I knew that the ANSI layout is better for programming than the standard Finnish one, but hot damn I did not expect this much of a difference. You can write all of these without any modifiers, this is the biggest hecking revelation: ;\/=
(Curly braces are also easier, being just a shifted  instead of altgr+7/0.)
And you can type ~ and ^ easily with a single keypress instead of that type-twice-to-output-once business. This is wild.
Started writing a UI crate so I could write a Mastodon client with it in September, now I'm almost at a point where I can confidently paint pictures on the screen. And ltr text without any technical weirdness. Admittedly I haven't been writing this full-time or anything, but wow writing software takes way more time than I ever predict.
Writing up plans on my space bunny game for the space bunny jam. I really hope I end up making this, it's very fun, cute and also really outside my comfort zone as far as artistic effort goes, the idea would require me to actually draw art for the game and compose music / jingles at the very least. I really enjoy these bursts of inspiration right before sleep, unfortunate that I can't usually conjure them up during the day.

Got my Leopold FC750R PD keyboard with Cherry MX Clear switches. These are certainly going to need some getting used to after 6 years of using MX Blues, but I feel like I type lighter on these. Which I think is a good thing. Not a fan of the ping though, especially if you bottom out, there's quite a loud "ping" sound when the key jumps back up (I think).

Weird thing: my #rust code seems to run faster on my Windows 8.1 compared to my Arch Linux. Specifically, rusttype-related code, and my drawing code which is basically just pushing floats into a Vec. Maybe MSVC optimizes my specific use case better?
Please develop your software on low-end machines, so you you know it's performant enough for anyone. I do!
