Dvorak Keys

March 12, 2008

So the other Saturday night in the pub, with my deaf mate Fint, we were rambelimg on with the usual nerdy computer talk and i mentioned how i was learning to touch type, very slowly i must add!

So fint mentioned the Dvorak keyboard layout, as an alternative to qwerty. 10 days later and here i am with my brand new keyboard! It’s wicked! i hardly have to move my hands to type….. well worth 9 pounds from ebid.com. Go try it out for yourself!

Earthquake!

February 27, 2008

earthquake

At 00:56 this morning the UK was struck by it’s largest earthquake in nearly 25 years. Cool eh? I was still up and reading, and have to admit it scare me to death at the time, the shear fact i had no idea what was going on!

I live 100 miles from the epicentre which supposedly occurred just north of Market Rasen in Lincolnshire, but the noise and power was incredible. The quake measured 4.7 but has certainly been enough to awake the people in the UK that we are not immune to such phenomena.

If you felt the quake, wherever you may be, you can help out the British Geological Survey by compiling a quick survey to aid their research here.
