Both my wrists are broken so I'm having to use my nose on the mouse button and look at the screen sideways

2789 -- (sorry Max) -- maybe you should try it with your speakers on, maybe you'll find the puttering soothing and help you concentrate ??

Hi Gregg Bolinger that's a great score. Is there a secret technique - or is it just very steady attention?
