I just bought a new keyboard. With all my writing and blogging, I seem to have worn off the lettering on the "m" and "n" and "," and "."
Does that mean I use these keys the most or does it means that I just hit them harder than the others? Maybe my keyboard was faulty - when they printed it originally, did they used a thinner application of paint on those keys?
Well, this might not be much of an issue for someone who does "touch-typing" but for a "look-at-the-keys" two-finger-typer like me, it presents some challenges.
So I go to the office supply store and select a new keyboard. I was looking for a wireless one anyway, but I don't seem to recall seeing any with the traditional cord. Has that gone the way of technology also?
Anyway, I try several keyboards and pick the one I like. I take it back to my office and install it. Then it dawns on me. Some of the keys aren't in the same place. Oh not the lettered and numbered keys - the ones that really matter like "end," "home," and "delete." Can't tell you how many mistakes and re-dos I've had. Hopefully the muscle memory learning curve won't take too long to master.
