The POQET to serial port cable is what is commonly used for file
transfers; the POQET manual covers how to do it; (as do Bryan's archives
of this list) the method of transfer by PC/PCMCIA card (the POQET was the
first use of these (Type 1) cards for PCs) is faster. I think it would not
be any problem if you save files in either ASCII (as from VDE) or the same
word processor format you are importing to (as Word Perfect of the same

Cal Digital's cables are indeed overpriced. There have recently been 
posted here POQETs and accessories more reasonably priced; check the 

Livewise, the archives have instructions ( I think) for making a POQET cable 
from the cable to the print head of old/nearly ubiquitous Okidata dot matrix 
printers. I know I have more than of these old printers lying around if 
you cannot find one for cannibalizing or an easier route to your 
cable/data transfer technique.

My Toshiba 3400CT recognises my Poqet card
OK, my Gateway Handbook does sometimes.  
I format the card with the DOS format command.

VDE works in the Poqet, but I had some
problems (conflicts with power management?).
I use older versions of QEdit and LIST, works
fine.  You can search directories for word strings:
list *.*/F wordstring (ENTER, and:  ALT a

Small, older versions of DOS programs can be
found in filepile.com.  NYWord is there, works
fine except for dropping wordwrap in Poqet
once in a session sometimes, turn it back on.
Takes more space than QEdit, does more. For
example, you can shell to DOS to use a utility
to bring back info automatically into a NYWord
window.  Example:  locate wordstring (ENTER).  
(LOCATE is an old PC Mag utility.)

Of use also for editing work is the utility
COMPARE, compares two version of a file.

Sorry I missed you.

I'll send you a check for $60 and then you can hold the PoqetPC and
stuff until I can pick it up.
