@skynebula I like the style of the drawings... looks like spaceship equipment

@Wolf480pl @skynebula

these have aesthetics very similar to genuine portable electronic equipment from the 1990s, combined with the brighter colour schemes that were (and to an extent still are) used for the SE and East Asian markets (in Europe its more common to have grey/black/silver cases)

Have you tried `Dot-Dash Keyboard` for Android?

@neb @skynebula
Sadly, I'm becoming more and more certain with every passing year that I will never learn cw :-(

@gemlog
Oh!
I just changed my keybord to dot-dash and within a week my thumbs spoke CW.

@neb ok, you got me - going to f-droid on my device right now! :-)

@gemlog
Just swipe upwards to get the cheatsheet out!
Unfortunately the project is dead and the latest beta is on Play/Yalp/Aurora.
It has swipe feature which can be fun, but tapping is cool enough.

@neb Yes, it's very cool!
It did take me a few false starts to notice that I had to indicate I was 'done'.
Also, talk about a security device in a way ;-)

@gemlog
Security as in "How the hell do I type one this stolen device"?
Yes, probably strange that it's not real-time typing.
A problem is that I wanna "morse" in another way I have to translate from my fingers to the other medium (sight/sound, etc).

@neb That was my next question. Now that you know the code, how does that translate to an actual key or listening?

@gemlog
I doesn't translate very well.
Use some Unix terminal and install a Morse training program to train the ears!

@neb I installed something called 'koch' method I think a few years ago on my phone. Probably that then.

@neb

Xerox invented the original (as they did a LOT of things) and then sued Palm to stop using it. Palm modified their copy to be a bit different. Dunno how this other company ended up with it.

You can learn the strokes in a bout twenty minutes.

Last time I went to install it, it wanted a zillion perms, so I didn't :-( Too bad.

@neb I wasn't thinking of stolen per se, I was remembering back to when someone just 'borrowed' my phone of the coffee shop table and began looking up something.
However, I had a grafitti keyboard installed and they soon gave up.
(forgot to push enter - someone dropped in on me with a large bag of fresh cherries...)

LB: ok but seriously, how can i get that "Potify" tape player irl

@skynebula
I just looked through your art station profile the whales are pretty awsome also love the volume wheel on the potify player.
