Safe deposit boxes aren't expensive and they're not a bad offsite location to store copies of you data on external hard drives. I don't really like using hard disks for long-term archiving but it's one of the lowest cost practical solutions. A tape drive would be something to look into but they're not cheap.

When I started getting wrist pain from typing I learned to type on the dvorak layout. Your problem is probably less with the keyboard itself and more with what you're doing on it.
I also use a Model-M IBM at work and don't really care how noisy it is.. they're the greatest keyboards ever produced.

UNIX is many things to many people, but it's never been everything to anybody.
