      Speaking of left-handed code ("sinister CW"), I'm a lefty but use a
      right-handed V'plex Original with the just the knob/finger piece
      reversed so my left index finger is on the knob and my left thumb is on
      the paddle. I guess it never occurred to me that I was sending code in
      an opposite fashion than the crowd, i.e., my finger for the dits and
      thumb for the dahs. It's just how I learned and never gave it a second
      thought! You people really send dits with your thumbs? How odd . . .
