    I have no trouble reading it, but it is eerily similar to my own handwriting in a few ways.

    Just make sure the ink is dry before you put it on the scanner bed!

    Oh, I don’t know, Marko.

    1. You hold a fountain-pen with your fingers – i.e. digits.

    2. The Internet is a digital medium.

    3. Therefore, a blog post written with a fountain pen is entirely logical!

    Is the Neo jealous yet?

    Heeheeheehee…. Cool! Just think of it as penmanship practise.

  5. Tam says:

    I can’t change the goddam font size; your fountain pen obviously isn’t Firefox-compatible.

  6. M. Philbrick says:

    No problems reading it at all; your handwriting is much better than mine. Cool change of pace, interested to see how you figure out the hyper-links…

  7. Paul Simer says:

    For links, use image maps.

  8. Jeff says:

    Did you re-learn to write in America? Your handwriting doesn’t look like most German handwriting I’ve seen.

  9. eBookGuru says:

    I would try that, but I fear not a single reader would be able to make it out…

  10. “And blue ink.”

    now that’s funny!

    great longhand compared to mine; use it or lose it…i spent so many years filling out pawn forms and 4473’s in all block caps that i almost can’t do cursive (legibly) at all anymore…hmm, maybe that explains my sick aversion to the shift key too!

    Firefox versions 3.0 and higher magnify both text and picture elements. It is very nice for those of us who run a monitor at very high resolutions.

    You have just saved me from having to futz in my nVidia control panel every time I want to browse porn.

    I mean look at small images. Er. Yeah… thanks! Yeah.

    The only thing I really couldn’t make out was your friend’s name. It looks like “Mork” or “Monk” but I think I’ll settle on “Mark.” Yeah…that’s it….

  14. *lol* You put the line over the “u” to differentiate it from the “n” and “m”!
    I started attending a German school in 8th grade, and most of the students did that too. I didn’t adopt too much of the German cursive, my habits were entrenched by then, but I did learn how to properly form my 1s and 7s.

  15. JIGSAW says:

    hehehe … now that’s what i call a challenge. Your handwriting is quite legible as far as i’m concerned, but then again, i used to do temp work as a PA so i’ve seen LOTS of REALLY BAD handwriting.

  16. Morq says:

    That was me, Christina.

  17. ibex says:

    There’s also something utterly weird about reading a handwritten blog post.

  18. Al T. says:

    Oh, not a good idea. Makes my eyes hurt.. 😦

  19. Breda says:

    Oh, I like this idea! Can I copy it? (and you have lovely handwriting)

  20. John Hardin says:

    How many tries to get it right?

  21. John says:

    I like your handwriting. 🙂

  22. […] blogging system Marko demos a new blogging system. I kind of like […]
