From the “useless trivia about me” department: I always typed with just three fingers. Middle and index fingers of my right hand and index finger of my left – more than sufficient for yours truly. Thumbs for spacebar and some limited use for the other middle finger, otherwise.
I am reasonably fast at that, too. The downside is, obviously, not looking at the screen while typing, so if, for instance, I happened to have a russificator on at an inopportune moment, I might type a whole line of gibberish before noticing that I needed to switch. Interestingly, I’ve never been making too many typos, so well I mastered the three-finger technique.
But, in a fit of restlessness, I decided to challenge myself and to finally learn how to type blind. I am happy to announce that this little post has been typed up entirely blind. Which only took me roughly five times as long as it normally would.
Don’t expect much in the coming days, in other words.
