My Macbook is in the shop after acting up in some truly annoying ways. I don't think the problem is serious (the inverter or--I hope--the inverter cable), but in the meantime I am writing things in longhand. It's very, very strange. I usually write using a combination of handwritten notes (usually involving diagrams and sketches and little arrows here and there), typed notes in TextEdit (often quotations and freewriting), and a main document in Word. Right now I'm really missing those poorly labeled .txt files sitting on my desktop.
Anyway, replying to email and such is going to be spotty for a while.
