Saving my Beacon

Filed under: Random — Mark Dalrymple @ 8:28 pm

I have a love/hate relationship with the MacBook keyboard. I really like the feel, but when I come to the MacBook (personal machine) keyboard after using the MacBookPro (work machine) keyboard (which I like even better), I have a hard time adjusting. In short, my typing is utter and total crap because I hit the corner of keys, which register a keypress by feel, but it doesn’t actually engage the key switch. This makes me sad.

On a whim, I picked up the Mavis Beacon typing tutor thing at the apple store (after going there to caress an iPhone in person). It’s an old, cheesy program, and some of the “games” are embarrassingly awful, but after doing a couple of basic typing exercise, I have the MacBook keyboard “feel” back again, and my typing accuracy improves a whole bunch. Which makes me happy.
