    My handwriting has never been stellar, but it has been legible since high school....that is until I got my Treo 270. While writing a note to my wife this weekend I realized my handwriting quality has deterioriated BIG TIME.

    Anybody else noticing this?

    P.S. I haven't timed my self, but I can thumb type with the best of them.

    'Writing," a practice from way back in the 1990's, where people used a stylus-like insturment (circa early 2000's) in a manner where the strokes left marks on paper rather than on-screen.

    I know it sounds wierd, but that's how people used to record information.

    So, if you wanted to send it to someone, how would you do that?

    Nah, man. Your handwriting is as good as its ever been


    but seriously, yes i have. I hate writing anything longhand. Frankly its out of laziness rather than lost talent. I prefer to type everything out nowadays.

    Someone asks me for my email or sn and its like ugh.

    My handwriting has gone to crap also. I remember when I was learning Grafitti on my first Palm, I started using the strokes in real writing. Im a keyboard person myself. Dont ask me to write a check!

    check? that is what online banking is for.

    my penmanship always sucked, so I cant blame it on graffitti, but graffitti did work its way into my everyday writing.

    now, i'm shocked that 's dont show up when i'm typing on the pc.

    There were these machines called faxes that would eat your piece of paper and then regurgitate it out from another fax machine that your friend would have. Don't ask me how all that paper fit down that skinny little telephone line cause I sure don't know.

    Anyone know what a "stamp" is?

    Someone asked me for one today and all I could tell him was that is was the date and time in the header of my email and I really didn't know a way to give him one unless he wanted me to send him an email.

    He looked at me kind of funny ...
