Home Row Hierarchy

I’m a fast typist and I’m pretty light on my fingers but I always hit the Enter key with authority.


You can type a lot of keys at the DOS prompt but they accomplish nothing without an Enter stroke.


The inverse is true, also. If you strike the Enter key with no prefix you’re presented with another prompt. One step down, no steps further.


Does the Enter key rule the others or are all keys of equal importance?

About Brian Damage:

Who is Brian really?
I live in Toronto, Canada, and work for an IT firm. That's about as much real-world info I'm comfortable divulging here. What you read on my blog is the real Brian, but, for the sake of freedom of speech, I feel most comfortable leaving a gulf between my cyberspace and meatspace personae.

Who is Brian at work?
My ridiculous job title is "Marketing Specialist" since I wear so many hats at work. I'm a technical writer, a specialist in enterprise search technologies, an electronic forms designer, a newsletter author, system administrator... but I'm in the Marketing department so for the time being I'm stuck with this inauspicious title.

Who is Brian at play?
