Typing / Keyboards

When I was in the 9th grade, I had the opportunity to attend a typing class.

Back in the early 1980's the typewriters we used had keys which you really had to slam down to get ink on the paper.

So I learned to type at an early age.

And my father had some programs for the IBM PC to practice typing which I constantly tried to improve my wpm.

Along came the computers and I was lucky to already know how to type.

So when I program, I can really fly.

Now the keyboards vary depending on where you go.

I just got a new PC at home so I'm still getting used to the Home and End keys.

Then my work PC has changed 3 times this year each time with a new keyboard.

This tends to slow me down as I have to think about what I'm doing.

And my laptop at home, keyboard is way different.

Have to keep re-adjusting with each different keyboard.
