Can you stand writing on an eMate? I thought it would be a great writing 
machine but I found it painful to work with anything but very short 
documents. In a nutshell, the problem is revision. I guess I am spoiled by 
modern word processors because I jump around a lot and I'm always thinking 
of things to insert, move, or delete. Almost nothing I write comes out all 
straight and linear, but grows like some kind of knarled fractal.

It is, however, a pretty spiffy telnet terminal with PT100 or a serial 
link to a PC.
