I bought myself a new computer keyboard last week to replace the 11-year-old Logitech G11 gaming keyboard that has served me so well. The replacement is a Logitech G19:

Logitech has stopped making them, and the replacements are not only not very nice, but really expensive. So I bought a G19 online from a site still selling them.

It's got a nice soft feel to the keys. The LCD screen can show a variety of things, but I'm using it as a clock. There are 12 programmable keys; I have programmed them to do things like Cut/Copy/Paste/Undo, and to insert text strings like my name or email address(es), all for convenience. The G19 acts as a USB hub too; it has two powered USB 2.0 ports. The keys are backlit, and the colour is configurable. It has big enter and backspace keys, just like I like them.

All in all, damn nice. Let's hope it lasts a decade, like its predecessor.

Cool - the benefit of being somewhere fixed!
Not that I move around any more, but shaking the habits is harder than you'd think.

I do. It allows work and entertainment in most parts of the house - or, for that matter, working out of the house. I have to do something with the odd hours The Cub spends at Rainbow Scouts/Zumba/Gymnastics/etc., so into the pack it goes and off we go.

Nice Keyboard. Thanks for showing it. Programmable keys look appealing. I've had the one in the office for over 10 years. When it goes up I will have to find something similar or better.
