and then he said "Come back you can get it for $2" and i was like deal. So it was a big steal!
Haha, I've done that with my second monitor on a flea market and got it for 2,50 instead of 5.
You were lucky that you could get it for $2, I've seen them on the market for 60!!

Haha, good job! I saw that aswell, in Sweden it's 759 SEK(around 70 euros) and i got it for 20 SEK(approx 2 euro).

Long story short the seller didn't know what was in his hands.

The only thing that I dislike about getting faster at typing on the computer is that you might forget how to do it on a piece of paper with a pen. And I know that is it kind of oldschool but I do think that it shouldn't be taken away. For example in Finland some schools if not all have decided to scrap that students need to learn cursive writing.

Many, if not all, schools in the U.S. have scrapped cursive. I had to use lettering (non-cursive) for my jobs for so long, I have serious trouble writing cursive for anything other than my signature.

Face it, with everyone using computers, the need for cursive is pretty much gone. Frankly, I don't miss it since it often was so hard to read. Writing from people with a bad fist (poor penmanship) is almost always easier to read when it isn't in cursive.

True but it just feels kinda wrong, I mean the humans have always used a pen and a paper but now suddenly it has to be taken away and I don't think it is such smart thing to do. I think humans will become less intelligent by taking away these small things, like there are Finnish politicians that want to take away the Swedish language making it a language you can choose but it wouldn't be a must to learn, and for me that is reducing knowledge, but hey that's just my way of seeing it.

Using that logic, we would still be using the Sumerians' clay tablets. Keeping documents on paper is primitive and inefficient as is writing with pen and paper. The only way I will buy a dead tree book anymore is if I cannot get it in e-book format. It's ironic that we can transmit moving pictures around the world in little more than an instant, travel into outer space, sending probes outside our solar system and putting humans somewhere other than Earth, etc. and yet people miss and cling to outmoded technology such as handwriting and dead tree books.

I can type really very fast, problem is, I am the only one who understands the result, say text.

I have severe dyslexia and needed the spellcheck 5 times for this these two sentences. I love the 8 because you cannot go wrong with it.

I hate any 3 or E, P or q, I or i or L or l, nightmare

It was luckily diagnosed quite early ( about 7 years old ) I am also left handed, never ever know Nord from the west, or south or east, or left from right. Was forced to write with my right hand, can now write with both, but 2 completely different handwritings, like two different people. Can also write the same word in mirror way

But I am an enthusiastic reader and read fast. But at the end of the book don't ask me the title or the name of the main character.

PS at the end of this, Grammary thing told me I had 21 mistakes

I passed all my exams, because I am a good talker and speak 4 languages fluent.

It's a funny old world ...........

Don't waste the trees is my motto. I like books and have a few hundred hard backs. Mostly history of some kind.
If mankind got rid of everything old fashion many of us wouldn't be here.

When they cut the trees down to make a parking lot of some sort of complex, make books out of the trees.
Paper is made from many things.

Over the centuries, paper has been made from a wide variety of materials -- wood pulp, rice, water plants, cotton, even old clothes! But no matter what you use to make paper -- you need "fiber." Today's paper fiber comes mainly from two sources -- pulpwood logs and recycled paper products.

Trees are the biggest living thing on our earth ! and the oldest ( I think, apart from some mosses ). They are all unique. I could not live in a place without trees.

Also, they provide us with the good air, because they remove carbon dioxide. They give us food, fuel and timber and all sorts of rasin.

But most of all ( for me ) they make the landscape beautiful and create shade. O yes, and X-Mas trees

I am running 7048 32bit, and to me it seems a bit sluggish compared to 7022. Maybe I'm just oversensitive. HA! Anyway, the one anoying thing is, that I have no words in the normal pop up boxes.
