It IS quite an interesting idea, as I too wrtie (meaning write) a rough idea of what I mean to say and edit it later (usually). I do no harm in joining your conversation. I was actually just gonna say the thought that came to my head, concerning phlip's question, being that I didn't think I would think fast enough to make such chnges in mid sentence, but seeing as I have done so twice now, I appreciate the (appreciate... really? I'm not sure where I was going with this)...Anyways, it certainly is a fun way to keep our sentences coheret.

I had pressed enter twice, but then erased them as I had nothing else to say , yet I came back and pressed the entre key ti-twice again just to tell you ao-about it.

We're getting very meta about this, aren't we? I mean, we're talking about how to type with no backspaces in the proper manner when we're typing about no backspaces. And now I went apnd pointed that wout, and we have another layer of meta on our hads. Wow,. I type much better when I'm not looking at the screen/what I'm typing. I was staring idly at my word-of-the-day calendar for those first two sentences, and now I'm doing it consciously to ensure I don't fuck up because I've realized it now. And there's another layer of meta.

Wow, these posts aren't too coherent when I can't go back and revise. Neat.

I really REALLY like this idea of just incorporaiting the rules into an actual conversation (or whatever this can ba-scratch- be called). I wonder how interesting the thread "If you look you must post" can become. That is , if we apply this same principle.

So far (@thecamoninja), I have comletely failed to migrate away from the forgiving forum games, as they feel like a comfortable forum to post at. When I joined, I thought I would be able to join the science/math/comics threads, but for some reason, I find myself with nothing to ay most of the times.

There have been a few times in this thread where I've accidentally hit backspace before I realised I was doing it and have had to re-type the typo I just erased. That's not cheating, right? I even had to do it once in this post :?

The different positions of " and @ on UK vs US keyboard layouts really annoys me sometimes. It's the main think that gets me when I'm typing on a different computer...

[quote=Adacore] The different positions of " and @...different computer [quo..... I will not try that again. I will simply sww[backspace][\backspace]eep the trouble under the rug[\quote]
I share your pain, but a solution, if I may offer my advice, is to buy a keyboard protector wih[backspace][\bacs[backspace][\backspace]kspace]th the keys painted on top, that way, you can always use it on another computer. (My computer has a spanish keyboard, but I bought a protector with the engls-w-engi-english keyboard, adding happined to my life)

On a second note, I am currently learning python, and may I say TAB please!!! I am used to programming in c and always use tab to indent the code... whover designe D python is simply evil.... and why no braquets (the squigly lines(I prmise(WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY TYPING TODAY) to think before I wrt-write now, scratch that "lines") ones). I'm sure Ill get used to it, but right ow (meant to say now, but "ow" ceratina stung me!, meaning to say "ow" certainly describes my feelings for lack of what I belive is necessary ).
I am sorry for my , perhaps incomprehensibe rambling.

I think you made two mistakes with the quote tags, Lorentz - the name of the person you're quoting needs to be in quotation marks, so quote="Adacore", rather than just quote=Adacore and the termination tag is /quote not \quote ;)

I used to try and type song lyrics as I listened to them to improve my touch-typing speed. Depending on the tempo of the song that can be fvery hard indeed. I can push my typing speed up to about 110 words per minute, but the error rate gets too high (around 5-10%) if I type that fast.

...and now I find myself stuck for a text I have sufficiently memorised to enable near-perfect recollection yet is a) complicated enough to pose a challenge & b) neither embarrassing nor obscure. Hmph. Actually, I'll tell you what my particular trouble here is; whilst my typing is genreally pretty perfect (except, I must note, for the occasional switching of letters... *coughs*), I don't seem to think my sentences through enough, to the effect that I found myself wanting to undo what I had just typed and start again with a subtly different phrasing (for instance, I'd much rather have said "slightly" instead of "subtly", but that's small fry in comaprison to say, deciding I don't want to call tihs example small fry b or saying I don't want to go to a "because" there but would rather add this part of the sentence instead). The overall consequence is a thoroughly confuzzled me who's awkwardly more aware of quite how appalling his ability to phrase an English sentence has become at the expense of his cramming of German these past few days... at least I can still type pretty damned well and pretty damned fast to boot (I should have put that last bit in parentheses but going back to correct it is uuuuuurgh) no wait I didn't want to end that there waht are you doing brain I wanna build a longer clause than that aaaaaargh...
This is, er, no offense but you are a robot, aren't you?

You want to become a perfect typist? I don't mean perfect at spelling, just perfect at hitting exactly the key you ment to? Play ADOM. Or any Roguelike for that matter. They don't dick around. One wrong keypress and you're dead. They don't have the fancy interfaces of modern games. They are unrelentingly brutal. They are the nuns of the computer age, waiting for you to make a mistaek to they can hit you on the back of the kunckles with a ruler. Roguelikes are games for *real*men. I see now that I've misspelled a few works and missed a space back there. If I were playing ADOM I'd be dead now...

It does annoy me when I make typing errors, but usually I'm kareful (whoops) enough not to make them. Well, that was ironic. I was going to say, before that slip-up, that I usually only use backspace if aI deicide to change the wording of the sentence. However, deprived of that ability, I realise I do occasionally make geenuine spelling mistakes. Wow, I never realied how important backspace was. (That was meant to be realised...)

I don' think I've ever seen comparison typo'ed as comp... no, not that... typo'ed as comaprison before. It's a nice, poetic word - trapped in a coma, unable to escape. Kind of depressing though.

Deliberately repeating a typo is really difficult if you're trying to type at speed, because you naturally just type words correctly (if you know them). Comaprison. Managed that time.

Aslo I just now noticed that i really can't typwe without looking at the keyboard, and it's gunny tu see that i sometimews justy know i made anseroor, but some dit simply slip by me.

Having just typred "fire-fighting" instead of "clean-up" I think now is a good time to make my bedut in this thread. Hello, world!

Speaking of Hellow World, : Lorenz: You get used to the spaces vs. tabs thing. I still strike tabs, but my editor converts it to spaces like a good fellow. I no longer miss brances (braces) but occasionally the having-to-put-a-\-on-at-the-end-of-a-line-to-make-t-it-wrap -w-around-LFCR thing bothers me.That's probably asn an in issue with my editor. vim. or my use of it.

Readign the above, I have renewed respect for voice-to-keyboard. I never realised my fingers used the backspace so consistently. The voice-to-keyboard problem (or voice-to-text, as I would not e (now) edit the previous instances to) takes the breakless pause of information and transcirbes it immediately. Turns out fingers don't do so well when faces(d) with the same no-turning-back constraint. When measured against stupid-no-backspace, voice-to-text doesn't do half bad!

Edit (no backspaces were pressed in the production of this edit): "breakless pause"? Breakless flow. (If I have to keep the "breakless".)

OK, what can I try to type without mistakes? Something I know off by heart? I'll try Christopher Eccleston's Doctor Who episodes:

Rose, The End of the World, The Unquiet Dead, Aliens of London, World Watr Three, Dalek, The Long Game, Father's Day, The Empty Child, The Doctor Dances, Boom Town, BAd Wolf, The Parting of the Was

Three mistakes! Not bad.

I knew I should have quioted but the quote-trimming for bre vity felt too much like backspacing. Done anyway.

Having rered what I wrote I see that it wasn't that understandable even given the context of the quote. I meant that yeah, tabs and spaces, best thing to do is get your editor to worry about it. However, having to wrap a line using a backspace never gets comfortable. (Example:

result = map(lambda x: x**2, \
randge(24))

(dumb example, and range is a synonym of range is a synonym of randge, defined earlier in the file).)

Yeah, that us (up) there is bloody awful. vim doesn't do line wrapping very nicely oppp---maybe I should take my own advice and figure out how to make the editor make the problem go away.

Edit to add: That's what it feels like! Writing without backspace feels like being very stoned, for me. I don't do it these days because it always felt like when I spoke I was throwing my words into a pit, and when I made a mistake or lost the thread I'd have to backdtrack and correct myself, which could entail more mistakes. So: yeah. Stoned typing is like wait what was I going to write here oh well here comes the full stop.
