What do you mean by "fingers do the typing"?
Where typing skills are such that you don't even think about where the fingers are going. "-ing" at the end of a word is typed almost like a single character, whereas "-ine" takes a bit more thought. If you're thinking about typing the word like "divine", you will almost certainly get it right - but if you're just letting your fingers glide along with little attention to what they're actually doing, "-ing" seems to be the default.

Definitely not the "hunt and peck" system.

I'm old enough that I learned to type on a manual typewriter - yes, the ones that have the moving carriage and a bell that dings as you approach the end of a line and have to return the carriage manually. In the typing classroom, the keys were all blank. Looking down at the fingers was no help whatsoever. Learn the home keys and go from there. A challenge to learn, but it worked. Without wraparound text, we even had to learn syllabification!

Ahh, ok, I get ya now :) I used to type stuff on my mom's type writer when I was a kid, just for fun, but by the time I needed to learn how to really type they had those new fangled computers in the schools

This is made very clear once you begin typing in a new language even if you are fluent in it.

Very frustrating.

I'm not that old and I still used a typewriter for a couple of years during my childhood!

As a contract transcriber now, I couldn't imagine using a typewriter, the horrors. When I get tired, my accuracy goes downhill really quickly. (I'm talking about falling asleep at the keyboard tired, not basic fatigue, which I always have anyway.)

Sometimes I read the posts on this board and I think, "Ha ha, weirdos, you have no lives!"

But I am actually very jealous of the knowledge that many seem to possess on this board. I know that I've only been a catechumen for about 6 months now, but as always, I have unrealistic expectations of myself. I have a lot of admiration for the way that you all know so much about the faith. Even the inquirers put me to utter shame.


Plus, I've also just realized that I am no good at memorizing facts, and will probably never be that person anyway. Oh, well. God gives different gifts to different people! We can't all be walking encyclopedias. ;)

Argh! I got home to find our ceiling-mounted fire alarm is beeping, probably because the battery's dead.

And I can't unattach it because my sciatica's acting up and I can't climb the ladder.  So I have to wait till my husband gets home (at least an hour more)!

Meanwhile, our indoor kitty cat is freaking out - and I may join her!!!



Aaagh!!

Facts just ain't my weapon but wit and willingness to use fiery rhetoric up to physical intimidation to prove peanut butter during fasting is a grave sin. And that is with my Priest. You should see how I behave with the laity. No quarter.

Things Netflix know about me that you probably wouldn't guess . . .

I love their mouthful confabulation of genres they believe you would be interested in.

Ones that I might not care to share, but nonetheless Netflix knows my heart in ways the no person does. After rating over 16k films and TV shows, it sure better.

You might like films from:

Heartfelt Independent Tearjerkers

Teen TV Shows Featuring a Strong Female Lead

Understated Opposites Attract Comedies

Exciting High School TV Shows

Witty TV Shows Featuring a Strong Female Lead


And I had to include one obviously:

Dark Dysfunctional-Family Documentaries

Well, I like to think they got this one wrong, but for what its lacks in accuracy (I hope) it makes up for in precision:

Feel-good Coming-of-age Movies for ages 8 to 10

^ LOL Orthonorm, have you been watching the Bratz movies lately?

I don't have Netflix yet (we're setting it up after we move), but I imagine that my recs might look like this:
-Reality TV show starting vapid women who spend whole day shopping
-Law/cop dramas with little to no backstory of characters
-TV shows/films set in the 1950s
-TV shows about unconventional families
-Medical dramas without the drama

I use Netflix through streaming on the X Box 360 sometimes. The nature films with flyovers of the national parks look really neat in HD.  :)

Hah. I share an account with my sister, so our combined tastes can get some odd results:

Family Feature Animation for ages 11 to 12
Violent Foreign Sci-Fi & Fantasy
Suspenseful Chinese Action & Adventure
Dark Science & Nature Documentaries
Imaginative Space Travel TV Shows
Inspiring Biographical Movies
Exciting Japanese Fantasy
British Talking-Animals Kids' TV
Goofy Cult Mad-Scientist Movies
Historical Documentaries

All right, so none of them are as interesting as yours, but I started posting it and didn't feel like stopping.

I'm a Liverpool fan.  If the Reds can get their you know what's in gear, I think they can really make a run for it.  I'm liking the lineup more and more, but they need to break through from the perennial 6th spot.

Well with Daglish back as manager I have to admit, I am fearing Liverpool for the first time in a while. With Suarez at stricker, they can be VERY dangerous.

Day One: Spending Spree
Day Two: Starvation

Sounds like my life, only I spread it out over a longer period of time...

Step one: Get a very modest amount of money.
Step two: Pay bills and take care of necessities.
Step three: Impulsively buy unnecessary items like books.
Step four: Run out of money and live on a diet of ramen noodles and tap water for several days until I get more money.
Step five: Repeat.

I have a second meeting with Major League Soccer club Houston Dynamo on Saturday.

The first meeting went well, they interviewed me and I went through many drills (I did better on the drills than the interview lol).

Hopefully within the next few months I'll be a professional footballer.  :laugh:

Please pray for me.

Is there such a category as a proto-hipster? We were hipster before hipsters were hipster?

Do you really want to call me out?

I am better than you all and hipper.

That is my problem with hipsters, they are uniform insects that are constantly drawn to my blazing aura of the obscurant, blinded and flying headlong into me one after another attempting to find something authentically other.

I have some hipster related questions (the only thing I know is that hipsters do not self-identify as such):

How is it related to a subculture?  Is it a sub-subculture, an archsubculture, or none of the above?  Did mainstream folks just decide one day that it wasn't "cool" to be perceived as mainstream?

Do hipsters listen to a specific kind of music?  Most subcultures traditionally identify with a particular form of music, usually being somewhat eponymous, e.g. punks=punk rock, metalheads=heavy metal, mods=mod (and soul and reggae/ska), rockers=rock 'n roll/rockabilly, ravers=rubbish, etc.  Seems they don't, or I don't know about it.  I'm guessing it's horrid though.
