Home row, sweet home row

I a no u esed in the hoe o o oa

Translation: I am now fully versed in the home row of dvorak.

It's level 9 on the dvorak7min application. I even type with proper form!

This is all pretty exciting for me since I learned how to type qwerty ad-hoc. I starting using computers long before anybody wanted to teach me how to type properly, so I learned where all the keys were through finger-muscle memory (at 70-80 words per minute). I'm not totally sure what learning how to type properly gains me, but I hope that it'll help me avoid all the problems in the WRULD.
