in reply to poll ideas quest 2015

My keyboard shows this many letters:

  1. 0 - I'm a blankster
  2. 0 - my devices have no keyboard
  3. 0 - I use a chorded keyboard that transcends your concept of keys
  4. 26 - I need the other keys for Perl sigils!
  5. 31 - I write code in the original APL
  6. 31 - ß counts only as one letter!
  7. ∞ - I use an Optimus keyboard
  8. 1 - I reject your Latin-centric notion of letters

Update: Added the subscript 1 to ℵ, as per discussion with Happy-the-monk, below.

      I used ℵ for Aleph One, which roughly is "one more than (countable) infinity" :-)

        Oh, you mean ℵ1 ;-) That wasn't so easy to grok :)

        Wouldn't that be Aleph + 1? :)
