ahh, foot pedal.
That was cool. I just mapped my foot pedal (Kinesis, in case you were going to ask) to send nothing on press, and space on release. So I caught up on lots of LJ with very little hand movement. I can rest my foot on the pedal most of the time, which feels better than hovering, and just release it to page down. Sort of like a brake pedal. It's not helpful for typing prose (maybe code), but great for leaning back and browsing /. or LJ.

I'd fiddled with it once before (came set up as shift, which is really hard to get used to), to send space on press, but it would fall into key-repeat way too easily. The release event never gets repeated, so it's more controllable this way.

Ack! He speaks. It's kinda like that scene in Chasing Amy, where Silent Bob gives his monologue! :)

Incidentally, hi. I don't think I'm on your friends list, but feel free to add me. You're on mine, so you'll actually be able to see all my entries.

(If you haven't figured it out, this is Dawn, aka Star@Chaotic.)

Yup, I added you when kareila reminded me after we got back from NY. I just hadn't gone back and read any entries lately.

Why did I never make that connection before? (Robby = Silent Bob)

It seems so obvious now! I'm married to a real Silent Bob.

Thank God I don't have to put up with anyone like Jay. :)

I love Silent Bob. He amuses me. :)

Btw, you two commented at the exact same time. That trips me out vaguely.
