a run-in with the techie gods

After years of ignoring all those warnings about liquids and computers, last night I managed to spill a cup of water on my keyboard . It seemed to be alright, but when I turned it on this afternoon everything that I typed looked like this : h33e4=l09l09o2. I only spilled a few drops on the number keys, but the damage was done. I had to make an emergency trip to Best Buy for a new keyboard. I took it as a sign that it was high time to upgrade 🙂 so I got myself a wireless set, and now it feels like I have a whole new computer. In a way, it is almost like a new computer since the tower is all that is left of the original. I can actually see the letters on the keys again! Some of the letters on the old one had faded almost to invisibility. And this one is nice and quiet. And the mouse has back and forward buttons! (I’ve been playing with all the buttons). Very exciting, all this new technology.
