I wish I could have been there


The Pro-Life Action League just completed its summer Face the Truth Tour. Generations for Life has the coverage. It turns out that someone tried to steal the signs and beat up one of the organizers.

If you've never been, any event run by the PLAL is the most peaceful protest you are likely to see. It is organized, efficient, and the protesters quietly hold their signs. Many peorple are supportive, but the opponents are almost uniformly rude. I am not surprised that someone was violent this year.

Now that I've learned the Dvorak keymap


I want one of these:




Typematrix
makes what looks to be a pretty neat ergonomic keyboard. What intrigues me is that they line up the keys, rather than having them at the stepped angle they currently are at. Plus, the thing is small and can go in a backpack.

Someday, if I can make a little cash. . . .

I've joined a cult



I've switched over to the Dvorak Keyboard. I type a lot, and this should save me time and pain in my hands--I've been practicing on it quite a bit and haven't had any trouble, unlike the QWERTY layout.

Plus, it makes me the clear front-runner for the prize of biggest geek in my family.
