As an IT person, I type things a lot. I type the same things a lot, even. However, despite LITERALLY years of experience and practice typing some of the same damn things my fingers stubbornly refuse to learn some of them. I mean, it’s pretty bad sometimes.
Here are some of my favourites.
ip[config ipconig etc
Ah yes, any nerd worth his salt knows this beauty. And no, that damn bracket doesn’t belong there. But, despite probably 20 years of practice, that’s what I type every damn time, or some jumble of things that look close, but not quite right.
So, I work for Microsoft now, but even before that I essentially lived and breathed Microsoft Exchange (an email server product) for YEARS. Needless to say, I have probably typed that word a million times in my lifetime. Have I even come close to achieving proficiency? Nope.
And finally, the shortest most frustrating word that for whatever reason just won’t come out right the first time:
Yeah, that’s supposed to be ping. Four letters. Wrong like 75% of the time. How is that even possible?
And all of this gets so much worse when someone is watching me type, it’s like my fingers are giving a 4th grade speech in front of the school.
Thanks for reading, I feel much better now, exorcising those denoms.
