MJ,
OK if it works for you. Your explanation makes me dizzy :)
August D (and his brother-in-law) in 1936 found a fix for something not broken. Much like VHS vs Beta, qwerty may not be the most efficient but won the war.

Here is an OT typing practice for you. My dear late mom once told me when I was trying to learn to type, that she once learned to practice typing using all of the keys on the keyboard with "Pack my box with five dozen jugs of liquor." In later years, while living with my brother's family, who has a more conservative bend, she claimed she said no such thing. :-)

Not sure how you did the remapping, but I can wholeheartedly recommend Karabiner for Mac users. I use it to remap modifier keys on my keyboards so that I get a consistent experience across every keyboard I use.

I also use it to disable the internal mac keyboard and mouse when an external keyboard is connected: useful to put my external keyboard on top of the internal one for a better typing experience.

"The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" Keyboard practice this side of the pond.

now if you have to use another keyboard you're lost!

[No, I don't believe so. I've been typing with four fingers and one thumb on QWERTY keyboards for 50 years...I don't think I'll suddenly lose my way around just because I learned a new way of typing on a new keyboard. Maybe if I manage to switch over completely, which is what I want, then the old way will become rusty. But I doubt it will be something I ever forget altogether. --Mike]
