abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz took about 10 seconds.

I would say if you can't type a-z without looking at your hands you should pretty much get an auto fail for keyboard class.

Took a few tries though since I frequently hit more than one key when typing either: C, V, U, and Y

That was terrible!
I blame the keyboard not my lack of ability.

Is it wrong i also forgot the alphabet towards the end?
