But, if you'd like to meet people, chat about nothing in particular, you know...have polite conversation that doesn't seem to fit easily into any of the other rooms, this is the place!

The Lobby is not for serious debates, there are other areas for those types of conversations. It is more for relaxed chatting or discussing things that don't fit elsewhere. Politics, religion and philosophy have their own place on the site

  • a s d f j k l sem

    Yeah, because I spoke goodly Engrish in High School, I was forced to go to typing - way back when nobody dreamed that every home would have 3 computers and 14 other connected devices. Only GIRLS typed.

    Hey... wait... GIRLS!!!!!

    So I enjoyed being the only guy in a classroom of GIRLS, but... Mrs Fronkenschteen - she was BRUTAL on the "don't look at the keyboard" thing. And she drilled into your head "a s d f j k l sem" I was saying that in my SLEEP!

    In Sunday School, the teacher would ask a Bible question, and I had to fight off the urge to answer "a s d f j k l sem".

    But --- I can TYPE!



    Now I just needs to lurn how to speel.

      Did the same thing. Took typing back in the 9th grade and was the only guy in the class Seems like over half of the cheerleading class was there as well smiley dirtyflirt.gif

      The teacher said I was the only person who ever earned a B (barely) who only typed with two fingers.

      And yes, we couldn't look down although that wouldn't help since there were no letters on the keys.

      I'm always still in trouble again

        We had letters on the keys, but after the first week, you had to slip your hands in under a hood over the keys, so you couldn't even see your hands.

          And, as noted elsewhere, your "font" choice was - pica or elite.

              qwerty is a bit quirky

                yeah, I was fascinated with typing. I too took typing in 8th grade. I think there were 2 or 3 guys in the class, the rest were girls. We never had the hood thing, but the teacher would walk around observing whether you were looking at the keys or not...she might "tap" you on the head with her ruler if you were looking at the keys...

                  Ah, the home keys. On the dumb touch screen key boards on android tables one has to look! They need an added real keyboard.

                    I did the same thing.

                    I also took a computer class in high school (back in 1976!) using a teletype and tape punch machine. I even programmed a snoopy drawing!

                      In mid-elementary, I learned how to program low-resolution art using Apple II BASIC. The programming was easy to figure out; what to draw with it, not so much.

                            might have been. But I think it was Snoopy sitting on his dog house. It was 40 years ago.
