How to purchase AstroNewt

From: PDAntic
Subject: Found AstroNewt!
Date: Sat, 10 Jul 1999


Well, after having not heard from ANYONE who wanted to purchase AstroNewt over the last year and a half, I had three requests in the last week, all from people named Michael. Almost sounds like the plot to an episode of the X-Files... I did a search of all of my growing pile of Zip disks and found a copy of Astro.pkg, the Newton package file that contains the app. Anyway, here's what I'd like to do.

First and foremost, this is a product, even if I can no longer support it (I no longer have a MessagePad, Mac or Newton Toolkit). This was the prototype for AstroPilot and AstroHTML, our successful packages for Palm and Windows CE devices. As such, I don't really want to put this out into the public domain as shareware or freeware. I would be willing to e-mail you a copy for $10, half of what I charge for the Palm/CE version. If you'd like to try this, just drop a check or $10 bill into an envelope along with your e-mail address to:

892 E. Quail Place
Highlands Ranch, CO 80126-2137

I'll e-mail the package ASAP after I get your money. It is 666KB in size, unzipped.
There are a couple of caveats; first, I must repeat that I can't support the package. Second, some people who had purchased this package last year had problems installing it. They needed to run some sort of file type utility on it before they could get the Newton Package Installer to recognize it as a Newton package. Since it has been quite a while since I last had any interest in AstroNewt, I do not remember the name of the utility. If you get the package file and can't get it to install, let me know and I'll refund your money (just be honest about this!).

If you know of any other people who have expressed an interest in AstroNewt, please forward this information to them and I'll extend the same offer to them.
