I agree. In all my years of writing notes. I can remember only one incident
where I was at a total loss afterwards to figure out what I had been
attempting to write. The fact that it stands out (and is still probably in
my Newt, waiting for me to figure it out) is proof to me that this problem
is much greater in perception than in reality. :-) I do usually, however,
try to get back at the nearest opportunity to fix any mistakes I made.
(Notice the blame here. Most errors are mine, not the Newton's.)
