comment Where do you have your Control key?
Forgot to mention that many latops only have one Ctrl key, which makes this switch a no brainer IMO.

comment What are some ways to be more productive with Emacs?
Plus having some level of elisp fluency, will open a world of configurability. As soon as something annoys me I just try to fix it. Also yasnippet allows for programmable snippets which can save tons of typing (like alter the pattern inserted if you're in a header or implementation file, and about a million other tricks).

comment Do we really need to save source code?
This is the only aswer I've found to be counter-productive for what I was describing. I don't work much with compiled languages, but can definitely see how I'd turn this off on first try...

comment How to bypass middlemen?
I just had some great feedback on a quick throwup version I did, without being asked to. I redisigned a bunch of things, and the client likes it more than the initial plan. My contractor probably passed it as his own idea, but this way I'm making clear the value I can add to a project. Things will get easier once they agree to have me meet the clients in the first stages of the project, but that's a step. Cheers @TomWij too.

comment Which tips helped you learn touch-typing?
from then on, I would never use the wrong fingers on a key. While not looking at the keyboard is, of course, a sound advice, I've found that what's key to improving is to systematically force myself to use the proper finger, as taught is touch typing courses. This makes it easier to just build the habit as there is a rationale behind it, and if I mess up, more often than not, it's because I've strayed from home row, and try to use the wrong finger, just because it seems it'll be quicker.

comment How to bypass middlemen?
This is actually what we are doing, but the product was poorly designed in the first place (by advertising sales yes-men). So I build knowing there will be some redesign once the customer tries it. Management won't recognize we started off on the wrong foot, pretexting "that's what the customer wants". So I have to stick to the plan until the client says otherwise. That's how it is for now, but I'd like to come to an agreement for future projects. The problem is, I think the middlemen would be wary they may lose their slice of the cake once the customers realize they aren't much help...
