I was bored in a meeting yesterday so decided to try and memorise them all. Turned out to be not as hard as I thought.

You’ve got qwerty at the top, so that was an easy start. Then I had to just memorise uiop, which in my mind made me think of pancakes so that’s how I remember it.

Then on the middle one asdf was easy enough as those are those videos, then came the hardest bit to remember ghjkl which I just remembered as a ghost (gh) then just carry on with the alphabet, but don’t use the i because you used that already.

Then, it was none other than board member @1000YearBanFFS who helped me remember zxcbvnm. ZX spectrum, curriculum vitae, best new music.

How well do you think you’d do?

By heart. I had a football game on my Amiga 500 that had really long loading screens, so I used to sing the keyboard letters in order along with the loading music. I did it so frequently that it’s still burned into my brain, 25 years later.

I was a lonely child.
