Tungsten C Day 7 -- Graffiti 2 Nits

After 6 years using Graffiti, it's been a bit of an adjustment for my fingers to start using Graffiti 2, the patent-driven new text entry method chosen by Palm. Most of the letters are similar to the old Graffiti, as are all the numbers, but there are some serious differences (e.g. drawing capital letters down the divider between text and graphic entry) that keep getting me in trouble.

A few other nits and thoughts:

  • It's almost impossible to draw a lowercase L followed by a space -- the Palm keeps thinking I'm drawing a letter T instead. :(

  • The need to draw on the screen rather than using a (non-existent) Graffiti area has one downside: as with the Screenwrite hack I used on my IIIxe, you need to hold the stylus on the screen a few seconds before the Palm realizes that you want to select something rather than write a character.

  • Getting a comma rather than a J is a real trick.

  • The fact that a single tap draws a period, rather than double taps, keeps tripping me up. I end up with periods where they don't belong.

  • The need to shift for certain punctuation marks but not others, and to use one side or the other depending on the mark, is truly annoying.

  • I often use a Bullet character when taking notes. Under Graffiti 2, a bullet requires about 5 awkward strokes, including a shifts, a dot, two lines and another shift. Instead, I've set up a short cut of .. to make a bullet. Just draw the shortcut character (the loop-the-loop) and two quick periods, and I get a bullet.

Anyway, it's still cool...and I was able to wirelessly browse at the CompUSA in Happauge today! {Jonathan}

when you write an L, do it somewhat over to the side so that the line for the space doesn't cross it. Hope that helps ;)

He that is robb'd, not wanting what is stolen,Let him not know 't, and he's not robb'd at all. nolvadex buy nolvadex Now is the winter of our discontent Made glorious summer by this sun of York, And all the clouds that loured upon our house In the deep bosom of the ocean buried. Now are our brows bound with victorious wreaths, Our bruised arms hung up for monuments, Our stern alarums changed to merry meetings, Our dreadful marches to delightful measures. Grim-visaged war hath smoothed his wrinkled front; And now, instead of mounting barbed steeds To fright the souls of fearful adversaries, He capers nimbly in a lady's chamber To the lascivious pleasing of a lute. But I, that am not shaped for sportive tricks, Nor made to court an amorous looking-glass; I, that am rudely stamped, and want love's majesty To strut before a wanton ambling nymph; I, that am curtailed of this fair proportion, Cheated of feature by dissembling nature, Deformed, unfinished, sent before my time Into this breathing world, scarce half made up, And that so lamely and unfashionable That dogs bark at me as I halt by them,-- Why, I, in this weak piping time of peace, Have no delight to pass away the time, Unless to spy my shadow in the sun.
