i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
                                    i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
  
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
  
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

following the naming convention used for BEAKL Mu or mash up, BEAKL Ti is derived from Thumb I..

I home Q

It continues to score well against other popular and more exotic layouts on klatest – even with the newly increased thumb weight penalty – and feels like my keyboard layout search may finally be answered.

The layers of Thumb H – with the H and I swapped on the alpha layers – are inherited by BEAKL Ti with the following amendments..

home row shift

is augmented with additional remapped Shift keycodes, notably extra Tab and Enter keys for each hand. This provides a more rhythmic Tab Enter sequence to the previous alternating thumb sequence which the rolling thumb action (coded with QMK) attempted to smooth out..

caps lock

was previously managed with the traditional toggled caps state. Under normal circumstances this posed no problem but rapidly triggering the CapsLock with alternating toggle layers can leave the keyboard in a CapsLock state (as a result of a QMK timer conflict with the toggle layers and the CapsLock), requiring a keyboard reset.

Rather than attempt to debug this rare timer event conflict with the CapsLock state and the toggle layers, it was more expedient to implement the CapsLock as an additional toggle layer and capitalize on the macro’s timer management..

layer

Note the complete set of punctuation keys, retention of the thumb Tab, Enter and Del, and the availability of the cursor Navigation Layer from the CapsLock Layer.

Home row modifiers could have been implemented with literally next to no effort but are intentionally omitted for lack of a use case with the CapsLock Layer.

a subtle but significant change to this web site.

The home page now shows the most recent articles posted for the various topic threads which comprise this site. Dependent on publication date, not all topic threads will necessarily be represented by their latest journal entry. Regardless, this should now make the home page appear less stale dated.

Surprisingly, despite not having touched the web framework code for quite some time, these changes were simply and cleanly implemented with a dozen lines of Ruby code without too much head scratching. The original design continues to hold up well.

Originally cobbled together with html generating shell scripts in its earliest incarnations as that proof of concept, it morphed into a web framework whose underlying technology became a point of interest – vimwiki with sinatra allowed content to be mapped and reviewed effortlessly in real time.

Starting out initially as a resource for clients, it has grown to include a repository of the knowledge accrued during the creation of the site itself and then some – the WWW being what it is as a meta library of itself. I like the metaphor.

There are still a number of posts to share regarding the tools used along the way to create all this. And broader horizons to return to. There is nothing being sold here. But if you find something of interest, be it metaphysical, technical or otherwise, wonderful.
