I type faster when I am irritated.

    When I am emotionally inflamed, (and I mean both inflamed and irritated in their broadest sense, not essentially as bad things, as they have come to mean) I type with much more urgency


    now, this intrigues me because of a completely unrelated piece of data


    many people who are seriously into morse code, esp. radiomen from an era where it was widely or exclusively used, can tell who is sending a specific message by their manner in transmitting morse code, the rhythm, the length of the dots, and dashes, the fashion in which it is punctuated.

    this is called a "fist"

    and, I suspect, one could record the audio of many peoples typing, or build a nice multi agent piece of software that could identify someones "fist" in relation to a keyboard, but, that's not the main thrust of this thought

    would someone's fist remain essentially the same regardless of their mood?

    I mean, it's a different tempo, absolutely, but would the inherent rhythm remain the same?

    or would the deviation be, calculable (say fist : mad fist is and equivilant ratio to say 2 : 2x*e that is to say, can you still recognize the accent, despit this variation, and is the shifting something that is recognizeable through a formulaic process? by that I mean to assume that it is an incredibly complex process, which the complex computers that are human minds, could, perhaps decipher by our amazing, nigh unto quantum computing pattern recognition skills)

    I'm pretty sure you intentionally make some of your techie posts convoluted as to be harder to understand, thus making you look more intelligent.

    actually, I try to make them more clear, but, honestly, I usually am unwilling to spend the time required to do so, and try to meet a compromise between precision and simplicity

    which, sometimes, does convolute things further

    but that is never the intent.


    and I didn't even think of this as a techie post :p I just thought it was a neat concept (I imagine one could write a piece of software that could identify someones typing style though, but, I left out most of that, because it is just too techie)

    It is a neat concept. If it is completely impossible for any two people to ever have the same handwriting, then it is probably quite possible to determine who different people are and what mood they are in by their style of typing.

    You know there is software that knows when a cat is walking on the keyboard?

    wouldn't know, I trained my cats not to walk on my keyboard, so I lack need of it.

    in person I get immediate feedback

    and people are less reticent in regard to asking questions in person if one is going on about something they don't understand, as there is the actual act of engaging in conversation

    there is something invested in talking to someone

    here, no one but me, (and now face eater and you) has (have) anything invested in this thread, it's okay to lurk on the internet

    lurking in conversation is typically called eavesdropping.
