What I want is a keyboard/mousething that is in two pieces. I want
to hold my hands basically in my lap with my fingertips on each hand
pointing at the matching finger on the other hand. The keyboard/mousething
would go in between my hands.
I still haven't figured out how the mouse would work, though. I just
hate moving my hands from keyboard to mouse and back. It's terrible
on my back -- my upper back is shifted right.
Oh, and the keyboard on my vt510 (lk450) has a key in the upper right
labeled "Back space". In between the two words is the exact same
drawing as on the vt220/320's lk201. I'm such a packrat.
