First steps in Colemak#

This is more of a placeholder than anything else, but I decided at the weekend that it was time to learn to touchtype, and further, that it would make sense to switch to Colemak at the same time. I don't yet know if it actually will prove correct, it's too early too say.

I'm using Colemak Academy and have achieved 97% on the home keys at an astonishingly speedy 18 words per minute, but the top and bottom rows are still strangers to me. And only after trying to use Emacs did I learn that the Colemak layout rebound Caps lock (which I bind to Ctrl) as Backspace).
