I'm new too, as I've only veeeery recently discovered QC, and even more recently noticed that there's a forum.

I mostly must wander around with my eyes closed.

And unfortunately, until you've passed the initiation round, your eyes must remain closed. Especially while you type your posts.

Son of a.............. Who are you people amd where dod you go to school>
Took typing at White Plains High School in 1953. When I completed the course, I was a bike messenger for Western Union. I told the manager I'd passed the course and please sir, could I have an inside job? Worked for WU in a bunch of Westchester County offices and a summer in D.C. Most of the machines we used then were duplex, and operators couldn't see the text they typed. Their fingers told them if they'd made a mistake, and there was a way of alerting the operator on the other end to the mistake.

(eyes closed)

I took typing in 7th grade with Mr. Hoppe. I've been touch-typing since then - about 30+ years. If I don't just rush through typing, I can get through several paragraphs withoutrt errors.

I can only do this on the computer with a keyboard, of course.

Did a typing course several years ago on, of all things, an electric typewriter.  Lost the knack of Touch Typing over the years, but got my speed and skill back up at a couple of  courses I did.

I have a WHOLE bunch of stuff I typed up over 30 years ago. I thought I was on the cutting edge when I bought my Panasonic Word Processor back when I was in college. Unfortunately, the floppy drive on it no longer works, so all the stuff I typed up is no longer works - including, sadly, the letter I wrote to my future wife asking her for a date. :(

I took a typing course in high school...between internet access, the teacher not being able to see what each student had on their screen, and 9/11 (the teacher was completely paranoid of foreign invaders), I didn't accomplish anything in that class.

If you ever coded BASIC on an Atari, you'd know what RUNDY meant.

I wrote a program in BASIC for the Apple 2e in the 80s. It displayed a treble clef with a note on it. I entered the letter identifying the note. The program told me if I was correct. It was interesting, but I had enough on my plate then, including a dual career as copy editor and computer system operator. I never wrote another program and still haven't quite learned the treble clef. But now I'm a baritone instead of a tenor, and it doesn't matter.

Ha!  I wrote one program in Fortran as the final project for a programming class in 1981...  don't even remember what it did! 

And I'm a tenor who can't read treble clef after spending my life singing bass, playing bass trombone, bass recorder, bass krummhorn, serpent, and other bottom-end renaissance instruments.

See, that was my problem too; starting out with a trombone. On the treble clef, I can find B in the middle and middle C below, and still count from those and hope no one notices. If I'd internalize FACE and Every Good Boy Does Fine it would help a lot. But that didn't occur to me until just a few days ago.
