    Does anyone here use the Dvorak layout? I have been learning it for the last 3 days... this is the first message I am typing with it. You can learn a bit about it at www.dvzine.org, they have a little comic that explains the origin of the qwerty and why the Dvorak is supposed to be better. This message has taken me about ten minutes to type [​IMG]

    That's all I need... Something to make me type even slower...

    In Christ,

    According to the studies, those who learn to type with the Dvorak method type much faster than the rest of us. [​IMG]

    I'll just use my three finger on each hand method.

    Leastways I have built up a little speed with it.

    lol, I am getting better at it. I started playing Typer Shark at www.popcap.com and it seems to be helping. I never learned to touch-type, so it is all new to me. I have always found myself at a disadvantage when coding, because although I could type rather quickly, I would miss typos because I was looking at my keyboard.
