    To be fair, when I first started to learn Dvorak, I did quite a lot of off-keyboard finger flexing.

    What I'm wanting to hear here, or perhaps inspire as an experiment, is for someone to learn [INSERT FAVOURITE LAYOUT HERE] without a keyboard!

    I do not accept any responsibility for any physical or mental trauma of hitting a piece of wood repeatedly with your digits.

    I did the same as a kid while I was saving for my first guitar.  Drew a fretboard on a piece of wood with rope strings, to practice chord fingerings. :-)
