- And i always type the letter B with my *right* hand... Which is why i hate those "ergonomic" keyboards that split the keyboard into separate peices for the different hands; they force you to type B with the left hand because the right hand can't reach it anymore. -Stephen (Steg) "azoi-aole, yeli yu emze."
