I used to be a fairly good typer, but having a laptop and typing on strange angles has gotten me back to typing with two fingers, but I'm still pretty damn fast.

Sometimes I can type >100wpm, sometimes not... I usually make mistakes when I type that fast, and it's only when I have what I'm going to type visualized.

That happens being a computer geek and typing many times more words per day than you say out loud.

I can't wait until I can play sports again. I won't have to sit on the computer all day anymore.

Yeah, no kidding. But your ribs didn't sideline you for 9 and 1/2 months (when I will finally be able to go back to sports), did they? You have no idea how anxious I am to go and ride my bike and play a game of baseball.

d4nny, if you type that well normally, try to type that well here (which I doubt you would have 100% accuracy all of the time due to the fact that nobody is perfect). It would be highly appreciated.

How can you be 100% and not type properly? That seems impossible to me.

"proper" typing dictates a certain finger position (there is a HOME position for the hand)...
I use a modified "Hunt-and-peck" w/o so much hunting anymore

Dharma: the underlying order in nature and human life and behaviour considered to be in accord with that order.
Ethically, it means 'right way of living' or 'proper conduct,' especially in a religious sense. With respect to spirituality, dharma might be considered the Way of the Higher Truths.
Dharma is a central concept in religions and philosophies originating in India. These religions and philosophies are called Dharmic religions. The principal ones are Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism, all of which emphasize Dharma (the correct understanding of Nature) in their teachings. In these traditions, beings that live in accordance with Dharma proceed more quickly toward Dharma Yukam, Moksha or Nirvana (personal liberation).
Dharma also refers to the teachings and doctrines of the founders of these traditions, such as those of Gautama Buddha and Mahavira. In traditional Hindu society with its caste structure, Dharma constituted the religious and moral doctrine of the rights and duties of each individual.

Dharma can also mean 'enlightened one'
New Dharma=New enlightened one!

(i really like the Beat authors...Jack Kerouac, William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Neal Cassady, Gregory Corso, Peter Orlovsky...)

Dharma is based on the idea that everything in the universe is causally linked. All things are composite things, that is, they are composed of several elements. Because all things are composite, they are all transitory, for the elements come together and then fall apart. It is this transience that causes human beings to sorrow and to suffer. We live in a body, which is a composite thing, but that body decays, sickens, and eventually dies, though we wish it to do otherwise. Since everything is transient, that means that there can be no eternal soul either in the self or in the universe. This, then, is the eternal truth of the world: everything is transitory, sorrowful, and soulless–the three-fold character of the world.

EDIT: Dharma's definition is better.
