Talk about rabit holes, just switched to a glove80 split ergonomic
keyboard. Spent the last 2 days programming the firmware to get the
layouts correct. Really like the feel of it, but it is taking a bit of
re-learning muscle memory to get use to it. Really like the 'homekey
mode', which lets you enter modifiers like shift, ctl, alt and super by
holding down a key in the home row.

Probably going to take a while before I find the right layout for typing
symbols etc to make programming easier. Although I don't habe the
misfortune to suffer from RSI etc, I can see how anyone who does would
benefit from this keyboard. After long hours of coding, I can get a
stiff back and neck. Finding things much better with this keyboard and I
expect after some pravtice I will also be a lot faster typing.
