Ancient typing technique, originally brought to the shores of Japan by wandering Mongol spiritual leaders. Literally "spastic blind finger" Shodukon-ru employs a method of single minded attention to the keyboard. It is similar to western styled touch typing in that all the fingers are used. The key difference of shodukon-ru is that the practitioner allows both hands to wander freely back and forth across the keyboard and strikes each key with whatever finger is closest. Several cups of coffee aid the user in attaining the required dexterity. The shodukon-ru method allows for extremely fast typing for very brief periods of time. Unfortunately, because the method requires extreme attention be given to the keyboard the user cannot spare attention to the monitor for fear of risking finger injury. Spelling mistakes are frequent, true masters of shodukon-ru realize the shortcomings of their art and pump all typing through a spell checker.
