Happy Hacking Keyboard Professional 2

26.11.2018 09:00

I love this keyboard, but it might not be for you.

The HHKB is a compact mechanical keyboard. The keys are normal size, but some keys, like arrows, F-keys and various others are only available under the Fn key, and the Control key have been moved to where most keyboards have the Caps Lock key.

I love this keyboard and everything about it, because it feels great to type on, the size makes it very easy to bring everywhere I bring a laptop. The width of it is basically the same as a 13” laptop. But the alternate layout might not work for you. If you like my prefer to spend all day in Emacs or VIM for that matter, then it is not a problem. Because you don’t use the arrow, home, end, page up / down keys for much. But if you use something like BBEdit or Visual Studio Code you might not find it to be the best.

It is a UNIX keyboard, with some strong ties to how the keyboards of the old LISP Machines had. Like I said, it works great for me. And I love it so much that I am bringing it back and forth to work until I get around to ordering a second one

Index Cards. What are they good for?

26.11.2018 09:00

The first thing I start to do when I get some new piece of stationary is to start experimenting to find out what I like to use it for and not, and then I start to compare to what I currently use for that and after a while I figure out what the current “best thing” is for everything.

There are three things I use Index Cards for these days:

  • Capture.
  • As a heavy duty tool for task management.
  • To bring notes into meetings.

I love using Index Cards as a capture method, because I write it down, and then I process it at a later point, and I can just throw it away. No crossing out or anything like that. Sometimes, like now, when I need to write a couple of blog posts before I leave town for a few days, I have taken two cards and written down the title of both of them on its own card. It is a method I use when there is something that is more important than anything else. I write it down and put it down next to the keyboard. The third thing is that sometimes I need to remember a couple of things in a meeting, then I often just put it down on some cards and bring that.

The running theme on where I think cards are great are for stuff where you can sum it up in a few words or a short sentence and you are going to get rid of it as soon as possible. But anything longer than a short sentence is better served by a small or large notebook.
