Touch Type Shame

Software engineers type a lot. I kind of know how to type without looking at my hands, but I don’t exercise that enough. So what I do is some crazy combo of hunt and peck and real touch typing. The result is that I have a good feel for where the keys are, but since my hand doesn’t have a constant home, I don’t know exactly where the keys are in relation to my hands.

Everyone at my office can touch type but me. So I’ve decided to learn. Now I am playing a game on the BBC’s website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/typing/. It kind of reminds me of Pa’ Rappa the Rappa in a way.

This post was typed very slowly, but without looking at my hands.
