Pen Mod

I noticed that writing on the Newton is easier with my rotring Quatto-Pen Data than with the regular stylus, but somehow, the rotring pen has a slight annoying rattle. On the other hand, we have tons of Pilot Super Grip mechanical pencils at work, which feel quite comfortable overall. Well, it seems that with a little bit of drilling and sawing and some super glue, it's very easy to fit the "data" tips of the rotring (or other styluses) into the Pilot pen. And voila, the "Pilot Super Grip Data" is born :)

The reason I got stuck on this was that the Pile of Notes approach works very nicely, it just requires that you write down your thoughts the moment they come up.
