Interests and priorities change, and as such, some blog members have not logged into the blog in a while. For that reason, members that have not logged on at all this calendar year will be removed from the blog and document access.
If you’re interested in continuing your Gregg Shorthand Blog access, I will ask those members that have not logged on at all in 2022 that you at least log on to the blog once before 31 July 2022 (reading documents through Google docs does not count). If you do not do this before the deadline, I will assume that you are no longer interested in the blog, and your blog and document access will be turned off.
If you have logged on at least once this year, you don’t need to do anything and your access will continue.
If you have lost your blog login credentials, please send me a note via About, Contact.
If you have any issues (access, posting, etc.), please let me know.
Thank you for your continuing support!
Thanks for the nudge, Carlos.
I continue to expand my Windows AutoHotkey based Anniversary Gregg tool and to wonder whether anyone else is interested. I'm pretty sure it's now taken its final form. The Gregg markings in the Dashboard are decent, and they're now pretty easy to fix when broken or just ugly. If anyone thought there were value in the tool, I could even make the form editor graphical. As for the dictionary, you gave me ~8000 entries and I've added almost 3000 more, so there's a little value add there. Every day I happen upon another 5 or 10 words I should add, and some days I actually do so. And I keep reminding myself I need to get into phrasing. 🙂
Anyway, I keep Gregging 10 hours a day and love it.
For the dictionary, have you considered adding the entries already existent in the Series 90 dictionary, but modifying them to Anniversary as needed?
There's a series 90 dictionary? In downloadable form?
It’s hardcopy (you can get it very cheap on eBay), but you can borrow it electronically from openlibrary.org:
They also have the DJS dictionary, but the Series 90 one has more words.
Ah. OK. I've got ~20,000 words in the 1930 Anni dictionary. What I lack is the time and energy to convert them from printed form to ascii. 🙂 I average about 3 new words per day in normal use. It's happy work, but it's work and time is at a premium.
I figure it takes 30 seconds to upwards of a minute a word to do the conversion. It's easy enough to write down the Gregg form in ascii, but the computer requires that you avoid conflicts. The, There, and Their all want the same ascii code, but only one can have it so I have to make sure I'm not creating a conflict before I can submit the new code. And when I find a conflict, I need to accommodate it. Doing that 10,000 more times is daunting.
Thanks for monitoring things and keeping this group functional.
