Deja-vu or total recall?

I've seen so many film sequences of people going to emergency theatre. The camera must be on the bed facing upwards at about 70 degrees. All that is visible is the overhead lights of the corridors, lifts and rooms as we speed through them to the operating theatre.

But this is not a film, this is real and it's . . .

Serious keyboard geeking ahead - and why not, the keyboard is one of the most important interfaces/inputs to your computer. So best get it right and ramp up the enjoyment level.

I have developed a feeling of impermanence, like I am living in a bubble and it is ready to burst. I want this feeling to change.

I have a clock recovered from the cockpit of a USAF plane, possibly an F4 Phantom, possibly a U2 spy plane, probably something more mundane though...
