    I have studied KM under a few instructors since I have lived in a few different states. KM is my consistent training because I love it and nothing imo is as lean and mean. I also have a background in BJJ with nobody special and Filipino Kali which I actually learned from Dan Inosanto.

    I study PTK, but I'm a newbie. Any chance you're near Portland Oregon?
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Last time I tested was in high school and I scored 95 to 100 WPM. The typing teacher tried like crazy to get me to use the preferred style and home-row based typing but after I beat her one on one....she let me stick with my method. I've slowed down some since then due to the recent heavy reliance on the mouse. I learned to type playing text adventure games and let me tell you when an orc is chasing after you with a big axe you learn to type pretty fast.

    I pretty much mastered typing playing MUD for that very reason. Take too long to type out a command or message, and you're dead when you press 'enter.'

    Heh, as a programmer, you'd think you'd use a MUD client that allows you to make aliases and trigger macros.

    That was years before I started my journey of programming, in those wonderful days of youth where I still had time to waste.

    I might say the very same thing, however, it was actually MUD clients and IRC clients that got me interested in programming to begin with due to their built in programming capabilities. My first "programs" were simple IRC bots that responded to chat room based RPGs. In fact, I remember the first time I took pride in programming was when I got banned from a chat room RPG because I had made a "bot" that could either level or farm for me all night while I wasn't playing. Anyway, that's all off topic and I shouldn't say any more about it.

    EDIT: I will say one more thing... Oddly enough, as advanced as that had felt to program at the time, this all still happened before I initially signed up to this forum so that I could ask what while(1){ } was supposed to mean.

    I guess wanting your "bot" to work forever rather than just for one night was the next step, heheh.
