Thanks for the tip.  Has anyone else had this problem?  If it's very
prevalent, maybe Bryan could note that in his FAQ and post instructions on
the fix.

So how does the screw and nut work?  I can see the cotter pin through the
open hole in the screen hinge, but the other end of that is closed over.  Do
you drill out that hole to put a nut on the other end?  Sorry if I'm a
little dense, fix-it stuff certainly isn't my forte.

Hello all-

I just recently joined the world of PoqetPC owners. I managed to get a
Classic w/ Wp5.1 and a 512k SRAM card for $40!

Anyway, I was looking for a definitive answer to a question regarding
serial connections on the PoqetPC. My PoqetPC came with a serial
adapter. I attempted to use pqlink to connect to my desktop box using a
serial cable and a gender changer. This did not work. Thus I assume that
I need to use a null modem cable or adapter to connect the male db25 on
my PoqetPC to the male db25 on my desktop box. Is this the case?
