I read about and even seen videos of pseudo touch typing... but not really while using WASD, it's weird to say the least. (this is coming from a touch typer who uses alternate shifts for the opposite hand)

I'd try alternating shifts for the opposing hand.

my v2 mod will have the foot pedal as shift, so you might actually see more capitalization.

bloke226 if that army group invades or something give me a PM. I can mail you one for $160 or less. either tenkeyless or full size, full size can be blue, black or tea colour (brown) and in English or English with Chinese as you wish

But they have none of the bonuses and stuff. Retail store.

I achieve on average 80-110 wpm by typing the way I do. And very accurate by the way. That's why it discourages me to type using home-row. (I know all the keys and such on home-row, I just do it incredibly slow.)

My thought process basically goes like this: Why learn how to type using home-row all over again when I can type 100wpm accurately the way I do now?

Also I use my left pinky for the left-shift, and use only the left shift, and my right pinky for backspace and enter. By doing this it's not a pain in the ass to keep switching and bending the right pinky down unnaturally. (At least it feels weird for me.)

Yeah, I was kidding about the alternating shift key thing. Only Mavis Beacon fanbois do that.

my typing instructor did look like Mavis Beacon. Ms Crenshaw was her name, i remember the first testvshe made us take, we all had to get out of the room and then tell her the home row in order to get back in.
