One week break starting Tuesday... wish me luck on learning DVORAK in that timeframe. On QWERTY I get around 70 WPM, which is kinda slow...

BTW, FPS on DVORAK = failz?

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

I find it easier to type on than rubber keyboards... and it is extremely durable.
I've got a Model M from '84...its older than me...I use it for my desktops, but for laptops I have to deal with different mechanisms. The one on the white MacBook isn't too bad, though...

Well I did the test and got 72WPM which I think is okay for using a mac laptop style button keyboard. I'm faster with regular style keyboards.

Notice no one is posting accuracy percentages (myself included--it was ugly).

mine was 89%, i distinctly remember. However it's mostly my spelling. I would look at a word on there are try to spell it, rather than looking at the individual characters.

I had 76%. >.< Though in my defense, the program I was using to measure only let me backspace within the same word, so that often made me mess up a string of words after it. I think I need to up my typing skillz...

This thread needs some pics of keyboards no?
Hope the OP does not mind.
I loved the article.







Yey they look like space invaders!



Last 3 have gone as I cant use rubber dome any more.
