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?
#fediversefleamarket Any UK folks want to buy my Pocket C.H.I.P.? Works fine, holds a charge etc. Just don't use it.
After a couple of months of occasional use, a flurry of writing activity last week has (I think) finally broken in my Pilot fountain pen to be a real delight to write with. Not quite as buttery smooth to write with as my ageing Pelikan, but I can write with it and not end up covered in ink. Which is nice.
I head up operations in a small Manchester digital agency, write python code and listen to noisy music
