At work and in the past from female co-workers who sit near me hate my typings since they're loud and sometimes fast. One of them instant messaged (IM'ed) me this morning:

[11:48] co-worker: what r u doing????
[11:48] co-worker: ur so loud
[11:49] antdude: bah typing duh!
[11:49] antdude: don't make me type LOUDER
[11:49] co-worker: keep it down
[11:49] antdude: NO!
[11:49] co-worker: :-P
[11:49] antdude: haha

A few weeks ago, another one said "Stop killing/abusing your keyboard!" Bah, I say! Computer geeks love these clicky keyboards. I noticed all females seem to hate clicky keyboards. Hmm! I hate soft keyboards though and I can't type well with them. :(

A few years ago, another woman said similiar thing and suggested I get a soft keyboard. WHATEVER!!

I need to get one of those old, steel, IBM keyboards (Model M) to drive them even more annoyed. Currently I just use the cheap generic ones and from Dell. They're old too and still work. One of my college friends said that I type like a machine gun. :)

I can't use those natural keyboards due to lack of thumbs and four fingers on each hand.

Now, my boss too.

Hehe. Now, my boss says I type too loud. I told her that if I can't type loud, I won't be able to finish my tasks fast even on soft keyboards. So, it's her choice. :P

Tactile feedback!

PSVMOrnot's /. comment tells why clicky keyboards are better than tablet keyboards. Your old school overlord loves to feel and hear without looking at the keyboards. ;)
