Everyone does. It's physically impossible to do otherwise. That
doesn't excuse you from reviewing what you type to make sure it's

I type about 70 wps, my wife even faster. Speed has nothing to do
with accuracy; you should always proof what you write before you send
it. By your own logic, you should be a *better* typer, as you have
more time to think about what you type.

Don't use Word for programming. Use a text editor, not a word
processor. Better yet, use a programming editor, like emacs or vi.

DOS has *always* had binary mode. I recall using it in DOS 1.0. It's
the *only* mode the disk has; "text mode" is an abberation convened by
the applications themselves.

Why not? Go ahead. Nobody is stopping you. In fact, why not make
your job easier by starting with one of the existing IDEs, like DFE95?
