signs of excessive use

This keyboard was not yet two years old, and I had worn
off a bunch of key labels using all the time. My dad tried
to use it the other day and freaked out trying to look
at the keys. "Wait, where's the M key? You type on it
instead." Worn-away count: E, C, S, G, M, N, K, L.
B and D were on the brink.

It got sent home to IBM, as I had spilled coffee in it
last week, and returned all new and shiny. Also seems to
be more clicky than the last one.

Time to see how long the letters last on the new one.

music: Claude Debussy: Prelude, Pour le piano

But you've never shattered an 'enter' key with your jack-hammer-enter-key-pressing technique? ;)

Nope!

It is a little quieter now that I use laptop keyboard nearly exclusively.

What, H and J were just fine?
You spend more time going down and to the right?
