Maybe, but I got the same as you (except that I didn't mention the *
key, and I don't have that laptop at home right now so I can't have a
look right now), as you could read above. Maybe I could have described
it better, like:
789 → 789
uio → 456
jkl → 123
m → 0

My typing is more like hit and miss, but I type fast (not that it's
anywhere near the world record or something, but fast enough for me,
at least), but the most commonly pressed key for me is probably
Backspace… I usually feel when I hit the wrong key and almost hit
Backspace automatically right after, but sometimes I hit the wrong key
without noticing it until I re-read all the text I wrote.
