Johannes Me That Duck

I just wanted to embed my self-hosted WP-theme repository for this theme, via iframe on my blog post.

I recently added some microformats in a single commit, that I would reason over, here.

Check Out the Bill on That, Duck.

I always turn that screen off if I’m watching a movie. Now Win10 wants to turn off my notifications when I full-screen any other monitor. #nothanks

I got a little side-tracked while figuring out the computer and didn’t notice the time. https://chris.willcock.ca/

My Keyboard

The daily duo; my keyboard and mouse.

I acquired my Ergodox kit from Massdrop.

I have Colemak at power-on, Qwerty-toggle on the top-outermost index position on each hand, and a third layer, which I seldom use, for the right-hand numpad. It was 5 hours of soldering for an out-of-practice fellow like me. The hundred-and-some SMD diodes should be thrown far into the woods gave me some years back on my technique.

This purchase amounted to 350 USD in 2015.

Once the Ergodox was programmed and in daily use, I found no need to favour sore wrists.

After a short time spent considering how this fit in with my desk, my mouse snuck in between the two halves. There wasn’t room to the right, but that desk-estate in the middle there is lucky.

A larger desk, like my 2016 office desk would be better.

Also five keys for each hand and attached to my chair would be handy closer at hand handsome good for my posture.

I could type in sexagesimal chords.

On second thought, it would be six keys per hand, there being a palm button.

Better yet, palm trackball on the right with palm masher on the left (-click)!

Are you an aficionado of human-machine interaction builds? Post about your keyboard, etc. and mention this post so I can hear about yours.

Neuroscience, Learning, Teaching and Star Wars

Awhile back my youngest son, Thomas, had the need for special medical attention at the IWK Children’s Hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia. (Aside: all is well.) We had some time available to us after the appointments there, so we took in a visit to the Discovery Centre.

We found there a head-to-head game, where participants don a headband with sensors that read brain waves. Whomever is the more successful at producing the appropriate brain waves advances their on-screen avatar quickest to the goal and wins the competition.

I did well enough to win my one match, but the family didn’t take time to discuss and develop strategy. Who’s got time for that when you have three hungry children, on the road, a few hundred kilometers from home?

Different kids (still all mine), different day, different location (near home of course, 😛 ).

I’m not on the road today. Instead I’m thinking about microformats. What they are and what they are not. Tiring of thinking through the method of objectively classifying content it proscribes, I started searching around online for others’ various documentation of the classification of subjective experiences. Thereby, I located the linked article.

Do. Or do not. There is no try.
