Creating answers and questions is very tedious on my computer: Each keystroke takes between 0.8 and 1.5 seconds to appear in the input mask. Even if I use an external editor the workflow is such horribly slow, that I cannot feel it "flowing" at all.
Of course I can type a message blindly, but this increases the number of typos even further. Then editing the message is a challenge: To delete 4 characters and insert 4 new ones, I have to wait 8 seconds plus 2 additional seconds to see, if really every keystroke was processed.
Using the mouse to set the cursor yields to further problems: keyboard events and mouse events are collected in different queues.
[Key1], [move cursor by mouse click], [Key2]
[Key1], [Key2], [move cursor by mouse click]
Of course using automatic key repetition is absolutely impossible under these circumstances such that I get the ancient type-writer feeling.
I admit that I'm using an older computer for the internet access and have a 36Mbps connection only. But the only limitations I get are:
- no files access for >500MB
- no HD-movies
- no Areo-look (transparent windows)
- no bearable editing in MATLAB Answers
Am I the only one with such problems?
PS. Creating this message took 32 minutes.
