   /both/ the shift keys, or /both/ the alt or control keys.

The only computer game that I ever thought worth playing is gtypist.

And, a little extreme, but once you go from hunt-and-peck to 60 wpm
touch typing, you may not think so: as input devices go, hunt-and-peck
on a keyboard is like kicking a mouse around with your foot.
