Re: [Rollei] Obsolete skills (was Why the 6-element lens for 3.5Fs)

I think this is even more obsolete. I had to learn penmanship with pen
and ink. In elementary school, I had an inkwell in the top right hand
(that's right, the state didn't recognize left handed writing) corner of
my school desk. We had to wear smocks over our school clothes to keep
them from being soiled with ink. 
Oh, and yeah, this was in France, the land of Liberty, Fraternity,
Equality, etc.
