Driving to work, I realized I forgot my laptop. Not a big deal, because I have a laptop at work. Just some of my writnigs and notes and whatnot are on my personal laptop.
Get to work and realize I remembered everything else for my laptop, including my charger and headphone adapter. But still somehow managed to forget the laptop. I sometimes amaze myself by just how stereotypical-absent-minded-professor I am.
@Nikolai_Kingsley They may have to switch between laptop and PC, but I doubt many if any of them have seen a teletype or VT100. They were using what I think was their own Surface tablet to write Java code, and they were hunting & pecking.
If I type on any computer that isn't my own, I often have to look at the keyboard, because I can't touch-type on QWERTY anymore, because Dvorak ruined me. I just don't know how I would have gotten anything done if I always had to look at the keyboard.
@CoronaCoreanici I didn't read your bio very carefully, because I missed the part about DM before requesting to follow. I saw math, demsoc, and other things that made you seem like the cool sort of person I like to have in my timeline, and I got excited.
Feel free to disregard my request. My fault for not reading carefully.
I'm a comp sci prof, gaymer nerd, nature lover, bibliophile, and writer, among other things.
