That's awesome. Reminds me of the blank key typewriters we has in typing class long ago. Couldn't cheat and peek!
And I thought that I was the only one here that took typing in school! I don't think that they even teach touch typing anymore.

It appears that index fingers have been elevated to the same plane as opposable thumbs.

What are the chances that auto correct could be incorporated into the reply box programing...that would be good for a few more laughs!:wink:

Sometimes AutoCorrect can't determine what the heck I was attempting to type! :surprise::grin:

When I was in the 9th grade, I took typing...circa 1963! :grin:

We had about 30 typewriters in the classroom. All electric except for one. It was an all black manual Olivetti and the keys weren't labelled:surprise: :no:

Every day we rotated typewriters. Once a month, I would have a bad grade for the day!:frown::frown::frown:

It was smooth as silk to type on, but that didn't help me.

We traded between Selectric II's and Royals. Mr. Kadosaki was very strict on "flying capitals", so our pinkies got a workout on those shift keys. Those carriages weighed a ton!


It wasn't my intent to take typing, but I had to transfer out of another class my Freshman year, and it was all that was open. It truly has served me well over the years.

Truth be told, the best part of that class was being the only male in a class full of upperclass qirls....

I think schools now teach keyboarding, but kids start pretty early on their own. I remember typing on a big old Royal. Never got very fast until I started working as a journalist. I replaced all my keyboards with smaller models that don't have a number pad because I never use the pad anyhow. One thing I can't understand is how anyone can get any work done without a mouse, using a touch pad?
