    From my experience they are, and I really struggle to use the dam things.

    my problem is that I have yet to find a keyboard which suits my 2 finger typing style - ergonomic or otherwise.
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    I used one for years, but the last 2 years I've been a contractor I haven't bothered.

    Handy for stopping other people using your PC.

    ... and as for those car seat covers made of hard, uncomfortable beads, the mind boggles®

    You could invent the first two key keyboard:

    well it was directed at the keyboard people, but those who have those stupid car seat covers can be covered by this term also. Oh and the chav I saw riding his bike in leeds the other day. A car beeped him and he peddled like a b@stard to catch it but couldn't. Pi5s funny to watch though as the driver seemed to be slowing down to keep him chasing him and then speeding up when he got close.

    I usually find the same people also have a trackball, footrest, orthopaedic chair and just about any other 'special' equipment that they can squeeze out of the company on health and safety grounds whether they need it or not.

    They're also the same people who create some sort of weird macro that only they understand and then expect me to tell them what they have done wrong when it goes tits up.

    Seen one of those laser keyboards? I knew a Sys Admin who heroically froze a Production server when he plugged one in... hilarious, though not for him.
