CTRL your CAPSLOCK key for great good

One day in a fit of rage I pried both of those keys right off my keyboard. With two satisfying pops, I was free of those modes and I had a great conversation starter for a keyboard!
Over the years I learned to live with my CAPSLOCK key by turning it into another CTRL key, easily accessible from the home position. I experienced a wonderful increase in productivity and decrease in wrist strain.
Try it for a week. You'll never go back.
