My Neo seeing the light of day again

Hey all in the Alphasmart - Writing Tools group. It's a been a while - I'd say roughly six years - since I last poked my head through the door. I do so today because I'm a little excited. You see, I took my Neo out in the open yesterday for the first time in as many years as I've not visited here.


I grabbed the Neo because I had to write up a fairly long piece but didn't want the inconvenience of writing it by hand and then coming home and having to type it on to the computer (also, I was fighting time constraints). Sure I could have grabbed a laptop or the iPad, but I try to keep away from mobile technology as much as possible these days, and it felt like the Neo would fill the middle ground nicely so to speak.


It did. And aside from anything else I was reminded of why I bought a Neo in the first place. I would even say that it somewhat rekindled my love affair with the machine, and although I wouldn't be as explicit to suggest that the Neo is going to magically return as one of the pillars of my writing routine, with my reacquaintance and the dust and cobwebs shaken free from the machine, there's a good chance I'm going to reach for it a bit more often. Good news, eh? :)


So, how is everybody doing?
