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

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.
