Something must get damaged from all that banging http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. Since it's not his head (i guess) he must be changing a lot of keyboards.

Possible answers:
1. 1-10.
2. 10-20.
3. 20+.
4. He has a keyboard from the 90's (on of those that never brake http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ).
5. He doesn't need a keyboard to comunicate with the computer he can mind-control it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

I vote that he has his minions to do his typing for him, and they are the ones banging their heads against the keyboard, so really it would depend on the number of minions he has employed to do his typing.

Sorry to get offtopic, but I must share something amazing

My keyboard is miraculous: Despite contributing +25000 posts here (Got proof and witnesses), my keyboard is still in the same condition that it came in

I have never replaced my black, stock Dell keyboard. It has no signs of wear on it at all. Everything still works (Including the infamous and puzzling Scroll Lock key).

Perhaps I should get rich selling it on eBay

I find that Dell keyboards have the best feel to them. Too bad they're so expensive to replace. And too bad their hardware isn't as great as their keyboards.

I think he has a spare keyboard for the head banging. Takes it out whenever he runs into a fine example of stupidity.

And guessing from how much he does it, I think its quite a bit http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
