    anyone else find entering IP addresses an annoyance? sure you can lock in ALT and type in the numbers, but then you have to unlock ALT to hit the dot. usually i just type the whole thing out and then go back and insert the dots.

    anyone have a better way of doing this? it kind of sucks.

    Type three numbers, hit space twice, backspace once, continue? Haven't actually tried it, but sounds good. :D

    if you're locked into alt, space brings up the symbols.

    Using the virtual keyboard makes this easier - the period is still available on the same screen as the numbers. If you only want to use the physical keyboard.. no idea.

    Keep a file handy containing your IP addresses and copy paste them?

    Dns doesn't fix the fact that there are still sites that require manual ip entry.
