>just-use-lisp-style-identifiers-then

hitting - is not significantly easier than hitting _ when compared to hitting the spacebar.

This is yet another reason I enjoy typing in Dvorak :) (-_ is in a better place)


I honestly thought you'd posted a snippet of smalltalk or lisp or something for a second there. I think some people refer to that as a "brainfart."

(Note that I have no practical knowledge of either language. I probably wouldn't have admitted this if I did.)


Haha! I'm on Dvorak too and didn't understand at all why JohnnyCache thought hitting "-" was so much harder than Space! I guess I've been completely converted for too long.
