Deary me Scotty :) It's all true of course. I abhor RPG now, partly because
I've grown to hate things like Games Workshop (why anyone pays 5 for a
piece of metal shaped like a wizard is beyond me...).

But isn't it true that MOST computer geeks also prefer the shell to the
gooey? What is it about the mouse that is so un-natural? The keyboard just
seems so much better (mental note, must ask about keymaps someday).

Yes, keymaps. I want to learn Dvorak, preferably the proper layout, maybe
straying into left/right handed Dvorak if I ever happen to lose an arm...
Anyone know how I can get Linux to change keymaps at a keystroke? I want to
like hit Ctrl-Alt-Shift and immediately swap from Qwerty to Dvorak... Any
