You've worked hard to get to this point, so as a reward I wrote you a little ragtime piece, appropriately entitled The Typewriter Rag.

I put together a little animation to go with it, showing off some of the elegant manual typewriters of the late-19th to the mid-20th centuries. They're beautiful machines, but the users who had to constantly unjam keys, get red & black ink all over themselves changing the ribbon, and type entire pages over when they made too many mistakes probably didn't think so at the time!

Enjoy, and congratulations for mastering all of the letters on the keyboard!
