    It's like learning "vi".

    You gotta learn it when you're young!

    And, it stays with you, for the rest of your life.

    PS: I still use Vi freeware on the Windows pc!

    For that, there's Siri!

    That's the voice assistant in iOS, right?

    Does she have a middle finger?

    Same here. Sadly, I'm a very slow typist.

    Huh? You're usually on the money, but what I was trying to say
    was that my hands were physically touching the touchpad while I
    typed.

    > Sensititivity of a pointing device is irrelevant of your typing speed.


    Well, the point was that my hands go where my hands go. And,
    where my hands went, was touching the keypad. That was causing
    problems. Turning off the keypad solved those problems.

    > Laptop keyboards are NOT designed for fast typists


    OK. I agree, to a point. They are still QWERTY, which actually was
    design to slightly slow down certain combinations; but, still, that
    is exactly the layout that a typist would use (albeit less tactile).

    > They are designed for hunt-and-peck typists.


    I doubt that's actually true; I think they are designed to be rather
    compact flat keyboards; which can often cramp a typist's style,
    depending on how compact they are.

    I find I can type about 80 wpm on my laptop, and even then, you'll
    rarely find a typo or spelling (or grammar or punctuation) error
    in my prosaic posts!

    > The issue is where the touchpad is placed along with the proximity
    > of your palms while you type.


    Indeed!

    > Laptop keyboards are designed for punching keys versus tapping them.


    Hmmm... Looking at my hands, as I type on my laptop, my palms are both
    firmly resting on the laptop. The 8 digits are all resting on the proper
    keys (with the index finger on the aforementioned marked F & J keys).

    The thumbs are slightly above the keys, with the right thumb just barely
    hovering over the space bar with the left thumb at a higher angle, as it
    appears to be the least-used finger.

    No. I hate that stinkin' thing. I really do. I use a mouse, so,
    there's no need for a touchpad anyway. And, it gets in the way of
    typing. So, turning it off is just fine with me. YMMV

    You might like Vim (vi Improved) if you try it.

    She has amusing answers to "Where can I bury a dead body?"

    I became quite proficient with vi when it was the only editor on the Unix
    (BSD and Unixware) that I used as a software developer in the 1990s. I
    haven't used it much since because a WYSIWYG editor such as PFE
    (Programmer's Free Editor) is generally quickly as long as you have a mouse
    to select words, phrases and sentences. For altering the order of complete
    lines, rather than for editing paragraphs of text, dd v shift-P (I think!)
    can be quicker.

    I wish I could find a decent Windows version of grep for pulling out all the
    lines (maybe with line numbers) from multiple files. It's often quicker to
    use grep to locate any emails that contain a certain phrase than it is to
    use Windows Live Mail's Find facilities when you've got many thousands of
    emails to search through. Unfortunately the version I've got can't handle
    long file names so it tells me that the match is in 2CD672AE~1.eml and I
    then have to do a dir /n /x to match that short name to the long name so I
    know which file to open.


    I use several fingers on each hand, but not the correct ones by touch-typing
    rules. My wife types using only the middle finger of each hand, which looks
    weird. She uses only her middle finger for pressing the on-screen icons on
    her Android tablet as well.

    I wish I could type more quickly but having learned by trial and error it
    would initially be frustrating to have to type more slowly while I was
    learning to touch type, even if it would benefit me in the long-term.

    I use the packages from gnuwin32. For some of your Linux/Unix favorites,
    you have to know which package they're in (i.e. FindUtils has a bunch).
    And for some, you get an easy ride (package labeled "grep").

    http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages.html

    The programs consist of a binary and supporting DLLs.
    The binary must be next to the DLLs, or the %path% variable
    set up to make it all happen. In the case of the "file" command,
    the one that identifies file type by content, the library
    that program uses must be arranged at a specific relative location
    with respect to the executable. (It's not good enough to put "magic"
    file next to "file.exe".)

    So setting those up is the fun part. They do provide complete
    setup utilities, but after a while, I use the "soup recipe"
    to "pour them in the bowl I want". In other words, you don't
    need an installer, if you know what you're doing.

    If I'm working on a project, I just copy the exe and dll files,
    into the directory I'm working in. And run Command Prompt
    from there.

    The GNU utils aren't perfect. I think the grep one, likes to
    store stuff in RAM. If you want to grep a file which is 10GB
    in size on a machine with 2GB of RAM, the program will complain
    it is "out of memory". This is a far from optimal design optimization,
    where the software developer didn't use the "out of memory" error
    to switch back to traditional "piped" operation.

    These days, one of the biggest questions to ask (in a Windows environment),
    is whether the thing you're searching for, is in 16 bit Unicode, or
    regular 8 bit characters. And whether the tool you're using, knows
    the difference, or searches for both. Just in case you're wondering
    why the old methods that used to work for searching content,
    no longer seem to work right. For one little project I was
    working on, I actually had to write a one-page C program,
    to do the search for me. And load it with variants on 8 and
    16 bit versions of text. And that worked.

    For the first time I'm sorry I don't have an iPhone :-)

    But I *am* glad that I have access to Google...Lots of hits.

    If only there were a way to simply get rid of the damn things and get
    a point-stick in the middle of the keyboard back......
