Update: Some parts of this post can be read better than others. It is in part because of the hectic operation of my kebyoard what is really not woking properly and letterrs are really some times missing or doubled, trripledd.

Obviusly with more attention and time spent I still can write well too – but it takes much more time than usually and I cut on it in this post for better effect – and I a bit added to it too, as it is known for ages some missinng letters won’t make a text totally unreadable…
