My hinkPadhas aproblem with i's keyboard.

I just bought a used Thinkpad T61 and the e,t, and space bar keys work intermittently. The keyboard is reasonably clean and nothing is obstructing the keycaps underneath. I have taken out the keyboard and reseated the keyboard connector. Is this just a bad keyboard or should i be worried about something else? (os is linux/ubuntu)

How do people typing these days?

How do most people type here ? (And on the internet in general?) Are most people touch-typers? Do people get trained at school these days? I use about three fingers on each hand but am pretty fast nevertheless. I have seen a lot of "bashers" and "peckers" in my time. I am just wondering what the "norm" is these days.

How do I learn piano fingering?

I've been trying Pro Keyboard mode in Rock Band 3 and I'm really enjoying it, however I have no idea whether I'm putting the right fingers on the right keys! The training modes explain it a little but there's no guidance in the actual songs. Is there an online resource or book that will teach me the basics of this?

Why does changing my keyboard layout in Windows change my editing language in Word?

I often write in several languages (French, Dutch, and English) and so I use multiple keyboard layouts (on Windows 7) and multiple editing languages (in Microsoft Office 2007). I find that when I have Word open and I change the keyboard setting in Windows (from US to US-International or vice-versa), Microsoft Word will change the editing language back to English (United States), Word's default language, no matter what other language (Dutch or French) I was working in at the time.

Wireless mechanical keyboard?

I recently bought a SteelSeries 7g and I just love it. My only gripe is that it's wired... I've looked around on the net for a wireless mechanical keyboard (ie. one with clicky keys) but no luck. Does anyone know of something like this, whether bluetooth or RF-linked? Otherwise, would it be possible/feasible to mod my 7g with the components from a wireless or BT keyboard?

MS Word changed " to «, how do I reset?

Blackberry Bold Keyboard Quirky Problem - Any Advice?

I just bought a Blackberry Bold 9700, and unlocked it (so there's no warranty). I have used it for about a month or 6 weeks, and following a trip to the beach where it did not get wet, the buttons are not responding properly. Example: the keyguard button on the top left of the phone locks keys but won't unlock keys. The End Call / Power button ends calls and turns off the phone, but won't turn it on. All the keys work but pushing two buttons at once cancels both requests. I've re-installed the software (I think) and left it in rice overnight and both did not help, except for an hour or so when it randomly started working and then stopped again. Do you have any ideas what's wrong with it, and if I am able to fix it myself? (I have a T5 screwdriver if I need to crack it open). Thanks in advance! :)
