My Preferred Typing Test:
Webster’s Secretarial Handbook 2nd Ed. (1981) - Ch. 5: Sec. 5.1: 1st Paragraph
A revolution in typewriting began in the 1930's with the availability of the Autotypist, a technological advancement which assisted the secretary in the production of routine form letters. The revolution manifested itself more dramatically in the mid 1960s when the International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) introduced the Magnetic Tape Selectric Typewriter (MT/ST) - a typewriter coupled with recording media in the form of magnetic tape to facilitate the editing and correcting of copy, the storing and retrieving of information, and the overall increase of typewriting productivity, efficiency, and quality. The decade of the 1970s brought still further advancements and a large increase in the number of office equipment companies that manufacture devices to increase productivity at the secretarial work station. The 1980s have brought the computer into the secretarial arena: video display units whose function is the electronic display of typewritten material stored in a computer have in many offices become critical tools for secretarial, administrative, and data processing tasks.

Chiaki Oogaki's Blurbs

About me:

I'm Aki, a 28-year-old trans girl proudly hailing from the American Midwest and possessing an INFJ-T personality. Fair warning, once you become my close friend, you won't be able to get rid of me! (Not that you'd want to hopefully...)

I've spent a lifetime online for my age! With my oldest accounts dating to 2002, I've been staring at screens long enough to remember IRC, AIM, and MySpace when it actually looked like this. I used to be very active on social media, but after I let popularity overtake me, a long hiatus brought me to smaller tight-knit sites like this.
Weird, it's almost like that's how the Internet is supposed to be used...

I've been quite the weeb since 2010, mainly watching slice-of-life shows that make me smile. I also love machine sewing, collecting records and tapes, and playing Minecraft for that creative outlet in me. A long-term hobby has been retro and vintage tech. Whether it's typewriters to radios to computers, I enjoy it all.

I plan to frequent this site when I'm not at work or busy with personal projects. I miss the friendships I had back in junior high and high school. It's much harder to make and keep friends at my age, so hopefully being here helps me get back to those days of online friends long ago.

Who I'd like to meet:

Anyone who shares the same hobbies or interests!

The biggest lack of friends in my life is LGBTQ+ friends, especially trans friends. I'm new into my MTF journey and don't really have people to get advice from.

I prefer to have friends closer to my age, so I will exercise discretion when adding anyone younger than 17. I always check profiles for ages and pertinent info before adding. I also may opt not to add younger friends on chat platforms or respond to SpaceHey IMs from them. Don't feel bad if I decline your friend request or do not interact for this reason, as I'm looking out for the safety of all of us.

Places to Chat:

➤ SpaceHey IMs, Discord, or Matrix

I will be on here as much as I can, so please do engage my bulletins and blog posts! If we hit it off well, I'm open to in inviting you to DM on Matrix or Discord, where I'll respond much quicker than I do on here. Good friends only though!
