Only a few of people have contacted me so far about the "WebPal" unit. They are:

Each owns (or did own) a WebPal unit, and none has indicated great happiness. Perhaps they have figured something out, or perhaps you can work with them if you need help.

And he cotinued on June 21, 1999...

I have recently found out that for
Teknema to release the repair for the Newcom boxes. They
need a retailer to buy 1000 minimum of these fix it kit.
He mentioned that a larger SIMM chip from them, would
allow us to download the software repairs after.

That's all I have to offer.

Good luck,
Cris Mooney
