I thought i’d mention how interesting it is trying to type messages without access to the ‘z’ key. I’m using a toshiba laptop right now that’s missing it. It’s not a common character so it’s not too tought to avoid using it. But it is rather interesting how it will come up when least expected and how you have to work around words. How have i been typing that letter so far (notice how i didn’t actually use it)? Good old character map. It’s only about 1000 times less efficient than actually typing.
Sigh… AIM made me start abbreviating everything. Word made me forget how to spell. Now toshiba is making me cut out letters from the alphabet. Any time now I’m just going to end up with newspeak being the only language I know.
