I'm not the guy with the card reader to sell, but I found this message in
my Mailing List archives (which will, some day, find their way to the Web
Site)...

A newcomer, I just sent a message to Johm Mercer that I have a drive.
(not for sale).  It works great for SRAM cards, but I haven't figured out
how to format Flash Cards.  Anybody able to help?
Thanks, Ken Peterson.  P.S. when I figure out how, I'll post my complete
introduction message, which bounced back to me last week when I "signed
up".



Introducing myself. by K. Peterson <kpeters@xxxxxxxx>

Today's traffic encouraged me to try again to follow the suggestion in the
"welcome message" and greet whoever really is out there.

I'm Ken Peterson, a retired Boeing employee.  I have a Poqet PQ0164 which
I use for word processing when away from home.  My wife also has one which
she uses principally for appointment keeping.  Both were purchased from
Cal Digital the winter of 1994.
        My big question is whether I can and how I can use the 2 meg flash
cards I bought from CD.   I purchased a PREMAX/CARDTALK PC PCMCIA drive &
a couple of cards from them, and haven't successfully formatted them, even
though there is an entry of "Poqet" in the format options of the software
for flash cards that came with the drive (Socket.)   CD has offerred to
refund, but it took me a long time to contact them, and I'd rather get the
cards working than take advantage of their goodwill.  The flash cxards are
Type I made by CARDWELL International. (model 10230-1).   Any suggestions?
        The only potentially useful contribution to the pile of info for
the mailing list, is that GWBASIC works just fine for me from a SRAM card,
END        The only potentially useful contribution to the pile of info
for
the mailing list, is that GWBASIC works just fine for me from a SRAM card,
and also a shareware game named TRIVIA, which is played a little like
MONOPOLY, but you get a score by answering trivia questions  based on your
dice-determined board position.  Only bad part: it continuously refreshes
the CGA screen, so it probably eats batteries a little.  It is a winner,
however with international students who want to learn a little about
Western civilization.

I just used Poqet Classics' built-in Poqet Tool to transfer some files
(8-n-1, XON/XOFF, X-modem-1K). I found that files transferred has always
two or three extra bytes than the original. What gives?

Hi there:

Yes the Eye Relief word processor works well. Been using it since 1991
on several Poqet PC's. I saw a trade journal comment about Ken doing
some internet software development. Haven't talked to him in years. I
sould trust what ever he builds, cause Eye Relief works as advertised.
