I wouldn't mind trying Dvorak, but I'd have to have some cheater stickers or something.

My fear with Dvorak is that I'll spend all this time learning it only to find that the people who notice a speed improvement are the ones around 50wpm, and the ones up closer to 90 won't see as much improvement.

Oh well, if I can learn it and save myself some carpal tunnel or something, then it's worth it.

(I did "test instructions")

I don't really understand the benefit here.

If someone already knows how to type using the home keys (index fingers on F and J) without looking at the keyboard (myself) why would I ever want to re-learn a different way?

...and WTF is QWERTY??

QWERTY is the name given to the standard keyboard. (look at the first 6 letters on the top left of the keyboard)

Oh, I thought it was a typing style or different hand placement. Thanks.

... typing with one hand. So I guess that makes my 2 handed speed 120 wpm.
