Random thoughts, piped through my terminal to the internet.
Of Keyboard Maps and あおえう
I picked up a new keyboard today. After searching around for a while, I determined that there are no US layout keyboards in my price range in Japan. So, I picked up a manly pink keyboard, instead.
A pink keyboard. Manly pink.
The layout, not surprisingly, is a JP-106 key. Unfortunately, I didn't have a handy layout for Dvorak on a JP-106 (not to be confused with Japanese Dvorak), so I did a little searching and found exactly what I wanted on the intartubes: Dvorak JP-106 Layout. This is especially awesome because there are layouts for both X and the Linux console.
There's only one change that I would make, and that's to make the key to the right of "A" another Control, like God intended.
