I’m typing this entry right now with the keyboard set to dvorak. I’ve been doing exercises and thought it’s time for the real thing.
It’s been a bit frustrating as I’m used to typing at a really fast speed on QWERTY and I’m feeling helpless with the slower speed. Let’s hope I get up to speed sooner as I have some pending projects that need to be done.
I’m on my fourth day and have managed to get to an acceptable 20-30 WPM speed at least on the home keys. Not too bad if you think of how long it took me to get used to touch typing with QWERTY before.
43things is awesome! I posted a question on asking for help on what software people used to practice Dvorak and the response was just great. I got pointers to software and websites that I don’t think I’d discover if I researched them on my own.
I plan to give around a month for this goal (maybe two months if get too busy or lose focus).
