What's the status on the DS port of O, by the by? The download on your site only has the executable, which won't run on its own, so I'm guessing it's "some assembly required?" (I must also mention that FAA one is so complete and functional that it simply doesn't require much mention, aside from occasional, unoccasioned praise.)

The O port on the site does have the extra zipfile; it is still very basic (like the FA port was at first). I believe a better one will eventuate at some point.

Yep, me too. Normal arrow keys for NSE&W and Home/End/Pg_Up/Pg_Dn for diagonals. Those are set-out perfectly on my lappy k/b, and easy to use.

I sometime use these on full_size k/b too. Often I hit NumLock rather than 7 if using keypad.

I also have one of those external USB keypads that someone mentioned, but it's not really worth using. Too fiddly on my daily train commute.

Just personal preference I guess.
