let the caps lock-key act as a normal shift-key

I suppose you all know accidentally hitting the Caps-Lock-Key and writing all uppercase.

So I decided to degrade this malevolent key to a usual shift-key:

Write this into ~/.Xmodmap:

keycode 66 = Caps_Lock
remove Lock = Caps_Lock
add Shift = Caps_Lock

That’s all for today, enjoy the good weather :)
