Every time I am updating my keyboards, the keyboard list that showed up on my keyboards in the logon dialog also was updated. I never really thought about it before.

So when I first saw the preview copy of Dr. International's latest column I thought he had gone nuts. That was not really required, was it?

Important lesson -- to learn what your code does, read the web sites of famous presences in the international community.
