The Case For Mandatory Touch-Typing In High School

jaydebard Learn Anywhere (705 comments)

I think it's a great idea to add this to a school's required course. I was fortunate enough to grow up with a computer in the early 80s and being only about 6 or 7 years old my dad made me learn to type with a simple program in DOS. It was probably the best thing he has ever made me do in my life!

Finding New and Unintended Ways of Playing Games

jaydebard WoW & Spore (346 comments)

I often find myself wandering around in circle in Dalaran while just chatting on vent. The time could be spend fishing, mining, or doing anything else, but it's nice to just do nothing sometimes. On a more in-depth note, if you haven't checked out Spore for some time-wasting, I suggest you do. The amount of customization in the game is unreal. I can spend hours just creating a space ship custom to my liking that I get to fly around with in space and explore thousands of star systems with!
