    CS Professors


    I just noticed something today that really gets on my nerves: CS professors that are mostly computer illiterate. Some of these CS teachers seem like they're scared of the computer...they can't type more than 10GWAM and mouse around like they've never done it before. It's just so annoying.

    It is worse when you are in an IT department and the only thing that support people know how to do is to reset the %PATH% variable in windows to fix something, then tell you to reboot - when you very well know it is a graphics driver problem! LOL
    I work with some people who are very good, programming and doing the business apps in general, but they can't type either, just the two finger kind.
    In fact, the best DBA I've ever known was a two finger typer.

    there are styles to typing? holy crap ... i think i might be one of those three fingered variations then. no four, i lost count while typing. i use the pointer finger on my right hand, and then the index, middle and ring on my other hand. does that make me some sort of freak??? uhh ... lol. i have no clue where that all came.

    I've alway's thought people who type slowly don't spend enough time in front of a PC

    Damn these non-geeks!

    Try Dvorak! That makes typing a bit faster.

    i agree with you J, but I look at my brother who is a year younger then me, and he was the most out of defunkt way of typing i have ever seen, and for a g33k like myself, it annoys this piss out of me. he uses only ONE finger ... his middle finger. (something about my family and our middle fingers) The sad thing is that he is pretty quick with it now, although i still yell at him about it cause i still find it annoying.

    Yeah...I've tried to yell at my sister a lot for not typing properly. And I think it sank in. I'm pretty sure that she types with her hands in the right spots. Gotta raise'em right!
