oh, gnomexp, i see. I like that layout too, now :P. I like the lack of words on the Shift, Caps, and Enter Keys :D

You're skirting the issue.

@alchemist61:That is a GREAT setup there. Nice!

I'm going to have to get me one of those British keyboards.

british keyboards are the best, simply because we invented the language and the alphabet, and everything else :)

also, there is no way in hell you can miss the enter key, i still don't understand why american keyboards have an enter key like the shift key...

You have a valid point. I'm half British, and I watch a lot of English TV shows, which means I pick up a lot of their sayings. When anyone asks me if that's "proper English", I always respond by telling them that, since the English invented the language, it must be correct :P

I'm thinking about getting a relative or a friend to send me one of the wireless keyboards. Dunno how that's going to work, though.

with the mbp? The camera from that, from my experiences, takes much higher shots and at larger sizes. Still, I'm not going to say you are lying until you say that you are.

That also doesn't look like a cinema display, it's not wide enough (the icons are normal sized, but the monitor as a whole is a fullscreen resolution.

if you're running on 1024x768 on a widescreen display, the pixels will get stretched out to display the framebuffer on the whole display of your screen. In other words, if it was true what you said, your screen should appear to be stretched in the photo.

Some people seem to forget that ALL Macbooks come with iSight. Makes you wonder..do they even do proper research before buying stuff? And the same people seem to wonder if an iSight can be used as a webcam..

Anyways, here's a pilot's eye view...Look Ma! No wires! (well..almost)
