    Me & Bill are. I can touch-type, and at about the same speed, but since I got my first computer back in '79, I've always typed with hunt-and-peck. I took typing class in high school, and could H&P around 115wpm. My teacher didn't bother making me type the regular way

    I use 3 fingers of each hand, and both thumbs for the space bar. I don't look at the keyboard, and my fingers pretty much wander wherever they're needed (I don't use a home position). It's probably the fact that I've been typing pretty much all day, every day for 23 years that helps.

    I pretty much type with only three fingers, two on my right one one my left, but occasionaly will use a fourth on my left hand and my thumb for the space bar. Anyway I only got 59 words a minute at 95% accurate

    I'm pleased, a bit faster than the last time I'd taken a typing test....

    Test duration: 0.33 minute
    Uncorrected words per minute score: 79 words per minute
    Uncorrected characters per minute score: 399 characters per minute
    Percentage accuracy: 100%
    Average corrected words per minute score: 79 words per minute

    I've gained 7wpm in the past few months, which leaves me about 60wpm faster than anyone else at work...no wonder whenever they need to send out memos or get things typed up they end up dictating to me.

    Holy crap, Mokka! You are a typing fiend! I bet your keys are slightly melted.

    Oh yeah, you definitely win. And so did the Raiders, no doubt because of your avatar (like mine).

    I have no idea if this is good or not. That is how much I know about typing.
