I used the R1000 years ago too.  I knew that it would go south because
the
keyboard was a pain to use.  Being used to a normal PC keyboard this
thing
was a monster.  Since it had more keys and sequences to remember I gave
up
trying to master it.  It also didn't have graphics capability.  A real
bummer
back then.
