I changed the order of the buttons in the bottom talk frame, so that I can type my message, press tab to change the focus to the next button in the form and press space to send off the message. It's really makes a difference if you're a keyboard freak (as opposed to a mouse freak). The tail end of sub talk becomes:

my$prnt = qq~<html> $bodytag <table align="center" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr> <FORM method="post"><td> <INPUT type=hidden name="op" value="message"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="node_id" VALUE="37150"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="mode" VALUE="talk"> <textarea name="message" wrap="virtual" cols="50" rows="4">$extra<\/te +xtarea>$nb </td> <td><table align="center" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="3"> <tr><td><INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="message_send" VALUE="talk"></td><td + align="right"> $nb <font size="-1"><a href="$uri?n=repinit" target="chat">rep</a> $nb <INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="n" VALUE="encode"> <input type="reset" value="clear"></font></td></tr> <tr><td><INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="n" VALUE="tag"></td><td>$nb<select +name="tag">~; my$c = 1; for(@tags){ # cb tag menu my$sel = ''; $_ =~ s/&lt;/</; # fixes the code tag (so i can post the code to p +erlmonks :-) encode_entities($_); if($i{'tag'}){ $sel = ' selected' if $c == $i{'tag'}; } $prnt .= qq~<option value="$c"$sel>$_\n~; $c++ } print $prnt, qq~</select>$nb <br></td></tr> <tr><td><INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="n" VALUE="ent"></td><td>$nb~, entit +ies_menu(), qq~<br></td></tr></table></td></FORM></tr></table> $eh~; exit }

Enjoy!
