Hi Corax; cool, major in philosophy, eh?

Here's my advice as a relatively recent university philosophy grad, take a course in existentialism, a senior-level logic course or two, and an eastern or non-Western philosophy course; and minor or dbl major in a "profitable" discipline (business, computer science, engineering, etc!) You can't lose!

@Victor Eremita,
Welcome Corax!

Sorry to hear about the broken v key thing. I too have an above normal anger towards the v key... and at times it gets pretty bad. Just look at that v-key... just sitting there all lazy like when the majority of the work is done by the rest of the alphabet. V key... you get a job.

But I choose to ignore the v-key or substitute it. For example. Instead of Violin, I say Uiolin, or \/iolin (double slash mark)... or go in a completely different road and say "classy banjo" or "midget cello"

But still... that doesn't explain where the other V's went to. Sir... you have been reported. LOL!

Enjoy the forum!

Congratulations on your choice of a major. I never regretted majoring in Philosophy because it allowed me to wander through almost any other subject with ease when selecting a minor, and I could always drop a name or two at any faculty-student party.
You can get a simple Logitech keyboard for around twenty dollars and be done with the V problem (have you tried removing the pad and cleaning under the key?)
