cAPS lOCK kEY

I use the backspace key on my keyboard about a billion times a day.

I use the shift  key on my keyboard about 10 million times a day.

I use the tab key  on my keyboard about a million times a day.

I use the Caps Lock key about once a month.

Nevertheless I have an enormous Caps Lock key conveniently located right in the traffic lane between the tab and shift keys!

So what haPPENS IS THAT i'M CONSTANTLY SEEING THIS AS i TYPE.  oOPS.

 

My buddy came up with a solution -- take a screwdriver and pry off the annoying Caps Lock key.  i WILL IMPLEMENT THIS TODAY!!


Comments:

Interesting!

I wonder if it's time to redo the work-study
of the keyboard. I think this is because we
have a multi-window environment and usage of
"Tab" key has increased by leaps-and-bounds in
recent "computing".

Cheers!

two comments:
1) sysinternals has a great utility for fixing this in Windows: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/Miscellaneous/Ctrl2Cap.mspx

2) Sun makes a great UNIX-style keyboard with all the keys (incl. Ctrl) in the right place! :-)
