You folks may remember back a couple of weeks ago (the 6th of May to be exact) when I had to run to my favorite computer geek extraordinaire when my keyboard and mouse stopped working?
You may recall that we replaced my keyboard and mouse that day – which just so happened to be the last day of my warranty on this particular PC (which is why I was able to remember the date so well – I’m not normally that good, or that organized.)
Well, I thought I might give you guys a little peek into life as my computer. People laugh when I say I go through a laptop a year. People balk when I say they haven’t made a computer yet that I can’t wear out in a short period of time.
I should really be a test dummy for the wearability and abuse-ratings for computer parts and accessories. Seriously – if there’s a manufacturer of PCs out there who thinks I can’t wear their equipment out in less than a year, just by sheer volume of use?
I say bring it on, baby! I promise you, there’s not a computer part IN THE WORLD that can take the kind of wear and tear I dish out.
And for those of you wondering…does she really do THAT much writing all day? Here’s your sign:
Yes folks, that did indeed use to be and “S” next to that “A.” And the non-existant letter between the “X” and “V?” That use to be a “C.” Two weeks ago, there were pretty little white letters on each key of this keyboard. Now my “N” key is nothing more than a partial backslash wannabe, my “L” thinks it’s an “I” and my “Enter” key is just a “ter.”
Good thing what shows on the key isn’t what shows on the page, or we’d really be in trouble. Instead of writing this sentence, I’d be writing this one: I\ tea[ of writi\g thi e\te\ e.
That could be interesting to explain to clients.
I guess it’s a good thing I don’t have to look at the keys to type. That could spell disaster, or Ii a ter, depending on how you look at things.
