the result of too much typing.

no not carpal tunnel.

i can not hand write more then a few sentances with a pen or pencil with out my hand cramping up. also my horrible spelling has gotten even worse along with my handwriting. neither were very good to begin with.

back in the day in school taking pages of notes for class or hand writing rough drafts are over and it is easier now to type eveything.

I have to hand-write almost EVERYTHING here at work except for bills.

My hands hurt after a busy day, very crampy.....

I agree. I remember writing long papers with a pen/pencil...and now, I can't write a few lines without my hand hurting.

But the computer is so convenient!!

Oh yeah, I hear ya on the spelling too. I used to be a spelling master...now its all up to spell check.

Yeah, I have always had shitty handwriting skills (ie..chicken scratch). Not sure how fast I can type, but it's pretty fast

Just so much easier/faster to type something out rather than writing it

I used to have pretty nice handwriting. Then I got out of HS in 1994 and gradually wrote/printed by hand less and less. Everything I do is typed now. Cursive? Aside from signing my name on random stuff I haven't written in cursive in probably a decade.

What's writing? I type everything. If I write something it looks like I am having a seizure. The only "old school" thing I prefer is readingout of a book. I can't stand scrolling through a pdf when I have to read a 200 page document, especially with two columns.

cursive, blech! I remember in elementary school learning that, and how the teachers said 'You'll have to write all your papers in school like that!' Hah. What a waste of time, other than to make something look 'elegant', but i'm sure there are few people who actually can both write cursive, and make it look nice lol.

You're 12 years younger than me. At least you probably had computers in grade school. We had two in the library that I used maybe 5 times to play Oregon Trail and Carmen San Diego. To us, typing wasn't something we did all that often. I didn't use a computer consistently in school until a keyboarding class my senior year in 1994. So I (and people my age/older) did have to write everything by hand in cursive. Even multiple page reports!

You kids don't know how well you have it.

haha, that would suck! (cursive that is)

I remember oregon trail and carmen san diego! my mom had carmen san diego a long time ago, I was little and all I remember was having to use a giant book to figure out where she was maybe.

speaking of old games that were wierd like that, does anyone remember the game called 'vette' or something like that? Old ass game from mid-90's, that you had to answer a random question to play, so if you lost the fact book, you were screwed (with no google to help lol)

this thread reminds me of an article I read the other day. Seems pretty dead on...

http://www.macworld.com/article/1362...ndwriting.html

Quote:
I have a 19-year-old son who is absolutely brilliant. He finished high school with a 4.0 grade-point average, scored a 1500 on the SAT, and was accepted for admission to the U.S. Naval Academy. Yet this brilliant young man has the handwriting of a 4-year-old. It's humiliating. And why is this the case? Because he grew up in front of a keyboard. Virtually everything he ever did involving the written word was typed.

If there's anything good to say about his handwriting at all, it's that it's not quite as horrible as the "handwriting" of my 14-year-old son, who has even less experience away from a computer and whose scrawl looks like he was holding the pen between his toes. With frostbite.

You no doubt have seen the same thing. People over 35 generally have lovely handwriting. The 25-to-35 age group has decent handwriting. And the under-25 crowd is a legibility laughingstock. It's all because of computers. And it's kind of a shame.
