Why consider MySL to replace some notecard use?  
  • Sometimes my notecards won't save when I finish them.
  • Sometimes my notecards won't open when I send them.
  • Sometimes delivery of my notecards fails silently
  • People can't find notecards except by title of notecard.  
  • Business communication requires find-by-sender.
Notecards still have advantages in some cases
