Three weeks ago, I upgraded to an iBook dual USB, and now find myself having to use faxSTF, the bundled software that came with it.

The fax software that came with it is so buggy, I feel embarassed for its developers, not to mention its beta testers. Having used Global Village’s faxing softare for several years on my 2400c, I realize now how spoiled I was. faxSFT shows remarkable imcompatibility, with frequent errors (-35 just yesterday) on MAINSTREAM (though granted out of date) programs, such as Quark 3.3, WordPerfect 3.5, Photoshop 4.0, Excel, and God knows what else.

I’d been holding out for Ricochet wireless Internet access in Chicago for at least a year, but when Metricom closed its doors recently, I finally gave in and decided to find a data-capable mobile phone. My business partner connects her PowerBook to the Internet through her SprintPCS service, and it’s surprisingly useful despite the slow, 9600-baud modem speed. But there are lots of holes in SprintPCS’s coverage map, so I wasn’t yet sold.

Steinway PowerBook: Installing an iBook Keyboard in a Lombard/Pismo

In my attempt to give my Pismo a custom look, I found a few ideas. Many moons ago on ogrady.com I had remembered seeing an ibook keyboard fitted on to a Pismo. I desperately wanted such a custom look. I had seen the ads for keyBORG but I really was turned off by the techno style text (although I hear they are shipping ones with normal text). In my search for an ibook keyboard, I was finding dead ends everywhere. As it turns out nobody actually can sell you this keyboard part. I did however find out the part number is PN: JF0070101000.
