13 Nov 2020projects: steno
Got a little practice in. I realized I’m not yet ready to fully
drop the progress-tracking. My reasoning is that I’m doing this from at
least 2 different computers still, and Typey Type doesn’t have user
accounts, so if I want to track progress there I should copy the file down
after every session.
Thankfully I was able to quickly build a CLI tool that will help me merge two JSON files into one, summing the values along the way. That should help in the task of saving the progress JSON at least.
I also remembered that because Georgi only has the two rows for my fingers
instead of a steno machine’s standard 3, the third thumb button (on both
sides) is my number bar modifier.
I wonder again how I might use the extra two pinky keys on the left side too, since I probably won’t need–wait…i’m not so terrible at georgi qwerty! [that last phrase only took several minutes to puzzle out, and even then i didn’t know all the punctuation keys]. Anyway, even while I’m doing steno I’ll want a way to hit arbitrary shortcuts. That’ll be interesting.
