It's good to stay busy. I relate to the speed when being away from the keyboard. I get too computer keyboardized and loose my good typing rhythm when I return to a manual typewriter.79 w.p.m. is a good speed, especially for not fully touch typing. At that speed I doubt you'd have much trouble using a typing book teaching yourself to touch type at even higher speed.I look forard to seeing your project.
Oooh, project? Well, I can make a guess that it's a thing I've heard of. If so, bravo! I was curious how that was going. (:
