+1 and +1 @Inaimathi. What should be said about "Mad copy and paste skillz"? As soon as you are comfortable doing some task in a code base it is likely time for some refactoring. Often those who produce a lot, are rocking along to an emerging anti-pattern.

@Rachel, qwerty was designed so the hammers on typewriter wouldn't jam, by slowing you down a bit and spreading out the most common letters. Dvorak is designed to put common letters on home row and real close by. Makes you super speedy, but you have to mentally reprogram your typing. I haven't even attempted to learn it.
