    typing tutor software

    I used to be able to type without looking at the keyboard, but somewhere along the way I b0rked myself and now am stuck always looking at my fingers while I type.
    Can anyone recommend me some good typing tutor software that will help me break my bad habit? Preferably freeware of shareware but I'm willing to shell out a few bucks for any software that is highly recommended.

    Thanks

    thats OK... i do it, too from time to time.


    may as well look up some Aggression while i;m at it. i still have some tracks off Minor Threat's red and blue albums, and some tapes of Rudimentary Peni.


    that was some great stuff...... sounded like a somebody was beating a baby with a cat, but then again, the musicianship wasn;'t what it was all about.





    oh, sorry for the threadjack....... Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing.
