No Backspace Key!
The object of this "game" is to try typing without ever pressing the backspace. I am horrible at typing without errors, and the backspace button and I have a love/hate relationship. I hate needing it, but I love that it is available. I might break it one day from overuse.
This is going to be a very random conversation thread. Talk about anything you wish. But, (this is important!) do not use the backspace key at all. SOME of you are probably not going to see any difference in your skills. Ah, if only I were one of those lucky few
---- So, here goes my attempt at avoiding the backspace key. I'm looking forward to March, obviously, and should really just go out and figure out what forum everyone is working on for Feb, but that would take research and time and I'd really rather not bother whith the shiny new MarNo ready to run. Lazy, yes. Also, it appears my sentences are really long when I am avoiding the backspace key, but I haven't made too many errors. Maybe I'm tryping to cslolwly - um slowly.
How is everyone going? I'm doing great. Just bought a new laptop today, though I won't have it for a few more days/weelk. I have a car, too. Busy spending all my hard earned money. Just in time for March, thoguh. Now I can drive to the cafe and type on my newe, hopefully not overheating, latptop. Woot!!

My backspacekey is in okay condition but I lost the A key to a terrible accident of some kind (industrial overuse?) so I had to take off the 'page down' key and use the scissor bit to fix the A. Poor old laptoop - it has all kinds of projblems. Most of them are just age. I think I'm the only person I know using a laptop that's... too ld for me to be able to calculate right now. Got it in my third year at uni, which was before I did the web design stuff and I guess that iended in 2010 so I guess the laotop is from 2006?
Why isn't writing turning out to be an awesome get0righch-scheme ? Possibly because U can't type?
Okay, I give up...
You've met Siana. Your mind is now lost.
Just don't mention the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks...
March 2014 goal: add 30k to The Artist.

That wasn't bad. I have a terribly old laptop, too. I have an new one comming today, thoguh. Exciting! Though, really it won't be ready to use for a few days, because I'll ned to instadll all the files, programs, etc. And learn the new OS. I'm not excited about widnows 8, but it was on the lapbot (laptop) I corderered so, there a-you have it. Stuck. At least it will nbe new and have more memory. I used my current laptops memeory the second I installed iTunes. It doesn't hold even half of my itunes crap. I need to stop buying songs/movies.

Ha ha! I cheated! I am using speech to text!*Basks in the glow of her own awesomeness*
That said, the speech to text on my phone is hilarious, and I am bound to slip up. It's not like I always no the whole of my reply in advance, and speaking punctuation out loud is just asking for trouble!*Forgets what she was going to say next*
… The previous sentence. Of course it would pick the wrong "no" and the wrong "whole". QED.
As for what forum everyone else is hanging out on, I think this would probably be where a lot of people are. In any case, sometimes it is better to *Rethink sentence*nope, must avoid rephrasing.
All*silence* … I forgot what I was going to say again. You know what, maybe I will cut out the stream of consciousness
The only advantage to writing a text reply is that the very nature of medium and it's out all the awkward silences where I sit staring at my phone like an idiot with the speech to text light blinking at me with its guilty guilt stare. Just going to say, everyone, BACK up your mobile/story/poetry/whatever. … That's supposed to say Mobile not mobile. This week, my hard drive (external) started making alarming noises. That one is gone. Luckily, I managed to get all the stuff off it,. Actually, I thought that might internal AND external hard drives were going to crash, but apparently the internal one is fine, which is a relief. I was panicking a couple of days ago because they both started making alarmingly this at the same time, and it would suck if both the original and the backup failed at the same time. Did I say that already? Stupid smallscreen. Anyway, I can't wait until I get my desktop back. Typing on the tablet or speaking on the phone is just not the same. I'm sure this is RIVETING stuff./Sarcasm
Anyway, you can never be too careful. I am just REALLY glad that I have a current backup of my hard drive, unknown functioning external drive, and that most of the important stuff-well, ALL, Is backed up on a location that is not on my desk.
Oh, dear. Inserting BB code while trying to speak it out loud want to be problematic. In any case, I HOPE that the above came out of the horizontal line, I'm not some terribly disfigured code mutant. I haven't. Change of subject.
… Dang.*And*not some terribly disfigured code mutant. Whether I am one or not is another subject entirely. Who is to say that I don't just exist solely on the Internet? But I digress. I think I remember what I wanted to say now. Yeah a for getting a new laptop! I hope you and Windows 8 Getalong. I have a computer that came with it, and I absolutely hate that operating system. The lack of the start menu, and that's stupid metro user interface with the stupid tiles really baffled me.
Moon. Running iTunes on Windows is brutal. Maybe it might help to continue downloading songs and videos, but using some other software to organize them? iTunes tends to really slow down windows a lot. Especially if it is on a laptop.
Okay, I actually have no idea how long this block of text came out to be, but I suspect it is approaching monolithic proportions. *Insert record of screeching code monkeys pounding at it and climbing all over it and hitting it, such to the SET to the theme song of 2001: A Space Odyssey.*
Correction: a hard of screeching code monkeys pounding at my monolithic forum post monolith.
I give up.

"I'm not some terribly disfigured code mutant."
Ah. I laughed and laughed. Thansk!
i already miss the backspace.
What was "WHOLE ward" Oh - Horde. LOL. I like the bit about the monkeys. Awesome. I seriously can not think of anything to say, here. Which makes it strangely easy to type correctly while thinking so much about the word I am about to type.... but not anywhere near interesting. Sorry.
How about a short story? or a tale. How about my favorite "It was a dark and story night (stormy)...which left me with cold pizza inthe dark because pizza doesn't warm well on mlaptop batteries."
Managed to msss that up!
So. It's past time for me to get some sleep. Especially since I need to be up really early (okay, early for me) tomorrow morning. So, why can't I get to sleepyou may ask? Because I have to get up early in the morning... its a visciously evil cycle. And that is the strangest spelling of vicious Iv'e seen. At least- for today. Okay. Time to quite and get to bed. quite. lol *quit
I'd like to thak all of you for participating! Good night!

It was a dark and storym stormy night...which meant that I was indoors in bunny slippers and a bunny suit, ready to deliver sopping wet easter eggs to children.
I don't know. That's the stupidest best I could do. XD
Ehehehe it's licke vicious and si aaargh viscous. Viscous viscosity vicious.
Vermicious K'nid. They are viscous and vicious.
Wow. I thought I wou/d would think of something to say here, but it's really hard, actually. Hmm, let's see how fast I can type and stirlll still get everything right. Hah, got something wrong even before I could type that out!
I really should de a do a fifty headed hydra challenge.
Hey guys, I have an idea!
We soul aaaaargh should do fifty headed hydra challenges on the no backspace thread here! It doesn't have to be abotu about anything we're working on, fi if we'd rather keep that private , but nothing puts on the pressure lie like knowing people will see what yu you write! We can do free writing or something, whatever works.
I sholud should put my money where my mouth is.
Setting my timer....
the pain of the bear was quite acute. oh god , this is gettir getting brutal.
The twisted sect stared into the night. (Hah, so it looks like song lyrics are getting in to this! ) Okay, I really should stop with the third thought comments, or whatevere these are .THey're getting in the way of writing! Okay, done.
So, I was about to set out to grab some lunch for myself and my best friend, who owned teh aforementionde bear, and the twisted sect came upon us. Being tht hat that we weere were member,s , it didn't spr surps surprise us. Well, I mean, of course. Of corus corus course . We were probb probb probo probably meeting. Yes, that was it, e we were meeting.
"My god!" I cried, "What a calumny! That poor bear!" "What bear?" said my brother , oh okay, so he was my brother, . "I don't see any bera bear." "Indeede?" I said, "You don't see that bear bleeding in fron t ofy your efyeyes?" "I don't have the clearance," said my brother, "You're the one who got the MultiVision glasses from the cult leader! You can see through the shadows!" the multivision glasses were hanging inmy robe, safely tucked away. there could only be one other thing that was causing this. Our cult leader wasa shaf shape shifter wasn't he?
OH MY GOD WHAT IS WITH ME AND THE SHAPE SHIFTER S LATELY COME ON BRAIN THINK OF SOMETHING MORE CREATVIVE!
I wsih wish I had layered htat in at the beginning2! That would make a lot more sense. Okay, so the cult leader is bleeding on the ground , in the sapsh shape of a bear. Why can only the main character see him? Because he's not wearing the glasses...
Becasue it must mean that maybe the others can see him too, unless they're pretending, but why?
318. Not bad.
