verisimilitude: My keyboard should arrive today, after which I'll be typing more again.

dpb: asciilifeform, my node caught up some time this morning or afternoon
asciilifeform: dpb: congrats!
verisimilitude: I type this on my new keyboard.
verisimilitude: I type rather slowly, for now.
verisimilitude: I'm not yet certain it's more ergonomic, as I hit each key rather hard.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: hit hard because springs are stiff? or some other reason?
asciilifeform when reviewed the vintage microwriter, considered the lack of individual adjustment for the keys to be its primary weakness
asciilifeform: for 10 (or even 5, on one-handers) keys, it'd be eminently practical
asciilifeform: (pedant could note, 'microwriter had 6 keys'. but 6th arguably 'meta'.)
asciilifeform: iirc there was at least 1 'chorder' where one could pull a key 'down' (towards wrist) as well as pressing -- permitting no less than 242 distinct symbols
asciilifeform: if anyone can recall which device this was -- plox to write in.
verisimilitude: I'm still rather slow with this.
asciilifeform never got far beyond ~1 char/s w/ 'microwriter'. but did not try for very long.
verisimilitude: No, hitting hard because I'm unaccustomed, perhaps.
verisimilitude: I'm slowly getting faster.
asciilifeform: in the mw, though not adjustible, the keys were imho done right -- ultra-light touch, closer to mouse clicker than any pc kbd action in the force required
asciilifeform: at the same time it made it reasonably comfortable to rest the fingers.
verisimilitude: At least my fingers aren't flailing around.
asciilifeform: thinking about it, modern components would make it reasonably practical to (1) measure the force applied by the user (2) adjust stiffness to individual fingers to make for constant perceived effort
verisimilitude: Still, I can tell I've been typing with it.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: i.e. tiring? (or opposite?)
verisimilitude: Yes, tiring.
asciilifeform: aa
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: which kbd was this again? 'bat' 1-hand ?
verisimilitude: Yes.
asciilifeform: at 1 pt i tried to find a teardown, but not found. still have nfi what's in it (specifically, which switches)
verisimilitude: I've read they're mounted upside-down, for ease.
verisimilitude: This seems true, at a glance.
verisimilitude: I know notice the stress felt isn't in my hands.
verisimilitude: It's mostly near my elbow.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: could be from position of hand, rather than the keys. gotta experiment.
verisimilitude: I'm not very relaxed, but perhaps this will change.
verisimilitude: Yes.
asciilifeform always pictured that a 1hand chorder would work well attached to chair handrest
verisimilitude: It probably would.
asciilifeform: and ftr imho 1 of the thumb reachable positions oughta be a trackball.
asciilifeform: (as i understand, engelbart's chorder was meant to be used with a similar philosophy -- in left hand, with mouse in right, for cursor-local commands)
verisimilitude: Well, I've already a trackball.
asciilifeform: rright, but i expect it takes up whole hand while in use
asciilifeform: (as mine does)
verisimilitude: Yes.
