    Dvorak. Never succeeded, but try searching tags 'ripsavz' for my new keyboard layout. No XKB file yet.

    I still can't see why should someone learn DVORAK. Yes, I know it has its advantages, but 99% of the world's keyboard is QWERTY, and having spent all my life working with QWERTY, it just seems unnecessary.


    For me, it's probably Qt (don't know whether I'm just being lazy or I have yet to find the right documentation) That or the ability to NOT explode when something **** me off.

    Like others have already mentioned, foreign languages are hard. I believe I speak English quite well now but that's after a lot of exercise. I also began learning German about 6 years ago but perfection is still nowhere in sight. /sigh

    Dancing. I once almost drove a renaissance dance instructor to a nearly homicidal rage. Some people have tin ears. I have tin feet.

    Patience, empathy, and the fact that all things in this world are mutable and ephemeral.

    When all boozed up, I dance like Elaine from seinfeld.

    When I'm sober, it's worse.
