Typing Heaven

For my first Father’s Day (woohoo!) I received a SpaceSaver keyboard from pckeyboard.com. It’s essentially an old school Model M with a few modernizations:

I’ve considered buying a used Model M in the past, but was put off by the amount of desk space it eats up and its lack of a Super modifier key (which is useful for all kinds of shortcuts).

The only thing I would change about the SpaceSaver — and this is fairly minor — would be to add volume control keys above the number pad like on the recently deprecated Apple keyboard. Another idea I have brainstormed, but haven’t though through completely, is to move/add a modifier key next to the number pad, ideally around the bottom left so that you can easily run two-key shortcuts with your right hand (thumb + index/middle/ring fingers).
