One-handed typing

in reply to The most useful form of typing is...

Yes, I know all the lewd jokes about one-handed typing. However, I shattered several bones in my left hand when I was younger, and was faced with the need to type one-handed. I learned the right-handed Dvorak layout out of necessity. My old speed was quickly matched, then surpassed.

I've since regained the use of my left hand (gotta love good surgeons), but I continue to use right-hand Dvorak. I type around 80WPM, which is plenty fast for code. And, I have a hand free to look up code in the Cookbook, sip my coffee, adjust my stereo, and so on.

An additional added benefit: if I get RSI in my right hand, I will just learn left-handed Dvorak, and let my right recover. ;-)

[Discipulus]: ah! so you mean if i need a static image i can use Twig, if on the fly better css selector and mody attrs (jquery?), rigth?
[LanX]: not sure what you guys are taking about, but a DOM manipulation in JS shouldn't be difficult
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah, that's what I would try (but so far, I can't even change the colors manually in the SVG, which is why I gave up ;) )
Discipulus bad sign..
[Discipulus]: italian doc says to modify somehow the initial SVG before using it with D3.js
[Discipulus]: LanX the fact is that my js ability is even poorer than my Perl one..
[LanX]: oh its negative? ;P
[Discipulus]: my warmest comprehension karlgoethebier ;=(
