    People used to stare at me in Computing or anywhere else where I'm on a computer in public for that matter.

    I don't touch type correctly, my fingers are all over the place. But I can type without looking at the keyboard

    Yeah I don't either - I just picked it up naturally without any lessons :p: it's better that way - if you're allowed freedom you'll probably end up typing faster.

    Having a computer for about 9 years really helps with that.

    do you have any video evidence to back up this ludicrously impressive claim?

    Touch typing is typing using all your fingers without moving your hands right? I can type without looking at the keyboard but its only using my index and sometimes middle fingers, though I can get pretty quick

    Yeh 120WPM pushing it a bit, I so want proof - there's got to be some program where you can race lol. If not I'll invent one. Touch-typing isn't too hard, I learnt with the Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing (on a demo version without even buying it). It sure does speed up typing essays, and means you can finish early and go and do something better with your time!

    I think the limit with touch typing is about 180wpm..

    speeds of 150wpm have been obtained (record breakers)

    I can type without looking at the keyboard as long as I know where to start, but I don't think I use the proper hand position. I do use both hands though.

    Home keys is a load of gobpoo. I find that having had no qualification whatsoever in typing I type a lot better than most people with that quali; I type not looking at the screen, to probably 70wpm plus with barely any mistakes, most of which are my hands going faster than my brain and two letters being swapped accidentally. Anyone who's tried keeping up with me in legbiter always comes off second best :king1:

    I can do what I think touch typing is but if you have to type with all your fingers to do it then I can't do it but if it is just typing without looking then I can do it but I have to feel the edge of the keyboard when I start so I know where I am.
