Nut'n is just a cheap PAD (as opposed to a high cost PDA)
and is designed to MIL Spec (Mighty
Nut'n has advanced operation features such as support for
animation, built-in encryption and compression, embedded
text and many other features key to the executive demands of
any PAD. Nut'n is made from two part, high impact,
poly-plastic and is extremely durable. We know this because
we dropped Nut'n from the top of a four story building and
Nut'n happened when it hit the passing car below, Nut'n did
get a little scratched when it bounced onto the street.
Purchase requests may be submitted to OrderingNutN@OutsideTheLines.com.
The cost can range from an all time low standard price of
$20.00 USD or up to many times this amount depending on the
mood we are in and if we are interested in making Nut'n. The
only way to get a freshly made Nut'n is with someth'n - you
can't get Nut'n for nut'n. We do not currently carry a stock
of Nut'n. You should put stock in Nut'n as well.
Nut'n sales to date:
Official Nut'n Owner's Manual
Opening of this package implies acceptance of the
agreement herein. You paid for it, it's yours. If the dealer
wanted it they wouldn't have sold it to you, so don't try to
give it back to the dealer for any reason, unless the dealer
is not totally satisfied within 30 days. You went to school
and learned a bunch of stuff, and after reading this manual,
you will end up knowing Nut'n.
Failure to honor this agreement could result in Nut'n
happening to you. You could also lose dessert privileges for
up to one week, whichever comes first - don't you know
Congratulations on purchasing Nut'n!
Please take the time to read all instructions carefully
and your handheld Personal Analog
Device, or PAD, will provide years of valuable
Do not use your PAD near liquids. Damage to the
display could occur.
Unpower the unit before changing the display.
Do not use the product in the vicinity of thunderstorms,
as damage to the liveware could result.
There isn't Nut'n that this thing can't do. This device
supports many of the highest tech leading edge terms in use
Animation capability - using the PAD's built-in
FlipTime digitizer you can make movies that don't
require film processing or batteries. To make animations,
remember to start at the back of the PAD unless you want
your animation to run backward. Sounds is automatically
added when you play your movie, but it is always the same
sound, similar to pages flipping, because that was the only
sound we could think of to provide. Detailed descriptions of
how to make FlipTime movies will be available in book
form at a later date.
Embedded text - Heck, just tear off part of the
PAD with writing on it and stick it - between other PAD
Data compression and encryption - to protect your
work from prying eyes, we have developed a compression and
encryption scheme and provided it as a standard feature of
Nut'n. This copyrighted scheme is called Writing and
Drawings Don't Involve Nut'n
Good, or WADDING for short. This scheme also
facilitates compressed wireless communication, mainly
because WADs are easier to throw at someone than a
flat piece of paper.
USING THE PAD
To turn the unit on, insert a dull object, such as
a user, into the thumb indentation at the bottom front of
the device. Carefully lift the display unit from the chassis
and turn it from front to rear so that the cardboard backing
is on the bottom of the display pad, remembering to keep the
top up. Reinsert the display unit in the reverse order as
you did to extract it. The unit is now turned on. Inverting
Nut'n without holding onto the PAD could result in data
loss. Data recovery can be accomplished by picking the PAD
up off the ground.
To turn the unit off, repeat the above procedure
Sleep mode occurs when the unit has been inactive
for some time and will automatically be activated. To turn
sleep mode off, simply touch the stylus to the screen.
To remove a memo for wireless communication or
offline storage, grasp the window at the bottom (loose end)
and lift it up until it is beyond the top edge of the
display. Then using a twisting motion, pull it to the side.
Loose memos can be stored in the handy storage tray located
beneath the display pad. Simply lift the display pad up and
slide the loose memo underneath, then replace the display
The Nut'n PAD supports both portrait and landscape
modes, as well as right-hand and left-hand applications.
To use the PAD in portrait mode with a
right-handed system, place Nut'n in your left hand with the
pen holder on the right hand side and the PAD side turned
To use the PAD in landscape mode for a
right-handed system, turn the unit so that the pen holder is
on the side closest to your body and the end with the indent
(no not that indent, the one on Nut'n) to your left.
Remember, the side containing the PAD should always be on
top. Attempting to use the device with the PAD side down is
only for underhanded systems and we here at Concepts In
Motion don't do anything underhanded. In fact, all we do is
For use as a left-handed system place Nut'n in
your left hand with the pen holder on the right hand side.
Remember to keep the PAD facing upwards, away from the
USING THE STYLUS
To remove the stylus from the holder, slide it
toward the top of the unit until it is clear of the
Do not lift the stylus straight up out of, or push
strait into, the holder as damage to the holder and stylus
If your unit is equipped with nonvolatile memory, your
stylus will be equipped with a protective cap. The cap must
be removed in order to use the stylus. To do this, remove
the stylus from the holder following the instructions for
this operation. Then grasp the cap ( the short piece) by the
forefinger and thumb of one hand and the stylus (the long
section) with the other. Using a twisting and pulling
motion, pull the cap from the stylus. The stylus (remember
that's the long section) is now ready for use. The pointed
end of the stylus should be used on the display.
If you are using the EPROM version, there is no
protective cap. Simply remove it from the holder and use
Do not use the other end of the stylus on the display or
Nut'n may happen. If the EPROM version is used data loss
To put the cap back on the stylus, reverse the
procedure for removing it, but use a pushing motion instead
of a pulling one. Insert the stylus back in the holder by
reversing the process for removing it.
Always place the stylus in the holder when not in use
or loss of the stylus could occur.
READ THIS FIRST
See, already you've goofed up. You started playing with
Nut'n even though you know Nut'n about it. I'll bet you've
messed up the PAD because you don't know how to turn Nut'n
This device should be carefully removed from its tasteful
(no, that doesn't mean you can eat it) cellophane wrapper.
Some assembly is required and batteries are not
Carefully fold up the cellophane wrapper and store it
somewhere safe in case Nut'n needs to be returned for any
reason so our Technut'ns can verify that Nut'n works and
send it back to you. See, if you had read this first you
would have known about this. So now when you try to return
Nut'n for service, you'll probably take it to some packaging
store and get them to shrink wrap it in some cheesy plastic
wrap to try to fool us. We already know that trick - where
do you think we get our original factory packaging done?
Carefully inspect your device for damage in shipping. It
is only safe to use if there is Nut'n wrong with it and it
does absolutely Nut'n, and we can't be bothered with looking
for things like that. We're trying to make these things as
fast as we can to keep up with the demand which has reached
an incredible two a week, and more orders are coming in
monthly. Besides, we're not the ones who are going to use
them. We're going to make a fortune and then hire someone
else to do Nut'n for us.
Are you kidding? You can use Nut'n anywhere. With the
Special Optional Gadget, or SOG
(white tablet and dark wax EPROM), you can use this device
under water. It's perfect for sending letters to people who
are all wet.
You can use Nut'n in space. We know this for a fact
because we gave one to some real space cadets and they said
it worked great. Of course, we didn't ask them what they
used it for.
110 volts, 60 hurts. We know this because we once
accidentally stuck our fingers in a light socket.
220 volts, 50 hurts. See above but twice as much.
Maximum operating temperature: Fahrenheit 451.
Keep the Nut'n PAD away from open flames or data loss
We warrant this product to be a real Nut'n. The warranty
is null and void unless you send in the warranty card which
we think we remembered to include. We really want you to
send the card in, because then we can sell the mailing list
and really make some good money. The product must be
repacked in the same container that it was shipped in.
Attempts to fool us will be dealt with by Nut'n being done
to you or your device. Don't bother taking it back to your
dealer because he wants Nut'n to do with it and probably
packed up and moved on late last night anyway. If for any
reason we are not completely satisfied with your use of this
product we may send someone to your house carrying a violin
case with an accordion in it. Nut'n can go wrong with this
product because it's supposed to do Nut'n. Besides, our
rigorous testing would have uncovered any defects long
before you could. Each Nut'n is turned upside down to see if
the PAD falls out. If it doesn't, the device is perfect. If
it does, we put a drop of glue on the back of the PAD and
ship it anyway. That's real zero defects. Remember, this is
the perfect gift for the person who has everything -
