This well-constructed site contains answers to just about everything you're likely to ask about Roman writing tablets - though whether that "rings your bell" or not is another matter entirely. :-)

As far as Tironian notes go, here are some related books from the site's extensive bibliography: for example, I'll be sure to have a look at Ganz (1990) next time I'm in the British Library...

I couldn't find this quote at all - can you remember where on the site you found it?
