it's time to come clean an admit that i have never taken
advantage of the option that lets you press [???], then press
other keys in order so the result is like pressing multiple
keys at once.
i have never made a big deal over having but one useful hand
simply because in my line as a hacker, one hand was enough.
programming at 95mph was never the goal. everybody on this
list has learned that forethought and planning beat typing
speed! ---still, when my shoulder began to dislocate in 1999,
typing thr number-shift keys [like '*', '&', '^', and the rest
became harder [*]. i'm ready to set up the multi-key stuff that's
built in to at least KDE.
appreciate a pointer to a url or tutorial on this... and/or
to know what this feature is even called. it's time to get
practical. i am stubborn, just not particular stupid. maybe
[*] and more painful, and awkward--so slower.
