I'm a fast typist. Ninety words per minute. Take it.
That last line, however, took three minutes to type. It's excruciating. Why?
I'm switching to the Dvorak keyboard layout. For those who don't know, typewriters started out with their keys arranged in an "ABCD" configuration this caused the hammers to bind, so the standard "QWERTY" keyboard was invented.
This layout turns out to be very inefficient for us humans, so a guy named Dvorak came up with a better one. His arrangement requires 90% less finger movement which is better for speed as well as accuracy and not getting carpal tunnel syndrome.
There is a good program I am using called Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor that teaches you how to do it. I will not use the old layout for anything anymore. Burning bridges, baby!
This took 32 minutes to type. Posts may be on the short side for a while.
