Hmm I have:

[SPACE] [RT ALT] [WIN*] [MENU**] [RT CTRL]

*the right-side version of the infamous 'Windows' key or otherwise know
as: "f***! I touched you and now I've bombed out of my game" key.

**Windows Menu key, another virtually useless key the opens a window's
menu, but your never know which one, sometimes it is the edit menu
sometimes the view menu. I rather use ALT+E or ALT+V and know what I am
getting!

Interesting. I've never seen a laptop with a keypad, but mine certainly
has enough space on it! I think part of the problem would be that the
keyboard wouldn't be centered to the screen, which could be a potential
cause of RSI.

That could be the reason, yes

For the past two years my keyboard hasn't been centered to the monitor
here (my desk just isn't big enough), and I never had any rsi
symptoms. As I'm typing this, I'm sitting directly facing the monitor,
while my hands are typing slightly to the right. Actually, the A on my
keyboard is centered to the screen. I could move it slightly to the
left and have the F in the center, but then my Tea would fall of the
desk...
I think RSI has more to do with staying in the exact same position for
a long time than with all these ergonomic chairs, desk heights, mouse
mats and keyboard vs screen position. Not for nothing it's called
Repetitive Strain Injury. Nothing repetitive if you keep moving
around.

So.. how about you try it out - set your keyboard to US and see if it
still works <g>

Hah! I was going to type "Adrienne" first but figured it more likely
spelled "Adrian".

Contrary to popular belief, it is believable.

Heh. This OS is too fragile to go mucking about with settings

That's why I thought I'd ask you instead of testing it myself <g>

Last night I watched The Specialist, also with Stallone.
Sharon Stone played the lead female character, a woman called Adrian
Hastings.

(having written the above, I checked on IMDB.com and guess what: Rocky's
wife is called Adrian)
