While this is definitely OT, I strongly suggest you take the time to learn to touch-type. 
(Actually, I would recommend it for everyone.)  It's true that it will take time, effort, 
practice and diligence, especially time and practice, but if you do make the effort you'll never 
regret it.

Eventually you'll find that you think (or read) a word, your fingers will wiggle a little bit 
and that word suddenly appears on screen.  It's an _*EXTREMELY*_ useful ability -- well worth 
the time and effort.

I was able to take it as a summer class in high school some 60+ years ago (I'm old  ;-)  ), and 
I've always been very glad that I did.  (Even though I'm still not highly accurate and fairly 
frequently make typos, it's still much better than hunt-and-peck typing.)  I definitely suggest 
it is well worth learning.
