Jacob Carpenter’s Weblog


I’m a software developer in Bellingham, WA.



  1. Sorry to clutter your blog with a comment that actually pertains to mine … I didn’t know how else to contact you.

    I don’t program, but I do a lot of command-line network management stuff on a proprietary system that requires a lot of [] (though not so many {}). This did throw me a bit, at first. To help learn the new location of these keys I put a little nub sticker (to achieve the effect of what’s on the F and J keys of a QWERTY board) on those two keys. In time I had this worked out.

    I would also like to point out that the location of these characters on QWERTY is pretty arbitrary, and uses the pinky as opposed to the slightly longer and stronger ring finger. Anybody learning on Dvorak from the get-go wouldn’t have any unique hurdle to get past.

    Please feel free to delete this comment from your blog … I won’t be the slightest bit offended, as it has nothing to do with your post!
