Yeah, but you've probably never heard of it.

Actually, I feel the need to make my computer hard to use for others because fark you go use your own computer. Therefore I get a keyboard that makes others feel inferior, even if they get angry and stick their lip out and call me a douche. So your causality is wrong but your pouting is cute.


Meanwhile I remote desktop into your machine, set it to left handed Dvorak then laugh and laugh.

DjangoStonereaver: thomps: ekdikeo4: thomps: amo: Touch typists still exist, but we're rare enough that most people boggle at my keyboard.


wtf are you talking about? touch typing is more prevalent now than ever, unless your definition only includes people who feel the need to alert the world to their amazing ability to type without looking at a keyboard by painting keys.


hmm. i think that although a lot of people are capable of touch typing, that they currently rely quite a bit on the markings on the keyboard, and would have to take some time to adjust to it.

i would venture to guess that most people under the age of 30 that grew up with computers could type with ease without markings (aside from the bumps on the f and j keys, i suppose). typing has become a primary means of communication as opposed to something you learn in a middle school class and then forget.


I think you're your confusing comfort with using the interface with skill in using it.  Even for people who
grew up with computer, most people need to actually think about what they're entering, and that takes
thought that slows down the mechanical process of entry.  For me, a touch typist is someone who is
practiced enough that they can think about other things and form whole words, rather than one letter
at a time.
 
The main reason I can type as fast as I do is that I took a full year of professional typing classes in
high school (if you have ever seen my handwriting you'll know why), but what really pushed me into the
stratosphere is the 3 years I was a data entry clerk.  Though we weren't paid by the keystroke, we were
judged on how much work we got done in a shift, and it got to the point where everyone in my office
was able to have very serious conversations while we were all clacking away.  I think a couple of times
my key speed came close to 100WPM toward the end of my time there.


So you are saying you spent money learning to touch type when you could have just played muds? Seriously, you want to learn to type fast & accurately play a mud for a few years.

I have the labeled quiet version of that keyboard. In fact, I'm typing on it now.

It's great. I suggest you try it and shut your whore mouth.

A well made keyboard with good tactile response is essential to a really good user experience. I like the fact that this Das Keyboard weighs about three pounds; I'll bet it has a really solid feel to it. Since you can get the same model with cap labels (laser-etched!) the whole blank keyboard = hipster/douche is negated.
Cheap, light-weight keyboards, while functional, are not pleasant to use. I like the looks of Das Keyboard.

Why this hasn't been posted yet, I don't know, but it's obligatory.

/Is there anything those douche bags haven't contaminated?


Not sure if it can qualify as a hipster approved device unless it's made of 100% fair trade, green certified recycled condoms or something similar.

WTF is that?!


A keyboard, obviously, but with labels.

Some people like to type by feel. I'm the other way, I type by looking at the keyboard and not at the screen. I tend to type much faster. Admittedly you have to go back and correct the mistakes you make, but I edit everything I type i case I've made a mandrake.

incendi: DjangoStonereaver: and even I need to look at the key labels fairly often.


If I've got the F/J bumps, I can do 99% of my typing without any issue, but if I need any special characters beyond day-to-day punctuation I'd be fairly screwed.


My coworker has a Das Keyboard. I see him using the On Screen Keyboard for special symbols fairly often.
