Well, no delete? Hm. There is always a reason or two to run laptop
with external full sized keyboard, especially when one writes more
than few lines a day. No delete key would be another one to try one of
those cheapish few-bucks-a-piece usb keyboard from your nearest
computer shop - maybe just not a wireless one, their comfortableness
is ilusoric but security problem they introduce is not.

Now, a question. Do you have Escape key on your kb? Without Escape my
life would have been rather miserable so it is good to know such
