I've had a couple "60%" keyboards that eliminate the function row, and everything to the right of the backspace key, instead using key combos for the missing keys is too much work/ I'm lazy and don't want to build the muscle memory to use the missing keys. I also like having arrow keys, along with a number pad, but I don't want the full on 100% layout, so a 92ish% percent with 96 keys instead of 104, that has every key right up against each other is ideal.

Course went well, but I still have my theory test coming up. Too bad they changed the test format recently, and its Computer Based Testing now, with I believe 100 questions, and 150 minutes to complete. All questions are multiple choice, which means one point per question, and no partial marks for at least showing your math.
Oh, my, I reckon we have come a long way with keyboards. schwat .. schwat schwat ......

Ah, yes, multiple choice test questions.

Toss two choices aside because they are outlandish.

Do some thinking/calculations ...... finding out that both of the remaining two are close ....... so, go with your gut ...... pick one ....... NEVER go back and change your choice.

Reminds me of back in the Army days, the Army sent me to some sort of school. My fellow classmate and I decided that we were bored with military tests. So on the next multiple choice test we challenged each other on who could make the highest score ......... without reading the questions..

Ol Spike won, he got an 82 and I got a 79 ......

I have the shitty OEM Subaru system in the car. I don't use it, don't look at it, I hate it but can't justify the extra cost of upgrading! Perhaps one day if my commutes get longer..

Reminds me of a funny story. A friend and his friend were visiting me, my friend checking out my new computer, his friend tells me that 'his brother has just got himself a new computer '. I ask 'what type?' he says 'a white one'.

I feel boring today. Hopefully I can bring the funny later this afternoon.
