Earlier this year my centuries old XT keyboard lost the use of the letter
'n'.  Fortunately, I had enough advance warning that I was able to change
all my passwords to exclude the letter. For several days, I had to bring
up an 'n' containing email address from my address book, to be able to cut
and paste the letter into my emails - (using pine). 

You do not have an appreciation for how often a letter is used until you 
have to type ctrl-u everytime it occurs in a word.

Finding a keyboard for a 1985 ibm XT was not the easiest thing in the
world. :)
