My default typed greeting changed since I became a Dvorak typist

by

In 2007 I switched from QWERTY to Dvorak. I’m agnostic about which one is more efficient. I like Dvorak because I feel like I move my hands less. Also it’s great for the entertainment value (“What is wrong with your keyboard?”), and because it makes it that much harder for someone looking over my shoulder to guess my passwords.

Before I switched, my default greeting when chatting with someone was “hi.” It was two letters and it could be typed with one hand, which made it faster than “hello,” which required hand-switching.

Since I have converted to Dvorak, I noticed that my default typed greeting became “yo,” and I think it’s for the same reasons—in Dvorak, you can type “yo” with one hand, but you can’t type “hi” with one hand.

Just weird is all.
