not much [Jul. 13th, 2006|11:29 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

Nothing much to report in my life. Things are fine, kinda boring. Mostly catching up from working way too much the last week or so.

Board games at Tom's tonight. We played Fearsome Floors, and it takes a LOT longer with six people who are actually thinking about strategy. (Last time, it was very late and we all played kind of haphazardly.)

My workshop at the beginning of the week went well. It was kind of a pain to have to catch the bus early enough to show up at 8:30, but the S bus goes right by the hotel it was at, at least.

Work is back to busy, but not stressful. I'm getting good at saying "yes, I can do that, but not until next week" to keep things from getting overwhelming. Hooray for having work that's mostly without built-in deadlines.

My coworkers are totally amazed by my super-ergonomic Kinesis keyboard.

Hooray for Kinesis! (well, mostly)

My coworkers at Novell had apparently never seen a kinesis either before I brought mine in, which surprises me since they're all professional programmers.

As much as I like my Kinesis, I do wish the company would develop additional models. Leper has suggested the "coders kinesis" with the left and right thumbs having an additional row of braces: (, {, [, <, >, ], }, ). It would certainly make my coding more efficient.

Wow, totally.

Actually, I wonder how it would do to just have an extra modifier key that turned all the letter keys into symbol keys, and got rid of all the awkwardly-placed non-letter keys.
