For any else suffering from back/wrist strain - Cornell has loads of resources on RSI and ergonomic office design here:

I hope that's a help to someone.

My index finger Jul 17, 2008

Yeah, I knew this would ruin someone's day...
My index finger is giving me hell today (I still haven't started that typing course...). I really must start with that very very soon...
Did you have any luck with the programme?

Don't make it worse... Jul 17, 2008

I did start the typing course but then I got a job in with a tight deadline...

Maybe we should make progress reports, compete to see who learns it first, to get it doneicon_wink.gif

typing course Jul 17, 2008

What typing course are you guys talking about here?
I'm just picking up touch typing myself (and I'm cursing at accented Hungarian letters profusely... those who work into English have it so easy).

xxxx teaches typing Jul 18, 2008

Hi Harris,

I have the above CD not wanting to do any "Schleichwerbung" (camouflaged advertising).

It's in English and good fun, more like a computer game and supposed to also get your speed up.

I fooled around with it because I wanted to start a side line as a typist, however, it turned out that I sometimes have a hard time understanding what's being said on the tapes...

If you are interested I have version 15, it was around 50 Pounds 3 years ago. I would let you have it for a couple of quits.


Martin

TypeFaster Jul 18, 2008

FarkasAndras, the prog mentioned above is called TypeFaster. It is a free typing tutorial available here:

http://www.typefastertypingtutor.com/

No idea how good it is, but perhaps Ivana and I can post progress reports in a TypeFaster thread? When we finally get around to trying the darn thing...

Wenz (icon_wink.gif ), thanks very much for the offer. I'll try the freebie first and then get back to you!

Next week Jul 18, 2008

- I am definitely starting the typing course again! What I did was good, quite addictive (the only remedy is a deadline...).
