Dvorak Keyboard

⚠️ This is an old post

It's possibly been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the years. That probably means, at best, there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any advice is probably out of date and irrelevant. Or it is really old, it was the wafflings of a teenager with too much time on his hands working out what blogging is… If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.

You've been warned! Onwards…

As you can see my keyboard has undergone a bit of modification with the new addition of little bits of cut post-it notes. The keyboard layout was designed to be more efficient than the traditional QUERTY keyboard and also more ergonomic to prevent RSI related injuries. The rules put in place were:

Now at the moment I am not really enjoying the benefits of this system; I’m teaching myself to type again which is a painfully slow process, but I am looking forward to enjoying, hopefully, faster words per minutes! If anyone can point me towards a good online tutorial for this it would be gratefully received!

For anyone who has a deep longing to learn more about the history of the keyboard layout Wikipedia has a pretty dull article on the topic!
