Default learn to type fast

Ok, well this is kind of a wierd question, but here it goes.

I keep looking down at my keyboard, it is starting to irritate me, lol. I do typw somewhat fast, but i would like to be able to keep my head up while i type. What are some good programs out there to learn how to type? lol. This sounds like a 10 year old kid question.

Thanks, U-Toast

WHOA! 500 KB/sec. I would give my right arm for that. I am lucky to download at 500 bytes/sec because of where I live and these damn phone lines.

i dont really think any programs or anything teach u to type faster..its not worth paying for programs..i'd say it just comes from experience, i've been using computers since i was 4, i've been chatting for a few years and i use computers for 5 - 10 hours every day(on school days) and more than that on other days...its just experience, so in the last 11 years with 3 years of mandatory typing classes i've achieved a whopping 100 WPM(on the last test i took which was bout 2 months ago) with 94
% accuracy and i screw up more on tests than regular typing.

well, I have been around computers only 3 years. And my typing skill basically reached its peak last year, 60 wpm. Not getting any faster, even though I'm around the PC all day. Oh wel.
