    A pangram is a sentence that contains all letters of the alphabet and this is the most popular one.

    Some other pangrams I remember are:

    The five boxing wizards jump quickly
    How quickly daft jumping zebras vex
    Sphinx of black quartz judge my vow
    Six of the women quietly gave back prizes to the judge
    Sympathizing would fix Quaker objectives

    Yeah, I can type without looking at the keyboard, but to type a panagram, it's hard because although my finger positions are correct but my typing isn't. So the unoften used characters, I'd miss them often.

    I never learnt touch-typing, I type with both index and middle fingers only, and occasionally my thumb. One day I discovered that I did not need to look at the keyboard while typing. I could also take pictures without looking through the viewfinder, drive without looking at the road, read clubsnap without looking at any pictures, and type sms'es without looking at the letters on the keypad.

    All it takes is practice.

    But I still hate using sms.

    well-done! i have been typing my comments and postings in CS without looking at the keyboard...

    hmmm this has always been my favourite phrase when i test out the sensitivity of the keyboard: the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog

    another favourite poll would be: Are you a keyboard person or are you a mouse person :P

    that because those words are easyor simple, if you are ralking about technolofies terms, most might not undetstand. for example :

    1: link-starte advertisement
    2: autonomois system boundarty router.
    3: partisl system nimber
    4: calculatiojn of defree preference phase
    5: redistrubuting routes in BGP
    6; toute aggrestion.

    now, you got any ideas what I am taling about?
