About Me Hello, it's always exciting to type fast! I enjoy having good ones here with you guys.

- Bio -

I started typing on a Fujitsu word processor that my parents had mothballed but they would once a year dust off to write New Year's cards. I just wanted to play a game, but all my digging through their storeroom was to no avail as it was merely bundled with a touch typing tutorial, which said 'Hone your typing skills, you might be able to type without glancing at the keyboard in 2 weeks!', but I thought that this was a hoax and that this would have been a stunt if possible, after all that tutorial had no any practice modes. But I decided that I should give it a shot anyway as it wouldn't be so bad to waste a couple of weeks tapping the keys because I had found that it was so fantastic to type after typing the lyrics of songs that had crossed my mind. It turned out that it just took 3 days for me to learn touch typing, although now I know that this progress as a beginner wasn't special and I wasn't particularly a quick learner. I was glad that the idea of typing without glancing wasn't a hoax, after all!

It's always good to race to get faster. Many typing games were shooter games at that time, namely, 10 years ago, I didn't find that they were fun to play again and again. I believed that they only encouraged hunt-and-peck typing with a couple of letters or words spawning at a time. Anyway, I came to typeracer years later, I'm glad that this place gives us a lot of opportunities and challenges.

- Typing style -

Keyboard layouts - QWERTY, DVORAK, AZERTY, Russian ЙЦУКЕН, Japanese QWERTY.
Finger positioning - Always start typing by placing the index fingers on the bumps (on the F and J keys); In this way, I'm stuck with the 'proper finger placement.'
Backspace - the ring finger. This is the only exception to that finger placement mentioned above as Backspace is covered by the pinky in that rule. I rest my wrists while typing and with them pinned down on my desk I slightly tilt my right hand to reach this key with the ring finger because it's longer than the pinky.
The space bar - the left thumb, although I'm right-handed.
The shift keys - I use both, press the right one with the pinky to capitalize letters on the left side of the keyboard and vice versa.
Capitalization - The shift key for the first letter; Caps Lock for acronyms and emphasized words.

- Universes -
