He's modded Funny, but he has a point.
Escape -- because Alt+* is often grabbed before it gets to Emacs, I have to use Escape for Meta (so, yeah, Emacs user here). Plus it closes dialogs.
Caps Lock -- because I don't run Windows and don't have to rely on Word's autocorrect to enter uppercase letters with accents. My locale requires uppercase letters to retain their accents. CapsLock+é gives me "É" while Shift+é would give me "2".
Windows Key -- what, you never use Super on any keybinding ?
Scroll Lock -- console, 'nuff said.
That key that opens the context menu -- it opens the main Sawfish menu for me.
F-Lock -- I don't know what that is. Function-lock, for laptops ? I wish mine had that. Can't get used to hjkl for moving around in NetHack.
Pause/Break -- Free custom keybinding, hooray !
One of the Media keys -- I don't have a lot of those. Home, Eject, Previous, Stop, Play/Pause, Next, and volume control are all used (though Stop is bound to "show me what is playing right now".
So I guess I'd say Pause is the *least useful* after all.
Insert. The only thing I've ever done with Insert is disable it.
"The problem with racial profiling isn't when the people are actually criminals, it's when they're not. It's unjust for innocent people to be subjected to extra scrutiny just because people like them are acting badly."
This is one of the most simple, yet profound explanations of why profiling is a bad thing.
Now, if we can get the rest of our people to start acting right, maybe this profiling stuff will end....
I agree about Sunshine. However, If Danny Boyle hadn't turned it into a "slasher-flick in space" near the end it would have been much much better. The frequent camera flashes and other nonsense kind of messed it up for me. But overall it was a very good sci-fi film.
Moon was spectacular, (Sam Rockwell....well, rocks
