Re: Stenography

I find this whole post unbelievable. There are reasons it's not used anymore. Do you not believe that I've bought a Georgi keyboard? I'll supply photos in due course. Do you not believe that I've always found interacting with computers a frustrating experience? Do you not believe that with sufficie...

It's one of those things that's difficult to measure. Because how do you get inside someone's head and measure how fast they are forming words in their consiousness?

Re: Stenography

I find 2 of those stats to be dubious. https://irisreading.com/what-is-the-average-reading-speed/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Words_per_minute Not that it matters much, what the actual speed stats are. It's clear to me that I can think and compose English a lot quicker than I can type it with Qwe...

Re: Stenography

You'd be hard pushed to think that fast. I think its only useful for dictation. Speeds. The average typist types at 40 words per minute. A skilled typist types at 70 words per minute. World record holder typists can type in short bursts at 200 words per minute. People speak at about 160 to 180 word...

Re: Stenography

They are redundant in modern times, court hearing and trials are digitally recorded. When they worked, they were essentially shorthand machines. Indeed, they were phased-out in UK courts in 2012. However, they are still used in the USA legal system. And they can be used for more than court reportin...

Stenography

Computers annoy me. They always have done. Always will. One of the things that has always annoyed me is how you interact with them. How I get information from me into the bloody computer. Typing is a pain in the arse. The Qwerty keyboard layout is stupid - for computer input. Typing is stupid. And b...

Re: Brexit Deal - one of the easiest in human history?

Brexit is happening and it definitely shouldn't be cancelled - but the consequences must be owned. In my opinion, the only good thing about it is that Johnson & Gove will be toast within the next 3 years. That's fine if you think Starmer and his gang will make a better job of not fucking up the UK....

Re: Brexit Deal - one of the easiest in human history?

It's easy to knock and to criticise. It's easy to be negative. Does anyone here have a good solution to the Brexit Deal - including the Northern Ireland issues? Bearing in mind that there's a vested interest amongst EU politicians to make it look like the UK is suffering as a result of Brexit in or...

Re: Windows 10 - speed-up tip

The whole philosophy of Windows 10 is that "We at Microsoft are clever and our Operating system is clever. Whilst you lot are complete idiots." Which results in Windows 10 being OK for idiots and annoying for everybody else. There's loads of other crap that Windows 10 has running / installed by defa...
