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)

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.

beakl mu redux

monday, 16 april 2018

mashes up the BEAKL mu layout further by applying the HIEA home row of BEAKL EZ to the left hand, thus, resolving the UAI same finger issue of BEAKL 8 in favour of finger rolls.

The BEAKL mu (8+10) layout still reigns supreme on Klatest over this latest mashup of 8/EZ+10, as to be expected with the H now on the left pinkie, driving up the finger usage score somewhat. But it still scores quite well against it and other layouts.

What is gained unexpectedly is the lowest same finger scores consistently across the board for English prose against all layouts – at least, the default dozen Klatest keyboard layout selections, which include the usual suspects plus an assortment of more rarefied layouts.

Of course, scores don’t tell the whole story. The final litmus test is in use where one’s typing predisposition comes into play. And for me, the significantly increased finger rolls and decreased same finger usage is both noticeable and preferable.

My final(?) layout for..
