    *lol* cool, well atleast it's a bit extra workout for the brain if you fail to replce it with a qwerty keyboard.

    I tried dvorak once long ago, didn't like it much but I don't write much english so might be why. dvorak seems to be fit for english language.

    It should be interesting to see how you adapt to it. I'm a little skeptic
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I'm definitely improving, if I stop thinking so much about it I can almost type steadily. At like 10 words a minute mind you but steady nonetheless

    How fast does one need to type?

    Generally when I'm programming I rarely need to type as fast as I am when posting on a message board or chatroom. Or are you one of those sadistic individuals that switch to dvorak for fun.

    I should make a keyboard where it randomly switches the position of 2 keys every day
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    I guess you can call me sadistic, this is just something of a brain workout.
