New guy learning to type!

Wow!

Getting used to typing on the TS1000 is quite a learning experience.

On one hand I love it and on the other I want to scream! Ha, ha! ;)


I guess eventually it will become "second nature"...


Till then....

You might find yourself developing a style of input which is more 'stroking' than pressing. This was typical back in the day before add-on keyboards were commonplace.

Ha, ha!

Yes I can see how a bit of "sliding" across the keyboard would be in order!

Ha, ha! Thanks! I'm excited to continue my learning and see if I can learn to "press" this machine to or near its limits.

Although, it may take the rest of my life! ;)
