  1. Scratches head… admits defeat. Invicta: clamp the machine to your desk and tie a weight on the end of a length of string to the left platen knob, letting the weight dangle over the edge. Hey presto! Two handed typing. I listened to a very interesting edition of Word of Mouth by Michael Rosen about Original Pronunciation vs Received Pronunciation, especially in respect to Shakespeare’s work. It shone a light on hidden riddles. Worth a listen, if you haven’t already: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06ycr4v

  2. Very nice to have the typeface to use Old English. The poem in Old English reminded me of the book How Green Was My Valley by Richard Llewellyn, but if I remember correctly it was not O.E. but Welsh, a big difference.
