Dvorak, 3rd year

The past 1st of November marked the anniversary of my switching to DVORAK. I took some time for myself, visited TypeRacer to have some fun and compare results from previous years (see 2017, 2018). Already having surpassed both my previous speed and accuracy I didn’t have any expectations this year, just checking how I was doing.

In terms of accuracy, it looks like I didn’t make great progress. I’m a bit below than the past year mean wise (98.7% vs 98.2%) and also falled short in the number of times I reach 99% accuracy or above. However, I’ve improved my bottom accuracy in half a point (96.4% vs 97.1%).

Speed, thought, is a different matter. It continues to improve rapidly in every metric: the lower bottom, the number of times above 70, and the mean have increased (71 vs 74).

Meetup WordPress Lugo

Hai uns meses atrás, Carlos liouse a manta á cabeza e propúxose retomar a programación do meetup de WordPress en Lugo, logo dun tempo parada. Lhosca e máis eu decidimos botar unha man e en Xullo presentamos a nova etapa, coa colaboración da maravillosa xente que organiza o meetup (e WordCamp!) WordPress Pontevedra.

Logo dunha pausa polo verán, comezamos o outono coas pilas cargadas. O próximo venres 25 de Outubro, imos a falar de Gutenberg, replicaremos webs co editor de bloques, e veremos cómo estendelo. Temos prazas limitadas, xa podes reservar a túa na web da meetup.

My first plant

My parents in law got me an evergreen bonsai for Christmas, a Ficus Retusa.

It’s not until recently that I’ve got interested in the idea of growing a plant. I find fascinating that you can mold a living being to your liking, within certain constraints. Every branch contains a possibility, and you’ve got to decide which ones to develop. The fact that it’s a slow process that takes years to fully see the results speaks of the patience and constant caring you need to put into it. I don’t want to think too much about that because the thought of committing myself to something for so long is scary! At the same time, I’ve found a sense of calm and bonding in things like cleaning every individual leaf of the tree once a month – I can understand much better now to Paul Richardson, the exo-botanist of Mars.

Being the first plant I own, I’m still learning a lot about everything: its watering needs, what’s a good pruning balance, how to identify and treat pests and diseases, etc. So far, it’s been enjoyable.

The luxury of a desktop app

These apps are just little icons on my desktop bar. I don’t even have Bluetooth enabled. The amount of memory they consume is a luxury.
