Plover Beginner's Guide

This is a bit overdue, but we now have an excellent Beginner's Guide to Getting Started With Plover over on the new wiki, which has supplanted the old outdated wiki. It's got step-by-step instructions on setting Plover up and trying it out for the first time, as well as hardware advice and links to learning and practice resources. Many thanks to Ted and Ellis for the writing and editing work!

Come To The Discord Group! Meet Stenobot!

So I've pretty much dissolved the Aviary. I just couldn't keep the spammers out, and I froze the board to new posts, and it had very low traffic anyway. All the real Plover community action these days is on the Discord group, which is basically like updated IRC, or a more open Slack. It's great, and we've got a fantastic group of people, with wide-ranging conversations on steno and virtually everything else under the sun. Also, as of this week, we have a new member:

Ted whipped us up a bot called StenoBot, who displays all steno code written between backticks on the Learners channel (and on other channels if you start the line with !). It's very cool.

Come check it out at the Discord Group!
