then im the exception

because I can write at an equally incredible speed whether or not i look at the keyboard
In response to Gazoot (#8)
I'm not so much concerned about configuring the keyboard as switching between typing methods. Some kinds of learning are easy to swap -- for example, you can alternate between walking, roller-skating, and riding a bike without needing to re-acclimate yourself whenever you switch modes of transportation. But if you switch between, say, a DOS command line, a UNIX command line, and a VMS command line, it's pretty easy to forget the environment you're in and use the command that's most familiar to you.

It might be easier than you think... probably more along the lines of speaking two different languages, and switching back and forth. As long as you keep practicing them both, this is not a big deal.

Of course, you don't even need a keyboard to write, since you write on paper. And, you're not a "typist" if you look at the keys, you're just a fast typer. A typist is someone that can type with very little flaw at decent speeds without looking at the keys.

Here's a standard definition that may clear up his statement:

Incredible: So implausible as to elicit disbelief

Yup. Incredible.

Yes, I type incredibly fast, and incredibly accurate at it aswell.

Im quick to repair any mistakes I make, and damn, im way ahead of the rest of these people.

That lack of a space would claim otherwise.

Not to mention the missing ' in I'm in the next sentence... =)

Not once, but twice... And a non-capitalized "i" in the second instance...

I dont know whats in your eyes, but there is no missing space.

And I rarely ever put apostrophes in. I stated that I was quick and accurate, not that Im a grammar freak OR that I communicate clearly.

I didn't have any trouble spotting it.

Accuracy includes correct apostrophes, capitalization, and spelling. Anything else is known as a "typo."

No space... Digitalmouse was correct...

And the very essence of "accuracy" in typing is proper spelling and grammar... Leaving out apostrophes definitely is not accurate... Therefore, you are not accurate... Quick, maybe, but not accurate...

you damn idiot, aswell is a word.
In response to Dareb (#30)
That may be true, but I'm just messing with you... You've got no control over my "strings"...
In response to Dareb (#33)
No, it is not... "As well" is a phrase meaning "also"... But "aswell" is not a word...
In response to Skysaw (#31)
aswell is one word OR two words.

and accuracy has nothing to do with grammar or punctuation.

Here we go again.

Dareb, you really ought to check your facts before hitting the post button. Once again, you are inventing language, and once again, you look foolish.

"aswell" is not a word. "as" and "well" are two words, however.

This attitude will have you fail a typing test. No soup for you!
In response to SuperSaiyanGokuX (#35)
it can be used either way.

The english language is wide and complex, it has room for many odd words. But it does not have room for people like you.

The english language grows, and continues to grow.

Aswell is a word.
