And I learned a great deal, despite your rather condescending tone
throughout the post. And as I said before, I severely apologize for
annoying you to the point of having to school me. It's obvious that my
ignorance bothers you, and not only must you enlighten me, which I was
ready for, but you even managed to slip in your disgust at my ignorance
when you answered my question, which is even more than what I asked for.
What a bargain!

When someone tries to teach you something while treating you like an
idiot, it's hard for the knowledge to sink in. But rest assured, your
addressing of the Dvorak/German thing was completely accepted and I'm glad
to have read it, so maybe next time, my education won't seem as pathetic
to you as it did this time.
