Watching streams of certain writers typing is very frustrating. They seldom get a sentence out without a nasty typo somewhere. This is alien to me. I had to write lots of essay tests in grade school; on one hand, you ran the risk of not covering enough points by not writing enough, and on the other, you ran the risk of going over time and increasing the probability of errors by writing too much. I appreciate that in reality these fellas have no deadline and have to stand behind every word instead of being tested on it, but man, it's annoying.

867 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8917 02:35

Do you mean they make typos and don't notice them? Or they make typos and have to backspace to correct them?

I'm definitely guilty of the latter. I notice the typos immediately, but it leads to a lot of wasted time hitting the backspace key, which is annoying. I've tried multiple times to better train myself with typing tutorials, but it seems at this point the bad habit is too ingrained.

868 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-8917 03:10

Pancakes and cereal for dinner.

869 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8917 05:07

I think they do notice them; it's hard to ignore red underlines. It's more like, they go back to correct it and get it wrong again. Knowing they're probably not dyslexic, knowing they get it right in the end, and knowing their blog or whatever is making them a pretty penny, it's as shocking to me as hearing a professional musician fumble over the same note.

Now, I'm sure I'm just being an easily rattled assiduous ass here; I don't mean to tread on people's difficulties. As I understand it, professional published writing is full of writers who can't in the least be trusted to not have a copyeditor.

As regards your habits, I for one do whole-word deletions when I typo; I would lose my context if I can't re-read my sentence correctly, but I don't easily lose the idea. I'm sure it's the opposite for many people, who accordingly should plow on through and go back later. That's probably more efficient for the kind of writing where you'd have to re-read everything anyway. However, I'm a shitposting reprobate who has to hit "send" within minutes or die trying.

Holy fuck I love driving this car. I don't even care if it's slow by today's standards.

871 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8917 08:43

I make typos when I try to type as fast as I can, but I remember the day I discovered you can alt+cursor keys to jump around text word by word and shift+alt+cursor to select text by the word, allowing you to fix typos much more quickly - I love feeling like a movie hacker!

872 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8917 11:42

Driving is generally fun and nobody can make me believe otherwise

873 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8917 12:38

I often feel myself making a typo because it just doesn't feel right compared to when I usually type the word. Ctrl-shift-left and just starting the whole word again (no need to hit backspace at all) is always faster than trying to backspace to the exact wrong letter and attempting to restart typing mid-word.

874 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8917 16:29

Interesting. For me the backspace key is easier to reach while typing than the left arrow key.

875 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8917 17:41

I make typos pretty much per sentence too, particularly if I'm on a deadline and writing fast. I usually feel when my finger presses the wrong key though, so I know I mistyped something before even glancing at the screen and I'm quick to delete everything.

876 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8917 17:44

Oh hey I didn't read your post, It's cool that I'm not the only one who detects typos by feeling.

Nothing worse than switching to a computer with a differently sized keyboard or a keyboard with an offset due to numpad.

878 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8917 18:53

Actually, getting stabbed in the eye is worse than changing keyboards.

880 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8917 20:40

It is for me on a full-sized keyboard too, but not so much on a laptop keyboard. I don't exactly know why I go for ctrl-shift-left instead of ctrl-backspace. Could be that you get to see the highlighting telling you what word you're about to delete (also making it easier to locate the cursor if you zoned out while typing), or because so many textareas on shitty windows programs insert ASCII DEL (127) instead of removing text with ctrl-backspace. Either works, but the main time saving method for me is starting the whole word again instead of from wherever the typo is.

881 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8917 21:14

What about getting stabbed on both eyes?

882 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8917 21:54

>so many textareas on shitty windows programs insert ASCII DEL (127) instead of removing text with ctrl-backspace

Ugh. One of the biggest reasons I avoid using Windows whenever possible is that so many elements of the basic user experience are so hostile and inconsistent, text editing being a prime example. Not that it's perfect in any other system, but at least there's an effort. Even the simplest Mac apps usually use Apple's text box APIs, and that goes a long way toward the system feeling like a unified system and not a writhing tub of spaghetti code.

I recently switched from a UK-layout to American-layout keyboard and found the experience fun, learning to touch-type slightly differently was enjoyable. But part of it was probably that my new keyboard is a huge improvement over previous keyboards I had used. Also, I still use a mac keyboard at work (which is an ungodly cross between the two layouts, at least in this country anyhow).
While I'm posting about keyboards, I find the numpad essential and any keyboard feels stripped of functionality without it, like I'm trying to interface using a game controller or something. It's the only thing making me hesitate about grabbing a POK3R and having all sorts of fun with custom keycaps.

An elderly Jewish man is lying in bed. He is dying. He calls out to his family:
"Moshe, my son, are you there?"
"I'm here, you meshugge old man" Moshe says, trying to hide his grief with a joke.
"You're a good lad, Moshe, you'll do fine" says the old Jew.
"And my beautiful daughter Sarah, are you there?"
"Oh, father!" wails Sarah in response.
"And my darling wife, you are here too? The whole family is here at my bedside, then?"
"We are all here, my husband."
"Then why..."
The old Jew coughs and struggles to sit up.
"...is the kitchen light on?"

925 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8924 01:17

>>924 17 years on and off, including 4 years of high school classes (so more time was spent on conversation than in, say, a college elective sequence, but the material didn't get as advanced). Someone who gets past that level and then really applies themselves (especially with modern learning materials) most likely would get to my level in a fraction of the time. My interests were and are too divided for it to have gone any other way; and I took a bit of a break for the past 5 years while I finished off my long overdue degree and then got stuck on an interminable job hunt... but that'd make a long story longer.

I did translations of nerd shit for a while up to that point, but it was frustrating because I was not building appreciable speed nor learning the language beyond the materials I was translating. Aside from the problem of being buried contextlessly in a dictionary, you end up spending lots of time on the task trying to come up with the phrasing you want in the target language if you really want to do it faithfully, which I did (so with that in mind, my words-per-day pace was surprisingly comparable to a professional despite my lower level of understanding).

There are a lot of differing opinions out there about how to acquire Japanese reading skills. None of them aside from "read a shitload of stuff you're interested in, re-read if you didn't understand, and remember it" really sounds right to me (I've heard it said that Frederick Douglass would circle words he didn't know and get back to them later). Naturally, the kanji present a significant obstacle; people make some ado about how the most common ones make up >90% of usage, but downplay that the rarer ones tend to be distinctive words that comprise the important parts of text: someone's name, a scientific or philosophical phenomenon, exactly what and how someone did something to someone else, etc. Like, you're not going to find an interesting story consisting mostly of "Where is the airport?" "This weekend will be cold and rainy" conversational fluff.

I recently started using Anki to shore up some grammatical vocab. Most people use it for studying kanji, but I've got like 1300 down reasonably solid (reading-wise) from just knowing a few thousand words by sight, so I'm putting that off for now. I expect to be capable of passing JLPT N1 someday, but I wouldn't feel that good at it even then.

>>935 Do you use iTunes? You can set an invisible "Sort Artist" different from the "Artist" field, so for instance it'll show 桃箱 but the Sort Artist is "momo". So can just type momo with the window open and it'll go straight to it. Or, sometimes if I have an anime OP single by one unique artist, the ED single by another, then all the character songs with the CVs listed for the Artist, I'll sort them all as the anime name to keep them all together.

Is there a script to turn kanji and katakana into romaji automagically? I use beets to organize my library and I presume you can extend it through a plugin to add the sort artist tag automatically, which is not a bad idea at all.

940 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8926 21:13

Kana should be fine and there seem to be plenty of scripts for that online (you could even probably copy/paste the table from wikipedia into a python script and add some commas to make your own), but I couldn't quickly find any for kanji so you'd have to call out to google translate or something and give a confirmation prompt for each translation, because they will all be wrong. Maybe there's a kanji->kana script designed for learners that you can use in 2-step translation

941 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8926 22:15

Unfortunately kanji->kana conversion is non-trivial so you need a "morphological analyzer" such as Mecab, Kakasi, or Stakk, and none of them are perfect. It doesn't help that song titles are likely to have kanji with weird readings. What all this really means, >>939, is that you should just stick with today's special.
