Which, as everyone here knows, is simply a pro forma statement, a prelude to the follow-up, "But yes, of course, I'll buy it."

I'm still thinking about it. I happened to be nearer the OP's home than my own for some of the weekend, so I visited to have a twiddle before heading home later. The big question is how much use I would make of it. Having three home keys rather than the usual two is marvellous of course, but it doesn't have some of the buttons for alternative fingerings that I have become very accustomed to on the standard 40-key Wheatstone layout. If someone else would like to give it a good home I will not stand in their way.
