Yes but GUT that's a Amstrad PPC 512. According to Melvin Harris, Barrett owned an Amstrad PCW 8256, a very different beast. I had one myself in the late 1980s. The monitor was huge. It certainly was not portable.

Apologies for misspelling Paul Feldman's name in an earlier post. Did not overwrite my auto-correct.

Ok I was certain I read he had a portable one, but I actually thought it was the boxier one. But it was an Olivetti

Is it strictly coincidental that the most idiosyncratic letter in the diarist's handwriting is the letter K? Or does that letter hold some special meaning for the writer?

Sorry, just dropping by to raise a little Cain. See you in another 7 years. Where's Omlor these days? The Mar-a-Logo clinic for writer's cramp?

If you turn the letter K ninety degrees to the right it resembles the profile of a table. Of course the killer put flaps of skin removed from poor Mary Kelly on a table. That could definitely, most probably, in all certainty, be a link.

Of course, if you turn the letter K ninety degrees to the left, it looks like an underscored V. Evidently, the writer is underlining the importance of the inverted "V"s on Eddowes' face, which - of course - make an "M" when joined together.
