    :-) Not that it does anything other than to reduce noise.

    Hey Alls!

    This is my first fidonet echomail from an android tablet using a
    stinkin' virtual keyboard.

    Very good! I can't imagine tapping on a virtual keyboard for the long-term when participating in echomail either.

    A dead battery took care of that. However I did try using a bluetooth keyboard on there before it died. That was better but probably not worth the additional expense. I am doubtful I'll pick up the cause again seeing my curiousity has been sated and I now know that it is doable.

    Thank you for the confirmation.

    Life is good,

    It can be a challenge. But like anything, it just takes practice.

    I tend to spend so much time answering various texts, emails, DMs, etc due to work during the day that doing the same to answer echomail isn't an issue.

    It's not really for me anymore. But I have been asked how I manage on the smaller keyboard on the phone, especially since I'll readily admit even after all these years, I'm not a very good typist.

    It's a challenge at times. I usually get the one with the biggest screen I can find and keep the font size pretty large.

    Using just two thumbs? If so, your hand-eye coordination is probably aiding you nicely.

    I developed joint discomfort very quickly when I first experimented with NNTP messaging on my iPod and the virtual keyboard in just a few consecutive days of constant use. Maybe an echomail archive has a record of my comments. But that was over 8 years ago. The Blackberry Q10 keyboard does not seem to be as bad.
