Daniel playing Guitar Hero
This post is brought to you by the letter N, for new keyboard and mouse, courtesy of Daniel. My old one was freaking out too much for me to handle, so he got me a new one, but the layout was seriously the weirdest thing I have ever seen. Remember those old enter buttons that were sort of L shaped, but mirrored? Like _| this shape? Well, the enter key was that shape, but flipped upside down, so more of a -| shape, if you will, exactly shaped so you could in no way reach it with your pinky. It was bizarre. Also, instead of the “insert, home, page up” and “delete, end, page down” keys being in nice rows of three buttons each, they were in two columns. And the zero on the number pad was a normal key size instead of being all nice and large. It was STUPID. There was no way I’d be able to type on it. I felt bad because he was trying to be all nice, like, hey, I got you a new keyboard! Except it would have been impossible to use. And the batteries that came with it were pre-exploded in the little plastic bag.
Anyway, we returned that one today and got a nice HP one with a wireless keyboard and optical mouse. The only thing I’d say I need now, keyboard-wise, is one of those squishy gel wrist prop things. I know you’re supposed to hover your hands above the keyboard or something (that’s what I remember learning in Keyboarding 101 ages ago) but my desk is not conducive to typing like that. So I need a gel wrist rest. Heh.
