When one of my co-workers tries to show me something on my computer, she normally has a difficult time of it. The reason being that my number lock key isn't normally on. See she goes to type in number using the number pad, and can't figure out why the number don't show up on screen. Whereas whenever I type numbers on my computer I always use the digits right on top of the numbers.
Out of curiosity, I've asked most of my other co-workers, and it seems I'm the only one that uses the actual number keys and not the number pad on the right. Even if I tried to use the number pad, I would have no idea what I was pressing. Instead I'd have to look at each key to make sure I'm touching the same one. I'm sure its the same if they were to try to use the numbers up top. So my questions is, which is the correct way to use a keyboard?
I seem to remember learning to type using Mario Typing, and you only go to move Mario if you typed the numbers on the top. It didn't count if you used the number pad. (And yes, I remember learning to type with Mario Typing. Some people had Mario on their Nintendo, but until I was in middle school and we bought a 64, it was only Mario typing for me.) Although it could have been I number had number lock on as a kid, and that's why I couldn't get Mario to stomp any mushrooms.
So my question to all of you out in blog land is, Which numbers on the keyboard do you use? And which do you think are the "correct" one to use. I'm guessing if you use the number pad, you probably think those are correct. But maybe there's some people who actually believe they're using the wrong numbers. Maybe I really am the only one who uses the number up top. (If so, why do they put them there!) But hopefully you'll let me know I'm completely normal and other people use those numbers too.
