Re: General Quiz

Solution to #131

Absolutely correct, JohnnyReinB!
To add to your reply, almost all, if not all of the present day PCs (desktop, laptop etc.), palmtops, digital diaries, have the QWERTY keyboards just as the typewriters had. The sequence is logical because it is both the top and the left most (other than the numbers) on the keyboard.
