About Me


A place to learn what kind of things I do, what I do at school, and what I am interested in.  Note that there is nothing Newton related here.



A few links to the best pages out there, books that I have made, reviews of various programs, and the two text to speech apps.



This is where my friends and I split up long homework and then put it back together.

* The same apps were on each except the mp2k had works & quickfigure works, nethoper, all enroute extensions, & button bar plus (so these slowed it down somewhat)

** These are not super fast times because I have over 300 names

*** I can not write exactly the same every time, so this is not an exact comparison.  It does give you an idea of how long it would to take a not with the mp already on however.

**** As you can see by the time, unfreezing must be really processor intensive, as the time difference is almost 10x!

***** FWIW I forgot to turn inktext on the mp2k the first time and it converted hw to text much faster than my mp120 just put it into inktext!  The difference between inktext and text on the mp2k (differed vs. now recognition) is almost unmeasurable.
