  I think many of the nuts, never learned to keyboard!! Its a shame there is a lot of pent up talent out there. It takes them too long to type anything. fortunately in High School I looked around and the typing class was all girls. So I took typing.  Grin Roll Eyes I don't think they would have let me take home economics!

Working on computers forced me to learn to type...

Sort of high speed Hunt & Peck with a lot of looking at the keyboard...

I knew a programmer that could code at 10,000 keystrokes an hour.
He could write a basic/fortran program code faster than you could explain
what you wanted the program to do... I was always stunned .....

His wife could pound out over 12,000 an hour @ 98% accuracy...


I use 3 to 4 fingers spanning both hands.. I may get 30 words a minute
with 50 mistakes per second.....

Nick,
Being an investigator for 21 years makes one think outside the box sometimes.

You need the phone to ring off the hook this time of year - that is when you make enough money to go through the long winter slow times.  My son-in-law has a H/A business - know what you are going through.  Only problem here is it has rained almost every day for the last month.  Really hurts new construction and slows down everthing else.

Geeeezzz Guys....

After reading the previous posts.....I'm beginning to wonder what I have gotten myself into..... Grin Grin Grin

Someone has to do it, right?

When I got drafted in 69 the Army took note of my typing skills and I worked for the Captain of our company at Ft. Ord CA for 18 months. That's on a two year draft. I also took typing in High School, not many guys did that back then. Not sure if I would do it again. Working with computers now it has helped a lot. Let's me program faster. So I guess it was worth it.

Nick, what's SPELL CHECK.....Huh

Clicking on that button, instead of "Post" will highlight what it thinks are mis-spellings.

And if you use Firefox, instead of I/E, it will underline the mispelled words as you type. Much faster and easier than the I/E spell check. In fact, it underlined mispelled as I am typing this. the correct spelling is actually misspelled it says.

Besides Spell check, there are lots of other very useful extensions for firefox too. At the top of the window, go to >tools >Extensions and in the bottom left corner of the little window click on "Get More Extensions"
A good one that I use is "Ad Block Plus" which blocks a lot of unwanted junk in loading a page and is congiurable for the rest.

Dallas, Help. I do not get an Extensions box when I open tools. Any idea why that would be?

Probably because you are using Firefox 2.0 while I'm happy with Firefox 1.5.0.12

Even though FF2.0 is a whole new upgrade, It has lost some features that I like, like the extensions feature.

You may try going to the help section and type in "Extensions", and see if it gives you a link to Mozilla where you can add more features.

In other words,.... damifino!
