    Being able to type, does not equate to computer efficiency, it's simply another way of doing things.

    You sound like a mouser. Keyboard commands are usually faster than mousing and speed is a major part of efficiency.

    I guess that makes people with the new type of screens "touchers"?

    As in "Oooh look at those touchers over there with their fancy new screens" lolol

    I was thinking of calling them "pokers" because you have to poke at the screen to get things to happen.

    Actually, I'm both. I'm able to type at reasonable speeds, I'm also able to use one hand on the keyboard and the other on the mouse. which method I choose to use, is totally independent of my efficiency.

    You just keep thinking that.

    Same exactly as how I do. I don't think I've ever been accused of being inefficient lol.

    I'm ambidextrous and how I'm sitting dictates which hand uses the mouse.

    Likely because you associate with other mousers.

    This conversation reminds me of one that I had long ago and far away with a coworker who claimed that his hunt and peck method of typing was as fast as touch typing. I challenged him to prove it so we were given identical copy and set to typing. I finished in about half the time that he did and, like you guys, he said, "I'm fast enough for me" and stomped out of the room.

    Well, your way is obviously the only way and you're evidently very proud of being so efficient.

    Hi guys

    What's the point

    Haven't you ever heard of the old saying that "Work expands to fill the time available to do it in".
    In my experience around 90% of people have much more time at work than they really need -- the old 5 day 40 hour week is a hangover from the old days when people either did backbreaking stints out farming in the fields picking crops or were employed in enormous factories on shift work.

    Our whole working mechanisms have changed but we still stick to a formula decided by some very ruthless British Victorian Factory owners at the start of "The Industrial Revolution". - Not castigating the British here - but they were the first large industrial power. Others like US and Germany followed exactly the same pattern as they got going around the 1880's.

    Works often comes in peaks -- sometimes there ISN'T enough time but generally who cares if someone takes 10 mins longer to prepare a document than another if there's enough time to complete the thing in the first place.

    I only worry about time in TWO instances

    1) Have Manchester United got enough time left to score that winning Goal
    2) The Pub is going to close and I'm STILL THIRSTY.

    Cheers
