Key remapping (or how I learned to stop worrying and love the home/end keys)

So the page up and page down keys on my laptop (see my review on the T430s) are next to the directional arrows. This was driving me insane, as I would accidentally hit them and then my view would jump to kingdom come. Thankfully you can remap keys in Linux, and I found autohotkey for Windows. Such a lifesaver. I remapped pgup/pgdn to home and end. That's when I discovered...

How did I not know about HOME and END until now!?!?!

These are fantastic keys, especially since I'm so used to vi/m in Linux, and jumping to the beginning / end of lines to do inserts. It is super-useful to have these keys in Windows. I absolutely love the keyboard layout with the remapping now.
