My next Ergonomic keyboard

Another great option, if you don't like ergos but do like matrix keyboards

And for "on the go"(this one has magnets so it can be one piece or split)


Also heard great things about, and want to try this one


https://www.geekinsider.com/buzz-surrounding-beeraider-keyboard/

I like that people are starting to realize that the reason a keyboard is made the way it traditionally is, due to a hold-over from typewriter days, when the keys had to be staggered to make it so that the hammers?(not sure if that's what they're called, the arm that had the letter, that struck the ribbon) didn't hit each other. Once you remove that requirement, it opens a word of possibilities. :)

I'm too stubborn to relearn typing, I'll stick to the old qwerty
Most of the ones I posted come in qwerty, and all are remappable to make a "modified qwerty" .. I have really small hands and have broken a bunch of fingers throughout my life. So, a staggered qwrerty keyboard is VERY tiring and some keys are a real stretch for me. That's why I like matrix(grid) style keyboards. But, once you get used to the keyboard itself, then you can try moving to a more efficient, personal layout. I didn't want to have to relearn either but, I'd relearn how to do most anything to prevent pain and fatigue. I type much faster on a smaller keyboard and don't have to take breaks nearly as often on an ergonomic keyboard. :)

I'm watching Colbert and some woman was served cleaning fluid in her latte. I guess she's going to sue and get money.
When that happened to me (at Dunkin Donuts), they said they were very sorry and gave me a free coffee.
I guess I should have sued......

She's going to sue, she may not get money. My real issue with the whole thing is, when did people stop looking at things before they ingested them? And is that someone else's fault? And was that the same time we started expecting minimum wage employees at a fast food joints to not make mistakes?

They gave me a plain bagel and blueberry coffee instead of a blueberry bagel and plain coffee once. That coffee tasted worse than poison. Maybe I should join her in a class action.
