Changed the settings on my work laptop to German. Well, to “switchable to German”.
This means that I can now type öÖäÄüÜß as well as êôûâî áéíóúàèìòù and the associated capital letters directly, without switching to Word and doing a copy and paste.
It also means that the z and y keys on my pc are reversed. Which is confusing. And many other special characters are not where I expect.
We shall see how long I survive this. And how long until my kids notice that I wrote on mz kezboard. I mean, on my keyboard.
