There is a down side. I can barely see the paint on the keys anymore. I have been behind a keyboard since the IBM Selectric, and I still type with two fingers. I need the paint.

Well, I do spacebar with either thumb. And 10-key by touch.

I found $10 in my case once. Don't know how that got there.

Speaking of typewriters - Why are the keys scrambled? The science of how they are scrambled is not the correct answer.

Two ten letter words can be spelled using the top row of letters. What are the two words?

Seven letter word using all five vowels once each?

Two words, with at least five letters, whose pronunciation is identical to the pronunciation of the first letter in the word? "Be" is a two letter example.

Iayyee-iayyee-iayyee-iayyee,

Canta y no llores ....

I just threw out my 28 year old beige Selectric while reconstructing my basement. I refused to learn to type 40 years ago 'cause "that's for secretaries" . I paid this girl to keypunch my Fortran decks . Now I hunt & peck (& curse at myself) 12 hours a day . Too much later on I tried to learn - Mavis Beacon, Intellitype, you name it. NFG.

Oh, right, almost forgot. I change my motherboard every 12-15 months or so ...

I think it is because in early typewriters the keys (I mean this arm which stamped letter to the paper, don`t know how to say it in English) were moving back and forth, so most common letters where put different side of keyboard / printing mechanism to avoid collision?

Using every letter there is:

Typewriter

Perpetuity

Then a couple of other 10 letter words:

Proprietor

Repertoire
