Offline for few days
« on: April 11, 2013, 03:35:23 pm »
Due to a dying keyboard on my netbook I'll not be posting much in the next few days (though I may appear to be online), until the new one arrives.

Yes, I have other PC's (obviously, or how am I posting this), but I generally use my netbook for convenience .. a USB keyboard ruins the netbooks convenience.

I also have access to a netbook running OS X .. but you'll understand my not wanting to use that as much as possible.

New keyboard is ordered, so I'll see you all soon :)

Maybe it will give somebody else a chance to get a word in edgeways ;)

You won't regret it  ;D
If you can keep your head while all around are losing theirs, then you're not quite grasping the situation

I just had to attach the USB keyboard to respond to that.

Here goes then .. HAHAHAHA :)

I said I had access, not that it was mine to do what I want with .. it's got OS X on for christ sake .. I would have thought that obvious ;)

Keyboard arrived .. back in business :)

It has a windows logo where the original had a home symbol .. but at least this one works .. may see if I can swap the key.
