I think I am getting the hang of it.
Ha! You won't be impressed by that but I did that without pressing the correct keys on my keyboard. It was all combinations.
I couldn't write any more because I got frustrated. The dictionary that that program uses is different from mine so words that I expect to come up come up as something totally different. For example, I wanted to write "problems" but it kept coming up as "probable". So I tried "issue" instead but it just comes up as the untranslated "SHU".
Also, I think if you press too many keys it won't recognise it. STKPHR!! STKPHR-RBGS SKPHR-RBGS STKPWHRO STKPHRO he to a STKPWHRAO KPHRAO STKPWRAO STPHAO STKPWHAO STKPWHAO STKPHAO STKPWHAO TKPHAO
Well, maybe not. That was me trying to write "zoo". I bet at least one of them was right. The letters all came up. Actually, maybe they didn't. It should be STPHKWRAO.
Let's just try "cat".
cat. There you go. I can't do...
"Yeah" is what I was trying to end with. Even tried to spell it out letter by letter but this dictionary uses a different system so I don't know what the combination is.
Anyway, it sort of works, I guess. I'll probably check it out some more later. If you could get it working, think of the possibilities. You could go to any online typing speed test and get the number 1 spot. Then just wait for the bitches to roll in. I think you can also hook your steno machine in and use this program so I'll have to check it out more.
In other news, I was looking to make some sauerkraut. Go to Tesco. No sauerkraut. Well, they had some weird little bottle of preserved red cabbage for like £3 but I needed 1.5 pounds of the stuff.
So I went to a Polish shop while I was out working. They were selling huge jars of the stuff for £1. Think about that. Where can you buy a huge jar of ANYTHING for £1? So I bought two.
When I go to the counter, the guy says, "Do you speak Polish?" I answered in the negative. So he says, "Do you know what you're buying?" I say, "Yeah, sauerkraut." He then says that they also sell saurkraut with carrots and mushrooms and I saw those but wasn't interested.
I mean...who would go to a Polish shop and buy a big jar of some weird looking product without knowing what it is they're buying? I found it amusing.
Now I just need the sausage. I could have bought some kielbasa there but I was buying this stuff during lunchtime and didn't want to stink up the courtroom.
So I get home. Tried three stores. Nothing even resembling a kielbasa. Tesco, Sainsburys, not even the kind of big M&S.
The Tesco at least had those dried chorizos so I got a couple of them. I don't expect this to go well but I'll try it out and I have another jar of this stuff anyway when I get a proper kielbasa.
Forgot the onion too. But...I don't know. How much flavour does an onion really add to a dish? Conventional wisdom is probably "a lot" but I don't really taste it.
And the recipe I found is crazy easy. "Put the meat, sauerkraut, onion, and garlic in a skillet and cook it." So I'm going to get to it and I'll report back with the results.
