Happy Hacking Keyboard 2
I got my Happy Hacking Keyboard Professional 2 a few days ago. This are my initial thoughts. There will be a proper review at some point.
What I was looking for was a better keyboard than the Apple ones I have been using. Ideally one that I could use both at home and with my Windows computer at work. I wanted something small, with a US layout, with good typing experience. With arrow keys, home, end etc.
As of typing this, I have had it for three days. And I have gotten used to using it for the most part. Getting used to having arrows under a fn key was a lot easier to get get used to than I expected.
It is great to type one, and it is compact enough to fit in any bag my MacBook fits, while at the same time not feeling like a small keyboard. It looks small, but the keys are not small.
Clojure functions pre and post
Sometimes when I read in the Clojure docs on my phone, because I don’t have anything better to do, I find something really interesting. Like a few days ago when I found out that you can set lists of pre and post conditions for a clojure function. That means that you can add a list of predicates (boolean assertments) to run either before or after the function runs. If it runs before it checks the parameters, and if it runs after it checks the result.
The way it works is that you get a Exception if any of them are anything but true.
I think this is a really cool idea.
Nock.co Index Cards.
I just got some Index Cards from Nock in the mail the other day. This is the first pack of Index Cards I have bought in years. They have never been a part of my system for many different reasons. Mainly because I think books are more practical when you have a very portable setup. Sometimes I write in the office, other times my home office, or on the train or using the table in the living room. You get the picture.
But I got a Talluah as a part of the latest PenAddict Kickstarter. So I figured that I had to find some index cards to fit in it. And of course Brad had made some from Nock.co. I don’t have much to compare it to except the really think and cheap ones we had at home growing up.
These cards are smaller than the standard. Exactly the same size as a business card.
It will be a seperate review of the case and how I use these cards later.
These cards are great, handles pencil and my fountain pens great. Exacltly what you expect from Nock.co. They are not cheap, but not that expensive either. $5 for 50 of them. I got four packs of them, and I’ll probably get more of them soon.
I recommend checking out the Nock.co ones if you are looking for some great cards that work with more or less any kind of pen.
