Note that this site requires ShockWave Flash (which I removed from my browser after problems), and it also appears to use JavaScript for visitor counting. Your choice whether to go or not. I can't check it out. I am assured that it will work with JavaScript disabled, though it does still require Flash. It is a neat idea, in any case, and should let you get a feel for the keyboard layout.
