Although I've had my hp100lx for over a year,
I've been unsuccesful in connecting it to an
external modem until now.  Admittidely, I've
not tried but several times..
Well today I paid attention to my front panel
lights, and noticed that my modem did not show
DTR being asserted.  Bang, a flip of a switch,
and now I'm online.

My mind can spell, but I don't touch type, so my fingers can't spell.

*Congrats* on connecting.  IMO, the ability to communicate via the Palmtop
is it's the neatest feature.  It's what separates it from organizers.  I
had gotten my HP 100LX second hand, as a replacement for my Casio BOSS
organizer.  It was woefully underpowered (the Casio, not the HP).  The
BOSS had a good phonebook; rather fast at retrieving data; and the
calendar was adequate, nothing to rave over.  However, with the space
limitations for notes, lack of sorting, lack of memory expandibility, I
soon realized I needed to find a better _organizer_!  A friend sold me
this HP.  And in an effort to find more info about the Palmtop, I happened
upon this newsgroup.  Imagine my surprise when I discovered what people
were doing with the Palmtop.  My HP was no longer just an organizer, now
it was a comm/info platform.  I can get on the internet to retrieve
programs, gather information, and communicate with others anywhere I can
get to a phone.  Not one to wait, I ordered a cable and connect software
for next day delivery, and waited e*dly for the cable to arrive.  I
was posting to comp.sys.palmtops within an hour of receiving my cable.
Next step is setting up for off-line use and I unleash the biggest
advantage of the Palmtop, it's portability.  And now the superb database
and PIM apps helps me get my work done in a timely manner, so that I have
time to connect and play.  Hope you have as much fun connecting as I have.
