Well I haven't the slightest idea what you were meaning to type...lol I do that all the time. I have a new laptop...well it's 2 mos old. I just can't seem to get used to the keyboard and my hand moves over one set of keys and it's all over with. Now I stare at what I am typing and Backspace is my dearest friend. I also have to use spell check or no one would know what I was trying to say....lol I say I have spaz hands when typing.. Brightest Blessings, Mari

I too have a laptop and it isnt easy. I also cut my fingernails the other day. IT does make a huge difference in the way you type. I'm not gonna tell till some tries to guess. but if you look at the letters on the keyboard you might be able to figure it out.

Wow thats got to be the worst typo ive ever seen and trust me I make some really bad ones myself. I have no idea what you meant to put im afraid. Im always making typos as I tend to type faster than my brain can keep up so it can get a bit muddled that and I touch type often watching the tv so unless I read it back I wont catch the type lol

I think I got it Your welcome. If you move your fingers one key to the right it would be er;vp,r I remember a thread where I was 'talking' to Lordwarwizard and I left out a word and OMG, it changed the whole thing to mean something else. LOL I had him so confused!! It was really funny to me because I knew what I had meant in the first place, but he was totally lost and probably thought I had lost it! Have you seen the e-mail forward that has lots of mispelled words, but you can still read it. I found it amazing that one could still read it even with all the typos! If you haven't seen it, let me know and I'll send it to you. It is so weird in a funny way.

I've seen that. It's like all of the words have the letters in between the first & last letter re-arranged, but like you said, it can be easily understood. Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of it though. It may even make a nice blog for yuwie & rotatix.

Oh yes yes yes! It was horrible. My computer crashed down when I was studying and I have to submit my reaction paper in the afternoon. I went to the computer cafe and started typing my 2 page reaction paper. In my hurry, I didn't really proofread it or check it out then my professor read my reaction paper.. holly molly! I got minus 10 because for some reason that whole sentence is like a garbled letters... darn! I think my fingers were on the wrong positioned that time.. Awww.. I dunno. lolz.

I know someone who made a typo in a chatroom so that the whole sentence was rendered unrecognizable, but I quickly deciphered it. I actually remember that what was typed was this: gu wcwetibw I quickly recognized that "gu" & replied, "Can you move just a little bit to the right please?" I never made a typo that was completely unrecognizable, but instead typos that formed other words. One common one is instead of saying "I'm busy" when I get IM'd, I often say, "I'm busty" ... People knowing that I'm a guy usually know what I'm trying to say, but we always have fun laughing about that. I also remember telling some poor newbie in the chatroom to "lick" the the word "Rules" ... I I hope that he eiter recognized it or I actually corrected myself quickly enough before he actually DID what it said. It wasn't until after someone said something to me that I realized it. There were a few others, but I forgot what they were.

I have no idea what that word is supposed to be, but I guess what you did was put your fingers on the wrong keys, I do that all the time and some strange words come up.

Oh yes. I made a huge typo here at Mylot a while back. It was right in the headline also. I was trying to introduce my sister here to Mylot and I made a dumb typing error somehow. I typed "welocome" instead of welcome her. I'm sure alot of people seen my big mistake.
