For the last 3 months I have been programming a lot so I thought it'd be interesting to count my daily key presses. I created these files to log and count my keystrokes:
- Gnome desktop files to initialize the key logger and counter when the session starts:
- A key logger
- A key counter
- I'm really impressed with the results. I didn't imagine that I typed that much.
- My typing speed is about 100WPM.
- I use Vim as my text editor so it's not a surprise that my most-used keys are
l. 70% of my keystrokes land in the home row. This makes editing much faster and has saved me from repetitive strain injuries.
- My productivity with Vim is so high that i've become very dependent to it.i dont like to be dependent so i will be using gedit more often.
- Not all keystrokes are "real". Some times I hold a key for 2 seconds and that's recorded as multiple keystrokes even though I only pressed the key once.
- I have Caps-lock and ESC keys swapped (good for Vim users).
