I wonder, how much more popular has Colemak become this year? And do we have some new records/speedy typists? How do we compare with Dvorak and other alternative layouts?
I haven't been interested in typing due to hitting a physical barrier due to issues with tendons and wrists, but after randomly trying TyperA for a few minutes for nostalgia, I got a few 170+ WPMs and realised that I can safely grind such slow difficult text every now and then, attempting to surpass my PB of 182 and perhaps even defeat Sean's record of 183, and so I am now curious again. Perhaps some lighter mechanical switches could help, considering my mx browns are slightly muddy and require more force to press after a few years of heavy abuse and spills, but I am not aware of any, and I also don't have money for that at the moment.
I prefer the slow pace of forums over the chaotic pace of Discord servers, so that's why I'm asking here :D Feel free to send me a friend request on either Steam (https://steamcommunity.com/id/Xayiver/) or Discord (Xayiver#9303), I'd love to chat with fellow Colemak typists once in a while!
Edit: I'm also thinking about finally trying out the DH and Angle mods. I used to dismiss DH, I'd say I did so blindly as I haven't tried it and I shouldn't be judging without experience. I'm a bit unsure about the angle mod because my keyboard is ANSI. Now that I don't care about speed, I'd appreciate some downtime.
