You can try this at home, kids.  If you're right handed, move the paddle
to the left side of the desk by your left hand and turn it around backward.
Rest your left hand on the paddle mechanism so your left thumb hits the
dit paddle, left index finger the dah paddle.  Write (or type) with your
right hand while sending with your left.  Your brain is already trained
"dit = thumb" and you'll be amazed at how easy it is.  Almost as easy as
pressing F1 all day.
