Editorial This article describes some of my annoyances in computing. If you had any problems reading this article, then skip this one. It will only be a waste of your time. There are a lot of annoying things in the wonderful world of computing. Of course, nothing is perfect, but that doesn't mean we are not allowed to complain and scream and throw our keyboards at our monitors when yet another irritation pops up.

The frickin' keypad
by Pete Leong on Mon 12th Jul 2004 12:54 UTC

What a waste of space....

I work on a computer all day and because of my recent back problems, that extra distance you have to reach (to the mouse) past the keypad complicates things. I've taken to using my left hand instead.

Did you know you can use a single keyboard gel pad when using this technique? (no separate mouse gel pad required) And there is cut,copy,paste on the right hand too!

Alternatively, I'm still looking for a descent laptop style keyboard. Got any suggestions?
