yes, i seem to have misplaced it.  (wonder how i could've *ever*
completed Core Python and have it published huh?)  LOL

anyway, several years ago, back in the good ol' days of the .com
world, i used to work from 10a-3a every day... company would buy us
dinner of course, but during the course of these mad coding days, i
had really not done my back any service, and the problems became so
severe that i had to see a specialist, who advised me that i may be
pressing down on the keyboard too hard.

after introspection, it turns out that i overly-used the shift key
(not only pressing down on it too hard and holding down on it for too
long, but also in an unbalanced way).  since then i have stopped using
the shift key whenever possible and even switched to using the mouse
with my left hand, something not too easy to do, esp. since i didn't
want to swap the button configuration.

so apologies to those who are offending by my lack of capitalization,
but i'd rather be communicating to you in my limited capacity than to
be completely silent.
