So what the heck is a Pyfgcrl keyboard?
So where's the space bar?

Recently, I've been forcing my fingers to learn the Dvorak layout of a keyboard. It's been rather frustrating. I don't know why I've been putting myself through this. I heard somewhere that it was supposed to help relieve problems related to repetitive stress. At this point, I suspect I'll just be trading pain in one part of my hand for pain in another.

At any rate, I am actually reasonably proficient after about three months of using Dvorak at work (but - generally - not at home). I still look down most of the time, but my fingers are actually starting to remember, and occasionally I can get through half a sentence or line of code without looking down.

So remind me again what I was doing this for?
