I love the occasional self-inflicted wound just like the other 
guy. So today I decided to enjoy one... Only to descover that  
it's not as much fun as I thought it would be. And now, I'm in a 
world of hurt.

I enabled the Colemak layout and decided to learn how to type on 
it. Except the lack of sleep cought up to me and when I woke up 
the screen was locked. Since I only learned four of the key 
positions before falling asleep, I have a seriousness problem 
unlocking the computer.

The bigger issue is that the computer was manufactured for use in 
Japan so the keys are arranged differently that traditional 
english keyboards. I can find many layouts of the Colemak 
keyboard on the Internet but none for a Japanese keyboard. Can 
anyone posessing one of these computers help me document the 
Colemak layout please? I believe it is already installed on the 
Mac but is not enabled. If not, download and installation 
instructions can be found here:

Thanks,
Andrew

Almost two hours every possible key combination later... I finally got it. Thanks, Andrew
