I ordered a new keyboard yesterday, with cherry mx blue switches - good job no one else is nearby when I'm working these days
My current keyboard has brown switches. Occasionally I get told off for typing during meetings if I forget to mute myself
I mostly try not to be doing other things during meetings - it drives me crazy when other people are not paying attention
yeah, but that just means they shouldn't be there or the meeting is sidetracked by someone
Have you told them you don’t like it when they do that? I’m sure they’d appreciate the point.
i often take notes during 121s, which requires typing - our 121s use a shared document (all our regular meetings do the same), so that we can see history, put things in for discussion etc ... but answering emails during a 121 seems kinda dysfunctional !
At somewhere else I worked, 1-2-1s involved filling out a form, which was mostly tedious, but not entirely unhelpful
it works really well for all kinds of meetings @U0105JJK1L3 - create a google-doc, or whatever, for the meeting, and put it in the calendar entry
if you encourage a habit of looking at the doc before the meeting then you find that for some meetings, e.g. daily standups, much of what might be talked about gets dealt with in the doc comments before the meeting starts, and the meeting ends up being much shorter and very much to the point, so win!
i know, sometimes people are jerks, but then that's a whole another problem that doesn't start at the organizing of the meeting
I guess it is not that easy to determine if someone is paying attention or not. I can’t look at people when I am thinking so when I am talking to someone or am in a meeting and have to think about something then I often look to the side or stare to the ceiling. The people that work immediately with me know that but others might not. So others might think I am not paying attention when I actually do.
I used to work in an office where a couple of developers would take their laptops to all meetings and keep coding during the meeting
I mean, I found half of those meetings pointless, but I would just skip them, not go and not pay attention and code a bunch of crap that would have to be fixed later because I was distracted 😁
and a couple of days ago during a standup someone said that they had a bunch of meetings that day, but probably could code a couple of tasks during those meetings... and no one seemed to mind that (I am leaving soon, so I didn't push too much on it, but did mention that they could just not go to the meeting)
i wonder if during the building of the pyramids the skilled workers were complaining about the unnecessary meetings : D
"i probably could've cut two more corners during that pointless exercise of verbalizations"
I got the 4 root, which is roughly the same, except the hub part has usb 2 ports instead of usb 3
Yeah, I'm looking forward to trying it out. I've always wanted a Happy Hacking Keyboard, but they're pretty pricey
the happy hacking switches are so nice though... both sound and feel. They seem like they are good quality, a friend has had one for 8 years or so, and he used to carry it around to the office and it's still working fine.
There has been quite a bit of progress in mechanical keyboard design in the last few years, it’s really different to 5 years ago
I just checked and the new version and they are usb-c + bluetooth, plus an even quieter version... I was ruined by columnar split layouts, so at least I'm not tempted by the hh
yeah, a bunch of keyboards now have configurable firmware, which is so so so good... These days I work from home, but a configurable keyboard was priceless when hooking it up to the locked down machines in most banks, where you couldn't even remap caps lock to ctrl
Yeah I’m typing this on a keyboardio atreus. My third split. Using these jwk shogoki switches that arrived last week. I use my old realforce topre for games. I have an unbuilt think 65v2 because I wanted to try the new style alu case and gasket mounting
@U11EL3P9U Do you use a wrist rest? My current one feels a little high with the Das Keyboard 4
I feel they get completely in the way and makes me even more uncomfortable when I've tried them.
