World First Review of Dell's 12.1in Netbook

Mental Maelstrom Keyboard layouts (133 comments)

Whats up with the obscure keyboards lately (those Dell laptops being an example)? Recently I find it difficult to find a laptop or keyboard with the keys placed on it the way i've used to. Often keys like the ones for <|> or underscore (estonian layout) might be absent or misplaced in some weird location (e.g. on top of or right of the return key). I once even had to buy a new keyboard, because my shell uses <, | and > for redirection.

Can anybody shed some light on this issue? Thanks.

PHP Gets Namespace Separators, With a Twist

AltGr + Plus [the key right of number 0] on Estonian layout also. This is so discriminatory! :P

We should use a character present on most keyboard layouts. I propose the use of the Space-key for this purpose.

Mental Maelstrom (1268890) writes "Hans Reiser, the creator of the ReiserFS file system, was found quilty of murder of his 31-year-old wife, Nina Reiser, around Labor Day (1st March) of 2006. Although her body was never found, the Oakland jury convicted Hans Reiser of first-degree murder, concluding that the slaying was deliberate and premeditated. When sentenced at a later date Reiser faces 25 years to life in prison."
