of organisms and worlds. Isn't it humbling and reassuring to know that the smaller you go the bigger things get!

There's even a Newton joke somewhere in the cytoplasm!

Another work of absurdity captured mostly using Newtpaint. A few clip arts copied from Newton Works. Had to copy this from NewtPaint to Note in two halves then emailed to self using Mailv. Joined back up on PC. 

Microcosms are BIG Man!

The two sides...

Of Being Forty...

<--Starting to look with scorn at the youth on the corner of your street and wondering why oh why oh why do they wear their jeans so low. 

Versus --->

The pleasure of not noticing yourself wearing beige! and generally loving Life!

All captured for posterity on an MP2000. OK I can only do symbolic art.

Please email to be added to the list of contributors or email me your GIFs, JPEGS, screenshots etc and I'll upload them for you. Alternatively contact me and send me a print out or fax. Or if all else fails I may be able to send you a Newton compatible flash card to copy your creations onto and send back to me. Last but not least I'll fly over and collect them..
