Death by Dvorak

/. of the day: The Disposable Computer - the comments are in rare form.

My typing is only getting worse, despite the best advice no money can buy. To reassure myself that it’s all worthwhile, I’ve been reading random Dvorak pages. I even found one with up-to-date switching info.

You know what they say: those who can’t write, edit. So despite the late start, I’ve decided to do NaNoEdMo. I do like my NaNoNovel and the theme (a society fracturing over irreconcilable differences) seems even more timely than it did in November. Paper and pencil sounds good right now.

Just as an aside, never try to use Earthlink’s chat support option. The people at the other end (India?) are useless, and it spontaneously disconnects in Safari (FireFox is fine).

    Stick with Dvorak. I was a quite fast touch typist with qwerty but I find typing so much more enjoyable with Dvorak. And I am faster and make fewer mistakes. But it took me about four months to get back up to speed.

    I’m still at it. I’m not really back up to speed, but I’m no longer painfully slow.
