ARRRGH! I really must know how you people do it. I want the secret! I'm
tired of being the only person on Earth whose handwriting the Newton
won't recognize accurately.

OK, remember a couple of weeks ago all that hullaballoo I made over
being able to graffiti a sentence accurately in 22 seconds compared to
writing it on Newt in 30 (complete with typos for me to fix)? Well, the
thumbboard is even faster than graffiti for me. I just pounded out the
"Time has come..." line in 20 seconds flat---a dead heat for the time it
took me to write it out on paper with my Parker 51.

I despair of this! If I could write accurately with Newt it would be
only a third slower than graffiti for me, not three times slower! And
seventy zillion times more convenient.

So: how is it done? Please discuss.
