    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    When I look back at my old posts, I remember that I wasn't all that great at typing on a keyboard. I wasn't hand eye coordinated because I didn't ever think it was that big of a deal to learn how to type on a keyboard.

    I always look back at myself and want to slap my old self in the face, but I will look back at myself six months from now and say **** me. But at least I'm getting better... I hope...

    I still need to look at the keyboard when I type, but at least I am able to type two handed.

    No way I could ever type without looking at the keyboard.

    I can type with two hands, and rather quickly. But, it's the most unorthodox typing you'll ever see. And it's best to keep your distance because I throw some Robert Parrish specials throughout.

    If you've ever seen Thelonious Monk play piano, that's kinda what I look like typing.

    That's about the level that I'm at.

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    When I was in high school, if you were in the college prep track you had to take basic typing and the next semester a basic business course, learning to use a calculator with a paper tape, also by touch only. The typewriters did not have numbers or letters on the keys. You learned pretty darn quick to touch-type. You had to type at least 45 wpm to pass the course. When I was surveying I could type 120 wpm. Still can clip away when typing a document.
    Now on my phone or tablet the speed tanks.

    My kids when in elementary school, the entire 4th grade year was devoted to learning to touch-type. In college my kids were thankful for being tortured.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Your typing is better. I can always tell when you are typing on a computer vs your Kindle, likely the same way you can tell when I'm on my phone, those tend to be some rougher posts.

    Phone and tablet keyboards are the very worst.

    When my hands aren't cold, I can type on average 80WPM, without looking at the keyboard. Being a receptionist for the past 10 years helps!

    Yeah, my wife can do that, too. It's an amazing skill to me!

    I've tried to learn, but it just ain't happening.

    After years of piano- no watching the keys- it is fairly easy for me to type. Plus with the piano skills, I can type pretty fast. Plus the fact I was a secretary who typed all day long... then there was that little dissertation I types. I have some skills.

    Since I didn't sleep last night, I think I will go take a nap! Kiddos will take the computer again so I probably won't be back on today. But it looks like this will be the last week of my classes for this session! Its working out really good! I actually may get a break!

    Howdy gang!

    Been on a short health-related hiatus. The last week+ has been kinda' a blur. It all culminated in a hospital stay and an unexpected surgery. Finally have clearance from the good Doc to head back to the office tomorrow!
    Still in some pain and still not 100%, but I know that that office normalcy will help me mend even quicker...!

    Hope you're all well!!!
