So, if you have a typing/keyboard related joke, type it in. Let's share some silly summer joy!

Today this came to me:
– Is capital punishment acceptable for misuse of the CapsLock key?
– In some cases.

:-p

Did you hear about the new keyboard-themed pub?

It's called The Space Bar.

Just made that up, you're welcome.

Haha, Jon. I had already heard it in a variant: "Where do astronauts hang out?"

If there really were a keyboard-themed pub called The Space Bar, I'd love to hang out there. Unless it were all QWERTY and stuff...

Pickup lines in that bar might get weird: "Hey miss, would you like to see my mods?" :-þ

Also, there's this oldie from another post:

There's these old ones, to reCap a little: :-)
The Push My Buttons Gurl (since it is said that having a Topre board is like "typing on a cloud of boobs"...)
Dopplermak (weird DreymaR visual jokes that not everyone will understand)
Board Wars (not a joke per se, but if you still think it's funny then the typing force is with you)

Nobody seemed to get the first time that this one is the Doppler Effect (you know – red shift and blue shift? ... well, maybe you don't...)!

That time, I felt a bit like Sheldon in The Big Bang Theory. ;-)

But, as they say:

Okay, here's a new contribution for all of you who escaped the control of habit:

The original was a t-shirt design from QWERTEE (that cool webshop with the evil name). :-)

I'm so hopeless. There is no escape and I've completely lost control. I can't get a pause or break anymore. There is no end in sight. A shift at this point is completely out of the question. I've even lost my home.

... Guess it's time for a new keyboard.

Lol, NottNott! That is so brilliant.

Situationally, I guess AOE is really good but if you know the Art Of WARS then nothing can stand against you...!

Q: What do you get when you cross a computer with an elephant?
A: Lots of memory!

A variation on an old favorite (additions in bold):


Here's an easy game to play.
Here's an easy thing to say:

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
And the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
And the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
Then the socket packet pocket has an error to report!

If the layout of your keyboard only leads to RSI,
And the random soup of letters is offensive to the eye,
And composing 60 pages always makes you wanna cry,
Toss that rubbish out the closest window, see if it'll fly!

If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
And the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
And your data is corrupted 'cause the index doesn't hash,
Then your situation's hopeless, and your system's gonna crash!

You can't say this?
What a shame sir!
We'll find you
Another game sir.

If the label on the cable on the table at your house,
Says the network is connected to the button on your mouse,
But your packets want to tunnel on another protocol,
That's repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall,

And your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss
So your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse,
Then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang,
'Cause as sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang!

When the copy of your floppy's getting sloppy on the disk,
And the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risc,
Then you have to flash your memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM.
Quickly turn off the computer and be sure to tell your mom!

Bwahaha. :) There's another idea - there could be a raven logo for CAW one of these days...

To the GIMP!

Okay, today's joke is a practical one. Try out what happens if you set a PKL Extend mapping to:

Not sure that bit about Dvorak Stacys is funny though? I'd replace it with something about stamina and speed.

[edit:] You already mentioned speed below, so just stamina then. "With ergonomics, can keep going forever." or "presses all the right buttons, for much longer".

Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!

On the flipside, the layout you should be using now for oddness points is probably based on a perfect pangram such as:
Quartz/glyph-job;vex’d,[cwm]finks.\ (The act of carving symbols into quartz, irritated ruffians from a Welsh river valley.)

Please make that happen. ;-)
