More of the Mnemosyne thing

Over the last four days, I've worked my way through the hiragana, the feminine-looking type of Japanese syllabic script. I'm keeping well clear of the katakana, the masculine type, until I have the necessary mental distance to not get them mixed up. Which may be a time. Anyway, I have convinced the program that I did indeed correctly recognize each and every character, not by guessing but by remembering. This is a good thing. Today I finally got to the end of the deck. This too is a good thing. Also, I am utterly convinced that by now I have forgotten most - or nearly all - of the characters I learned the previous days, and quite possibly those from this morning as well. This may or may not be a good thing, that's the problem.
