This is great. A contest was recently held between a 13 year old girl w/ a T9-enabled cell phone and a 93 year old telegraph operator to see who could send a prescribed line of text the fastest. Well despite the 13 year old's speedy thumb and predictive text entry, she still got her butt whooped by the morse code-wielding telegraph operator.

Back in grade school, I bought some morse training tapes, and started working through them for a few days, but as usually happens, I got distracted by some other endeavor and forgot about the morse tapes. Oh well. Maybe someday I'll actually get my Amateur Radio license (not that I need another hobby).

Edit...Thanks for Mr. Miller for the vid. Here's a video of a similar contest that was aired on Leno a while back.
