    Handwriting analysis software: Patsy and the Note

    I know we have discussed this before but we seem a bit flat at the moment so I thought I'd resurrect this:

    http://www.writinganalysis.com/ramsey.html#Notewriter


    It's not really conclusive bit it is interesting and the summary of Patsy is fascinating.

    Have spent a bit of time today on various graphology websites. They are astonishingly possessive of their JBR work and tend to charge per view and have major controls on how their information is used. I have e mailed the British Institute of Graphology to see if they will let us have their materials.

    Rumor has it that he was kidnapped by a small foreign faction – no word on the ransom amount.

    something to ponder:

    When the corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and the mortal have put on immortality, then shall we be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

    O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory?

    The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law.
    But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
    1 Corinthians 15:54-57
