I used to use a microsoft sidewinder keyboard and program a lot of the macros with useful code snippets, i also took the num pad and put it on the left side and mapped snippets to it as well. this worked great, but i was surprised to find that not many people had something similar. I've seen a few things out there like X keys, but was wondering what other programmers do for repetitious code snippets. I know that most text editors allow you to save macros, but I really like to idea of having a dedicated key for a particular snippet.
