Okay, it's been a month now.
Here is the graph of my progress in the first month. I'm guessing that I won't become noteworthy quicker than I currently am in the next couple of weeks so I guess this is the end of my progress log. I hope it's been usefull for some of you and that I convinced some visitors who came here by random change just like me to do the switch as well. Because really, what's the worst that could happen..?
I thought it was quite fun to learn a new layout in general. Of course it can be frustrating at times, but making the mental switch was kind of fun. I didn't type a lot in the last period. I've worked 60 hour weeks for the last 6 weeks and never used a PC in the place where I work so the only practice I had was after work. It is enough though. I'm pretty certain that even if you practice 10 hours a day progress won't be much quicker because it is mainly about the mental switch.
In the end I didn't change the layout and the J is still in it's normal position. I learned to live with it and it will have to do. The only thing which I still have to force myself to learn though is to use the capslock button as backspace as well.
Oh yeah and for whoever is interested my qwerty speed is between 55 and 60 WPM now while hunting and pecking a bit. Decent enough not to feel ashamed when typing on other people's computers which I barely ever do anyways.
It's been fun, thanks for the support and advice!
