Typo of the day
I type in my own sort of fashion. It's not the kind you learn, because I've never learned formally. I started out hunt-and-peck way back when I got my first Commodore in first grade. Now I use a couple of fingers on each hand. So, anyway, I was not lined up correctly on my right hand, and I mistyped my name in the closing of an email as "Levom" (l-o-m instead of k-i-n on the right hand). And that sounds sort of name-like. Almost Hebrew-sounding or something.

"Lev" means "heart" in Hebrew, though "-om" is not a suffix.

Or you could parse it "le-vom," in which case the "le-" is a prefix meaning "to," though "vom" remains meaningless in Hebrew, as far as I know.
("v-" is a prefix meaning "and," so I guess you could get it to "to and" om, whatever om turns out to be...)

I hadn't realized you don't touch type in the usual way.

I learned typing in a similar fashion. Hunt-and-peck driven by countless hours interacting online limited only by my typing speed.

I have the same problem too -- one or both hands often offset from where they belong.

I've come to realize that my brain has learned how to type 10K or so word-patterns rather than 26 letters. I can't enter an unfamiliar word or type the alpabet without errors.

Can you type the alphabet in order without looking at the keybaord? Bet you lose it around 'x' if not before. :-)
