Dusty: what keyboard do you have? a normal qwerty?

I have a dvortyboard.... it has a button on it that allows you to switch layouts on the fly. I think they're out of business though. Kenisis makes a weirdass hardware-switched one too, but its something like $300.

The ultimate keyboard for Dusty :-)

Type up to 100% faster in a few weeks

Since there is no key to look at when typing, your brain will quickly adapt and memorize the key positions and you will find yourself typing a lot faster with more accuracy in no time. It is amazing how slow typers almost double their speed and quick typers become blazing fast!

Re: keyboard discussion

Lol, I've seen that. I was intrigued by it -- if anybody wants to buy me a gift, it would be fun and interesting.

some random person seeing my new keyboard wrote:

hey, there's no letters on these keys.... haha, lets see how well I can do on this. What the HELL, the letters are all in the wrong place.... What are you, some kind of supergeek? HOW DO YOU TYPE ON THIS THING? I don't like it here anymore... :'(

More seriously, here's an interesting concept:

Re: keyboard discussion

I recommend Logitech Ultra-X flat keybord. I have one and I'm very satisfied. It helps me a lot to touch type.

Re: keyboard discussion

Personally, I use an old Keytronic, which just happens to be nearly identical to 'Das Keyboard', but with letters and such on the keys.  There all sorts of odd little things about it that I absolutely love, too.

For one, it's a German layout, which took a bit of getting used to, but I'm enjoying being able to type more random symbols and such.  Also, the keys have some sort of strength-balancing thing that gives a certain amount of resistance based on what finger should be pressing a key.  As odd as that may seem, it actually feels very nice to type on, and I even managed to get through an entire paper without my fingers getting all wierd-like, as they tend to when I type a lot on a normal keyboard.


If you develop an ear for sounds that are musical it is like developing an ego. You begin to refuse sounds that are not musical and that way cut yourself off from a good deal of experience.
