Another really useful resource is the DosLib popup menu. For situations where I have a few commands that I'll only call when doing a specific task, I'll put just put them in a popup that displays right at the cursor - quick and easy and I don't have to remember a million little commands.
This one is for editing surfaces. I have it defined as a quick key, so I just hit that button with my left hand and go. I might actually define it to the mouse with all these new keys.

"AeccMoveSurfacePoint") ) ) ) (mapcar (function (lambda (x) (if (eq "" (car x)) 1 0 ) ) ) lst ) ) ) (progn (while (eq 1 (logand 1 (getvar 'CMDACTIVE))) (command)) (command (strcat "_." (cdr (nth opt (vl-remove '("") lst))))) ) ) (princ) )
I don't have enough time in the day to learn about all of this stuff myself (despite my efforts regardless) - I really appreciate you (and others) helping, by pointing us in the right direction. I've used DOSLib before, but since the acquisition (when we got all new hardware), I've not re-installed it (until today).

You could make an AutoCAD keyboard from an ordinary keyboard using this simple tutorial. The whole process will take about 15 minutes!
Pretty cool there. I had a Nostromo Speedpad n52 for a while but I just could not get the hang of it with CAD. I even tried it with my FPS pc games but I just fell back to using my keyboard
I am using a black Mac clone keyboard right now and I love it.

I use a Logitech MK550 Wireless Wave Keyboard and Mouse at home.
Very comfy to use.
For work, I use the stock Dell keyboard that came with the computer. I might see about upgrading, though, especially after seeing the tutorial above.
