    I opened this thinking it might be about Symphony 9 or something...

    I totally forget about that keyboard thing

    Having never really heard about that before, it kind of seems like they're reinventing the wheel...

    Is it a relative to Sibelius - the music scoring software?

    Here I was thinking that John Dvorak the PC Mag guy had come out saying that Foderas look "girly"* or something. :eek:

    * is a reference to his comments about the original "toilet seat" iBook.

    did you get a screwdriver out and pop off all the keys on your keyboard and put them back in Dvorak style? that could help.

    que? i dunno what that is ;-/
     
  15. Dvorak is interesting but I doubt it could improve on my typing speed...not least because it's taken me 10 years to get here!

    Ooooo....someone's copying my threads! w00t!

    I liked Dvorak, but went back to QWERTY, didn't have the time to learn it.
