    Try control-alt-hyperspace-meta buckyball.

    FWIW, it looks like "Space Cadet" keyboards are gaining popularity. I just got a "MS Office" keyboard to replace a dead one, as it had the best quality and key-feel of any in the store.

    In the superior vim :^), that would be Ctrl-V <numerical character code> (can be any of decimal, octal or hex) - see :help i_CTRL-V_digit

    :-)

    Maybe you could use an ascii sequence such as (*).
