    You can hit ctrl-alt-del with your right hand (three fings, it's the way i
    do it, using the deliete above the arrows).

    I have also heard of a company that made keyboards for the handicapped which
    grouped keys and allowed easier access for people with only one hand.
    Unfortunatly, I don't remember the URL.
