1 Maybe we can get a cheap-as-chips Chinee contracter to haul our meat into space.  Course, the might end up doing a bit worse than17 deaths in 53 years doing it, but maybe it's worth the cost to get into space, honestly. This is all assuming the Lord Jesus Christ doesn't arrive suddenly in his full power, glory, and majesty and moot the whole scheme in the meantime.

3 So, which of those lenovos has dedicated pgup/pgdn keys?  I mean, you can get by with g/G if your application supports that sort of syntax (hint: most degenerate applications don't)  for home/end, but most of the basic unix pager/editor jumping commands are simply unknown (and clobbered) in most (degenerate) applications.

4 Lenovo is pretty good on providing those keys, but not always in my preferred layout.  They usually have PgUp/PgDn above the arrow keys and Home/End next to the function keys.

5 Here's an example of one of their 14" models.  I prefer them in a vertical strip to the right of the main layout, but this is better than nothing.

6 That's basically the keylayout on the e495 I bought for my wife.  I mean, I'm not a fan of it, but it's better than no pgup/pgdn.
Also, I hate that clit in the middle, what an annoyance!

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
