Re: kbdrate hangs on my new G4. Waaah!
This is awful. I can't type like this. I type "roast" and it come out
"roastt" because the delay is practically nil. :( If you could PLEASE
PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE find a way for me to change the delay to something
sensible (preferably more than the 0.0000015286 picoseconds it seems to
currently be set to) it would be VERY much appreciated. Thanks again, Ben!
