Webwit uses Colemak, Hoggy uses Dvorak, and I just look at my Datahand box occasionally. I forgot if I asked Webwit if he thinks the layout change makes much of a difference with Datahand.
There was a guy that posted on GH a few times that claimed to be so old school Datahand tester, and he filed off the landing pads for the down stroke on Datahand. I forgot the layout he used, it starts with a "B" and it uses more keystrokes on the bottom row, which he said works better with Datahand because of it's design.

The greatest value for me is in the marathon running comfort; it makes it possible to work as long as I need to without any stresses. Twelve hours of work or more are common.

Does this mean that a refurb just sold for 1750? How expensive can these get?
I have never used eBay before. How do I get paid? Do we have to ship first?
