Reddit

1. Understand the Basics

 

1.1. Understanding Multi-Reddits

Multireddits combine any number of subreddits into one feed. Most multireddits combine subreddits with similar topics. For example, instead of following ten gaming-related subreddits, you can combine them all into one multireddit and see all their new posts at once. You can keep your multireddits private for your own use, or share them with others.

Touch-Typing

Introduction

Touch-typing or 10-finger typing is typing on a keyboard without the need to look at it, and doing it by sense alone.

 


Factoids To Sound Smart

  • The standard layout on a keyboard is known as the QWERTY keyboard. Many variations of the QWERTY keyboard exist, the most famous being Dvorak – which is considered by some to be more ergonomical as it contains the more commonly used letters in the English language in the home row.
  • The arrangement of all the letters on the QWERTY keyboard is an outcome of trying to minimize the getting stuck of the keys on a mechanical typewriter.

Step 1: Learn which finger goes where


Step 2: Practice, Practice, Practice

  • https://www.typingclub.com/typing-qwerty-en.html
  • www.typing.lk
  • It becomes very easy to fall back into the practice of typing whilst looking at the keyboard as initially without looking will feel very awkward, clunky and you’ll have to force yourself to remember where the keys are, but push through it and within a couple of weeks, you’ll be golden.

Google Search

 


From Google’s official page,

Symbol How to use it
+ Search for Google+ pages or blood types
Examples: +Chrome or  AB+
@ Find social tags
Example: @agoogler
$ Find prices
Example: nikon $400
# Find popular hashtags for trending topics
Example: #throwbackthursday
- When you use a dash before a word or site, it excludes sites with that info from your results. This is useful for words with multiple meanings, like Jaguar the car brand and jaguar the animal.
Examples: jaguar speed -car or pandas -site:wikipedia.org
" When you put a word or phrase in quotes, the results will only include pages with the same words in the same order as the ones inside the quotes. Only use this if you’re looking for an exact word or phrase, otherwise you’ll exclude many helpful results by mistake.
Example: "imagine all the people"
* Add an asterisk as a placeholder for any unknown or wildcard terms. .
Example: "a * saved is a * earned"
.. Separate numbers by two periods without spaces to see results that contain numbers in a range.
Example: camera $50..$100
Operator How to use it
site: Get results from certain sites or domains.
Examples: olympics site:nbc.com and olympics site:.gov
related: Find sites that are similar to a web address you already know.
Example: related:time.com
OR Find pages that might use one of several words.
Example: marathon OR race
info: Get information about a web address, including the cached version of the page, similar pages, and pages that link to the site.
Example: info:google.com
cache: See what a page looks like the last time Google visited the site.
Example: cache:washington.edu

Note: When you search using operators or punctuation marks, don’t add any spaces between the operator and your search terms. A search for site:nytimes.com will work, but site: nytimes.com won’t.
