Has this happened to you? It happens to me more than often. When it happens, I tend to make mistakes and it takes more time to write even three or four lines of posts. It took almost 2 minutes to write this post!!

what do you mean by household chruches? Do you want to say that your fingers got tired because of some household jobs? Never heard before. My fingers were in pain when I first typed for 8 hours and the next day I could cook food, the pain was killing me.

Hey, Yep, this always happens to me! Especially when I am on MyLot. When it comes to typing for a few hours my fingers also get tired like your sanuanu. I make HUGE mistakes but I always try and correct them. The main problem if I try and type for a few hours straight is that I make huge errors. My typting speed actually doesn't go down that much, but my errors increase probably by about 50%! Some days I post on MyLot for about 3 hours straight which if you combine that with over 60 words per minute of typing that can sometimes lead to a LOT of posts. And if you write posts with 150 words per more, your fingers will DIE! Then I start to lose concentration which naturally means that you will type slower, and then I fall asleep which naturally means that you will stop typing! ;)

Ofcourse. I don't go for 60-70 words response every time. I make it upto 30-40 words per response or discussion. Earlier I used to be on mylot for 3-3.5 hours but soon I realized that It will do no good for my fingers. So, I reduced it to 2 hours a day. Now, my fingers don't feel that much pain.

Yes. I actually have carpel tunnel syndrome in my right hand. When I over use it it becomes swollen between my thumb and the rest of my fingers and on the back side of my wrist. My hands are then painful with movement and loose flexibility. I am also slower and make more mistakes. This is a repetitive strain injury that I sustained while working as a cashier for 6 years.

I am very sorry to hear that. So, how do you manage to type responses here on mylot. I mean it must be painful for you to type with your right hand because what I understood from you is that your right hand has pain and we do lot of writing with our right hand. Thank you very much for sharing your information with us.

No my fingers are dancing on my keyboard when I write. They pretty much work by them selfs...I never have to look at the letters when writing. Sometimes I make a misstake when writing but that often. I like writing and I like to see on the screen that when I write I do type right most of the time...I guess when I sit to long my sufing finger get tired now or then..but it is not to bad...just a few minutes brake and the go on surfing again...lol

I have no idea how many words I write in an hour, but I also use the touch writing and I never look at the letters when I write. But I make lots of words in short timeI have never measured the numbers of words. It was really in one time in my life when I was suppose to work in an office so I went to a course of typing, now I work as a assitanse nurse and need very little writing..therefore mylot is a great place to keep up the touch writing.

Oh okay! So you must have had that course on a type writer havn't you? By the Way, nice quote: Keep in touch with touch typing!

I guess that you only type with two fingers huh ? hehehe. Try taking one of those typing lessons you can do online, or a program, and if you type with all your fingers they dont tire out as quickly :)

I am a full touch type typist. My typing speed is almost 40. I have posted this discussion because my finger were in pain and I was making many mistakes that's why it took 2 minutes to write that post.

My finger get tired easily when I type.I learned to type when I was over thirty years old, which is almost too old to learn typing. But I managed to learn to type with only one finger. Now I type mostly with my righthand index finger. My speed has inproved a lot.

Yea, its not only about the finger but the eyes would get tired as you need to look into the keyboard every time you type, isn't it?

That's true. But I don't believe I can learn to type without looking at the keyboard.

Most of the people in this world type by looking at keyboard. I have seen in my college that people who are studying computers, are also typing by looking at the keyboard.

I don't think my fingers have ever felt tired because of typing, I think I'm fair about typing, not good but not bad. I can type for a long time don't feel tired and I think I like it too, that's why I'm staying on mylot as well ;-)

My fingers do get tired when I am typing a lot. I try to space out what I am doing online that way I am not typing too much. I even seem to get some carple tunnel symptoms as well so I need to be careful how long I am typing. Take care and happy mylotting to you friend.

Typing all day? That is very tough. I used to type for 8 hours or so earlier in my life when I was a data entry operator. Then I had so many problems with my fingers. that is why I left that job.

I have had tired fingers before especially if I have written a long response in which I do every once in a while. I don't usually make my replies very long because I can reach burn out pretty easily.

Hmm, For me I am not a long response writer. I usually write only 3-4 lines of response. Its rare that I type a long discussion or reply. Most of the time you will find it short and simple. It can also be because I can't think many things when I am typing.

Yeah, My fingers do get tired, then I make mistakes in typing words correctly and since I type a lot in each response, after three minutes typing seven or six lines it feels as if my fingers had been broken by someone and then pasted them back with superglue :D Although some people tend to enjoy this type of feeling, I know one of them!

Hi There! Oh yeah… there are times that I don’t want to go to work because I am tired of typing. When I was working in my previous company, I was a chat support and I need to accommodate 4 sessions at a time if needed… I need to type for 8 hours a day… so it is really hard for me to keep on typing… my fingers are getting tired.. and it hurts sometimes. I am a chat support for a year, I kinda miss that job because I don’t have to talk to the customers… or interact with them… but I find it easy to talk to them on the phone since I can say what I want to say lolz… I think it would be nice if you have a little massage on your hands.. t hat is why I always went to spa to relax myself… after work… lolz. Happy Mylotting and Merry Christmas! Cheers!

If I type a long articles, maybe more than two pages, my fingers become tired. If else, I haven't felt tired because sometimes I just scroll through the browser with my mouse - my fingers are taking rest.

I am a from those persons who hates mouse. I don't like mouse as an input devise. I always try to find ways to avoid mouse. I only use it while surfing otherwise from opening my PC to working on Word, excel or even programming and to shutting down my pc, I do use only keyboard. Weird isn't it?

Nice line of thinking. Typing is faster than other modes of writing but always slower than thikning because thinking is faster than light.

My hands do get tired sometimes. It just depends on how much typing I do that day. It also depends on what all I've done that day.

Well, since I do it in the morning so the thing doesn't matter that what I do in the rest of day. Earlier when I used to do a DEO job then I use to have pain in my fingers a lot. Now, I don't suffer that much because I then used to type for 8 hours regularly.

no, not my fingers... i can type lots and lots of pages and will not have my fingers get tired from typing... maybe because i am so used of typing that's why it dont get tired anymore... the part of my hand that gets tired when typing too much is my wrist. it is where i feel pain when i have typed too much, but it takes a lot pages for me to feel that pain. we used to have a computer shop near a university here and all the time i would type students; research paper the whole day. my finger dont get tired my wrist does.

It happens occasionally that my fingers don't seem to want to type. They appear tired of typing or writing, or something like that. It happens that sometimes it seems to take forever to write two lines on the computer.
