Is your keyboard intact?
The one for your computer, that is.

Because a neighbor was just over, and noticed two buttons on my keyboard are missing.
I deliberately removed the two, "caps lock" and "insert" because of my "fat finger sydrome." :-)

1. Yes, and with all the keyboards...

have always brought this 'sidekick' along...

3. This is absolutely WEIRD!
those are the only 2 keys missing from my keyboard

accidentally used that caps lock key one too many times

I don't even remember removing the insert key, but I guess I must have, because I just noticed it's gone too

4. Semi-intact, so far
The shift key and a couple others are a bit beaked up and hard to use, and the cord is partially stripped.

5. All intact here.
Though I definitely understand you wanting to remove "Caps Lock" and "Ins" - the number of times that I've hit those by accident.

6. i just got a new one
after killing many keyboards via sharing large cups of coffee and soda drinks with them, I got a waterproof folding keyboard. It's hard to type on, tho, because it leaves out some of the letters I type. Takes a little getting used to, I guess.

How can a keyboard be untouched?

10. Nope, I'm missing my 3/# key
Plus my Print Screen key doesn't work. (What's worse is this is a fairly new keyboard, haha.)

11. When I used to play descent
I ripped out the "windows" key because my finger would hit it while gaming and bring me back to the desktop. But I don't game anymore, so all my keys are intact.
