I realized I just circled back to EurKEY again. ^^โ€™

Well, what can I take from this adventure: QWERTY is quite compatible with German, there are โ€œEuropean conceptsโ€ already, I might actually get a US international keyboard

oh and you can use โ€œDeutsch โ€“ Standardโ€ as a keyboard layout on a Mac if youโ€™re used to the Windows layout but you have to use Xcode occasionally (this fixed it for my boyfriend at least ๐Ÿ˜Œ).

I was thinking about switching to QWERTY without making writing German way more difficult. There are a number of countries/languages who switched to QWERTY (keyshorts.com/blogs/blog/37615 this guide was quite interesting). If the Umlaute and the รŸ were shoved into an AltGr combination, you could just use ISO-QWERTY hardware, I guess ๐Ÿค”

I mean, there are apparently some attempts and ways to use them right away (source: twam.info/hardware/us-internat)

Maybe Iโ€™ll meddle around with this and create my own, personalized to my needs and get used to it, just to be irritated when using standard QWERTY or QWERTZ keyboards from then on. ๐Ÿ™ƒ (see why I think having this standardized would make some sense?)

This is obviously an attempt to push the user count of their platform and most people who want to play GTA V already bought it but the Epic Games Store is giving it away for free and I thought Iโ€™d tell you about the bargain.

(if youโ€™re actually curious, this video gave me the idea and the tools I needed: youtube.com/watch?v=ROBpXNonVx)

I now see, the quiz is actually about regions. My bad.

This quiz was trending in twitter for some reason and apparently Iโ€™m the Rheinland, which isnโ€™t really a Bundesland but okay

Berlin scoring lowest with 1%, wtf

We watched Tiger King a few weeks ago and my main takeaway is to question the motivation and methods of documentary makers more.

I play a lot of Minecraft lately, mainly to hang out with other people. I just tag along, I stock up materials and food, we fought an โ€œender dragonโ€... And I start infrastructure projects like canals, railway systems, bridges etc.

I hate how stressed out I am for no apparent reason. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
