Begone Caps Lock and Other Great Keyboard Hacks

"The placement of the caps lock key is a demonstration of
malicious cunning. It's above the shift key and it's usually
oversized, so it's way too easy to hit it when you don't want to,
which for me is all the time. On a case-sensitive operating system
it's not all that useful anyway. Unhappy users often resort to
remedies like prying it off entirely or covering it with duct tape.
You can do this if you're careful, but elite geeks resort to more
sophisticated measures that do not mangle their nice keyboards.
It's not the fault of the keyboards that manufacturers have giant
Windows-sized blind spots, and as always, Linux makes lemonade out
of lemons and provides useful alternatives."
