      VERY nice. Thank you Benjamin!

      I tried it on my laptop and it worked very well. It's a little awkward,
      and before my injury I would have preferred the Esc key, but given the
      situation, jk is an excellent choice. I might later change it to jj or
      kk or kl or something, to see if they're ergonomically better, but even
      though I'm not used to it, jk is very nice.

      Thank you!
