According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground.

The bee, of course, flies anyway.

Because bees don't care what humans think is impossible.

Yellow, black. Yellow, black.
Yellow, black. Yellow, black.

Ooh, black and yellow!
Let's shake it up a little.


To bee con tin you'd.

Lumi, if a doubling (or more) of your typing speed is not worth learning the complexity, then Plover is not for you. That being said, Plover is definitely hard to learn. It's not something to take lightly.

However, I can feel myself getting better already! Persistence!

I have no idea if you meant tulpa001 or me, but if you meant me: Maybe, I dunno. I certainly want to type faster.

Okay then, quote a line of Shakespeare.

I haven't read any Shakespeare. plz no hate

Quote:Also, you were right about there being a gyroscope in that copter. A tiny six axis. (Which I think means three gyros and three accelerometers.) The thing is still impossible to fly stably.

HAH! I knew i -- I mean, that's interesting.

|Make sure the copter is properly balanced weight-wise, and nothings clogged in the motors (hair can get stuck in them sometimes)

Other than that, practice practice practice. I would recommend going to a large area like a park to practice, and also note that things will be slightly wonky when you're really close to the ground, it's actually easier to control when it's like a foot in the air (or more).

I said I think a setup with that many keys, and a function key to switch which letters they are, sounds better. Hitting multiple keys at once just sounds terrible. I'm sure you get good at it and it becomes less bad, but it sounds like it makes the most retarded typos. Also I might be biased because I don't use my pinkies to hit any letter or punctuation keys, just shift/enter/ctrl etc., so it'd be a good use for them.

Also I'll be impressed when you can type 120wpm like me. Trying to type any faster makes me feel like a tryhard, so when you get to that point you're officially gettin' gud!

If you just want to type faster, why not learn Dvorak and touch typing?

"Touch typing" and Dvorak are so drastically different they shouldn't even be in the same sentence, I had to look that up to make sure I knew what you were referring to. If you type more than 60 words per minute you probably can "touch type". If you've got spare time to learn a new typing system you could probably already type at least 100 on qwerty.

Dvorak is.. interesting. If you really have the time to sit down and memorize it really quick, so that you can use it without a huge amount of hassle in the near future, you could do it. I seriously doubt you'll ever see any improvement as it's debated whether it's actually more efficient and you probably already know qwerty well, but, whatever.

I don't even like the setup for stenotyping and I recommend it highly over Dvorak if you're serious about typing faster. But if you can't type at least 100wpm on qwerty you've still got a ways to go with it anyways.

I don't get why you're doing it if it isn't for a job though. I have a naturally high typing speed that simply comes from using a keyboard since before kindergarten, and how long it takes me to say something is really more hindered by how I'll run out of things to say long before the typing makes much of a difference.

You've probably seen my long-ass progress reports. Those take an hour to create, and typing them takes less than 10% of that time, the deliberation is what causes me to take so long.

I suppose it's not exactly logical, I'm just interested in it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

We Are Number One but it's written by Jean-luc in Plover.

It's too big.
