Keyboard activity statistics

Here's some mouse and keyboard usage statistics from my laptop, gathered using a program called WhatPulse. The program was installed on October 28, 2008, so these statistics track the past 8 months and 26 days.
  • Total mouse clicks: 495,138
  • Mouse movement: 56.27 km
  • Total keystrokes: 2,347,495
  • Most used key: Tab (246,242)
  • Most used letter: E (98,690)
  • Most used number: 0 (5,009)
  • Most used function key: F2 (1,370)
  • Most used arrow key: Down (88,891)
  • Least used letter: Q (1,176)
  • Least used number: 7 (574)
  • Least used function key: F12 (0)
  • Least used arrow key: Up (59,672)
The Tab key has gotten a lot of activity since I use it to navigate forms, switch between windows, and switch between tabs.

I'm most amazed by my neglect of the F12 key, which hasn't been pressed a single time in nearly 9 months. Poor guy. :(
