Get Nick's TestIt from http://www.logictools.de, it's got a speed test for
any active store.
Real SRAM cards (f.e. Apple 1M, 2M types, cards with a battery!) should be
fastest, internal next because partly SRAM, too.
FLASH ROM cards, the most available, should come out slowest because of the
flash cell writing process.
Btw., there's no such thing as FLASH RAM, much as people would like you to
believe 8^).

Some people here used slightly alcoholic solutions, which should do the
trick since IIRC ballpoint ink is alcohol-soluble.
So, i'd ask again specifically on cleaning solution experiences and do some
tests with alcohol and ballpoint ink (elsewhere, of course! ;-).
