I’ve worn the letters right off the keys.
I hope the picture is clear enough.
Are totally or almost all worn off.
My laptop is 5 years old. I’ve just bought a new one, but still spend time with this old reliable. I’ve been retired for 5 years so that does explain the time to be online. Still, I was a teacher and technology coordinator in my working life, so being attached to a keyboard was always a normal part of my day.
I remember reading “The Gold Bug” in elementary school about code breaking based on most used letters of the alphabet. The wear on my keyboard verifies this theory. The Q,W,Z,X,C,B,V are as good as new.
Regardless of the effect on my keyboard, I must say that the time spent online has been very worthwhile. It’s partly responsible for the “new me" since the time spent on SP keeps my motivation high and the support I've received has encouraged me to keep writing.
However, it’s a good thing I touch type. My keyboard really frustrates my ‘hunt and peck’ DH.
