НЕТ! ДЕНЬ ЗАГЛАВНЫХ БУКОВ!

WE MAY NEED TO GET USED TO THIS IF THE RIAA'S DMCA LAWSUIT MAKES THE SHIFT KEY ILLEGAL!

Arg, I don't have a functional caps lock key anymore. I got sick of never using it so I made it an Escape key... for when I'm in vi. Or sometimes I map it to another key like mod3 and use it to control window operations from the keyboard.

.Xmodmap
Code:
clear lock
keycode 0x42 = Escape
{frob23 presses furiously at his caps lock key but nothing happens.}
