How does life get better? One tiny hack at a time.

I use a HP netbook, on the bus mostly, for bashing out furious code while crammed between passengers (much like this guy). It's a nice little 'puter.

One minor grievance is that with the keys all cramped together, it's hard to find the F5 key without looking. For many reasons, (Refresh, compile & run, execute...) F5 is a BIG DEAL.

So, to give it some tactile presence, I put a tiny sticker, with a rough surface, over the F5 key.

Now I can find the key by touch, in an instant.

Porous tape on the F5 key.

I gift this hack unto thee. ;-)
