New Majestouch mechanical keyboard delivered today. Initial impressions very good, and so much nicer to type on than my old £5 PC World one.
Disappointed that it needs so much input from me to type well though - I thought it was supposed to mechanise the whole process for me. It's like the misunderstanding with my 'walking boots' all over again.
Current typing speed (according to 10fastfingers) is 29 wpm. This is considerably slower than my looking-at-the-keyboard speed, but I feel like I'm getting why it's worth sticking with now. It's a bit like speed reading in that you have to trust it and let go of thinking about the process; I always slow right down and make mistakes when I become aware of thinking about the keys.
Libreture doesn't care if your ebooks are "traditionally" published, are from a small indies press, or published by the author themselves. Doesn't need for an ISBN either.
You'll always be able to add your DRM-free ebooks, comics, magazines, or RPGs.
Added the very different Zeneca to my list of Goodreads alternatives.
I like the way Zeneca allows you to display your books and shelves, and really drives engagement by giving you the ability to quote-post and (I think) describe your shelves.
A reply to another thread had me looking up my first computer. A Z80-based Research Machines 380Z. Apparently you could max it out at 56K of RAM, and the basic price was around £3.5k. External storage allowed you to ramp it up with two 5.25" floppy drives.
I remember buying a floppy for £1 and being annoyed that I only used a little bit of the 75-or-so KB available.

Just a toot to thank you to be here for so long 😘🎉
I have an unexpected empty day this weekend. Time to dust off the IDE and do the long-overdue Laravel update ready to get Tasksapp back out and live.
Lots of changes planned around getting some of the org-mode way of working into the app. I am almost-seriously-I-think planning on moving to a less stressful job to free up the headspace I need to get focused on it.
What's the worst that could happen right?
I head up operations in a small Manchester digital agency, write python code and listen to noisy music
