Could you start by running 0 tinyBenchmarks? That would be helpful.

As a longtime Squeak PDA user, I've interacted with Squeak in 3 ways:

1. Using the OS's input methods (virtual keyboard, HWR, etc),

2. Using a virtual keyboard for Squeak that I wrote, or

3. Using an updated and modified CharRecog.  CharRecog is a really neat
character recognition engine that, if memory serves me, Alan himself wrote
for Squeak.  Unlike Grafiti, you have to train it, it doesn't come with
any built-in set of gestures.  To use it, I used to define one of the
hardware buttons on the PDA I was using as the hotkey to start it within
the text field. I think there is an alt key command that will start it as
well, but I don't remember what it is. I also added an item to the
scrollbar menu to start it.  I've written a fair amount of code and text
with this- once you get it trained up enough, it is pretty useful, and it
is very responsive.
