part of me wants to break down barriers, set people free and make the world a better place
a bigger part of me wants to sit on the sofa, drink tea and play through old Nintendo games

Rest by me.

19/01/08 : Tim impresses himself with his typing skills

I think that 65 words per minute (plus two errors) is pretty good for a non office person.

65 words

free Touch typing

There's something I want to know though. Sarah often goes nun-nights before me, leaving me sat at the computer in the dark. Now, touch typing is about not being distracted by having to look down at the keys right, so, why is it that when it's dark I type at half the speed, make twice as many mistakes and keep having to look down at the keyboard (which I can't actually see anyway)?

Because light affects neurotransmitters in the brain and when it get dark our brains are sent messages to secrete a hormone to induce sleep. This slows down our reflexes.
