whaack: bonechewer: thanks. I'll give the vitamin b-6 a try, and I'll consider dropping the $$ for the kinesis, I tried a ergodox keyboard before but did not like it (couldn't get over the learning curve, also I detested that keys changed function based on how long you pressed them for, maybe I could have configured away the problem but never got around to it)
whaack: asciilifeform: Would you like me to put my bot (named trbexplorer) in your chan?
whaack: asciilifeform: also re the common trb delays of which an example occured yesterday, is there any use in creating a dummy "dumpster diver" node that aggressively reads from the prb world and feeds trb clean blox?
asciilifeform: whaack: put bot here, why not. plz describe how to use, tho (or did i miss a link to src?)
whaack: asciilifeform: I still have to writeup a use guide and clean up the code before publishing the source with a vpatch.
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2021-06-14#1039138 << for so long as newly-mined blox continue to reach trb net 'organically' (and they do, if w/ the occasional hiccup) i've not taken any interest in improving interoperability w/ prb. (for one thing, there's a mind-boggling firehose of outright liquishit that hits you as soon as disable 'malleus' -- from 0 of which are

asciilifeform: extractable genuine blox , try it some time)
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2021-06-13#1039128 << welcome to #a, bonechewer. (consider staying logged in...)
snsabot: Logged on 2021-06-13 18:05:47 bonechewer: I am a long time reader of loper-os, see e.g. http://www.loper-os.org/?p=3706&cpage=1#comment-19893
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2021-06-13#1039129 << asciilifeform is actually half-convinced that 'rsi' disease comes from the use of non-spring keyboards.
snsabot: Logged on 2021-06-13 18:05:59 bonechewer: I had the symptoms whaack describes (numb/painful ring finger and little finger) after starting a full-time developer job in 1997 (!).
whaack: asciilifeform: why would that be?
asciilifeform: consider, pressing non-clicking keys (with short, often enuff, travel distance) is rather like smashing yer fingers against a brick. repeatedly, all day, for years, decades.
asciilifeform: whaack: the click is a tactile 'stop'. (while the spring effectively absorbs energy)
asciilifeform: i've yet to (afaik) meet a suffer of rsiism who contracted it on clicking kbds.
whaack: asciilifeform: this is a good point.
asciilifeform: this of course is merely asciilifeform's observation, with own eyes. but 100% to date.
asciilifeform: ( there are other factors i know of, mainly the use of emacs with default settings )
snsabot: (trilema) 2018-06-19 asciilifeform: as repeatedly pointed out by e.g. naggum, the defaults pre-date pc kbd and are ~guaranteed to give you carpal disease
snsabot: (trilema) 2014-09-22 asciilifeform: switching caps lock and ctrl << 'Emacs actually comes with a builting Emacs Aptitude Test. Do you remap your keyboard or the Emacs keybindings before the chords and sequences it comes with by default have wreaked havoc with your hands? If you do not do anything to make Emacs more convenient for yourself, you may not have the prerequisite aptitude to use it productive.' (naggum, who else. http://www.xach.com/na
whaack: asciilifeform: right, i let myself get to the point of mild suffering. perhaps it's already too late, but at least now i've switched ctrl with caps lock
whaack: suffering is an exaggeration, but it's clear that there is a big problem on the horizon
asciilifeform: afaik it's never entirely too late, simply that the radical cure (i.e. keep hands entirely off kbd for a yr or 2) is not affordable to most sufferers
asciilifeform: whaack: wrist destruction, i suspect, comes from even more radically human-hostile computing, specifically laptopisms
asciilifeform: (on decent stationary workstation, there oughta be ~0 wrist tension no matter how strenuous the kbding)
whaack: asciilifeform: right, I don't use a laptop setup for any extended period of time. There's a fundamental problem with a screen connected to a keyboard. Your neck has to be bent down to view the screen if you have the keyboard at the proper level for your wrists.
whaack: not to mention that all the keys are crammed together
asciilifeform: aaha, take yer pick b/w carpalrot & hunchback
whaack: ahaha precisely
trinque_ stretches back, flexes wrists, emits cacophony of crackles
verisimilitude: To add another detail, I've noticed the Emacs chords I used oh so much are entirely useless when my right hand is on a trackball, allowing me to click instead.
