For example: my right start button minimizes or maximizes all my Firefox windows, right click left click minimizes the current window, left click right click is mute, right click scroll wheel adjusts volume. I could go on... but I won't. The jist of it is a script that lives in your system tray waiting for key combinations. Amazingly useful as I've had it configured. Now there's a Lifehacker article about how to add text replacement using AHK. Hmm let me fix that. Auto Hot Keys. Whew, that took all of five seconds to code. So now when I write ahk, the text is replaced with what it means. Kinda reminds me of the time I set the auto-correct in word to replace my brother's name with mine. I guess I have to make sure that I don't use those acronyms for anything else, but what this immediately springs to mind for is eliminating all that leet crap I have to read. The brbs and the lols and the stfus. Now you can have your shorthand and eat it too.
