It is a sad day here, my favorite keyboard of 15 years has quit functioning. It came with the Gateway Athlon Windows 98 desktop i bought in the summer of 2000. As I replaced my PC several times it still remained a fixture even when I had to buy an adapter for PS2 to USB. I did not mind that as PC's went from beige cases to black and it's beige keyboard was out of place, it still survived the crumbs, spills and other hazards keyboards are subject to. But as I went to enter my blood sugar reading into the spreadsheet this morning, nothing happened. Exhausting all attempts to resuscitate it, I finally got a spare keyboard and plugged it in. Confirming my fears, keystrokes appeared on the screen confirming that my old friend has gone to that great keyboard place in the sky. He will be missed as I am having one hell of a time typing on this blankety blank thing I have had to replace him with.
RIP Delanti's Keyboard.
Sounds like it was loved, and had a good life
Pining for the fjords.
If a keyboard lasts me over a year, I'm surprised. I'm rough on the poor beasties.
I used to love my old IBM keyboard from the early 9os, (I still have it) but I have moved on, and my favourite keyboard now, is a backlit one I picked up on evil bay for about $20, not that I use it much, as my lappy is my main tool these days.
Misleading is a positive way to describe it.
I am a fan of the older style keyboards but am not too attached
To any particular one. I am a touch tpist and feel for thraised dots. I fslike this touch screen on my wife's phone I am using.
I'd think, Scholar, that you may be better served by looking at the keyboard on occasion, if your last post is anything to go by.
Funeral for a friend!
