Moment of Zen by Expat
The majority of the keys on my laptop keyboard have conveniently stopped working,which has left me relying upon the on-screen keyboard to respond to emails and to post. So far, this technique has not met with a great deal of success and I would not recommend it to the masses. :P
My apologies to those who have emailed me inquiring about having their urls added to the blogroll. I will make the additions as soon as it is humanly possible.
I never knew about any on-screen keyboard. I keep learning new things from you; thanks!
Is there any hope for cleaning the physical keyboard? On my laptop, there are slide-clips under the top row which hold it in place (it's hinged near the spacebar, and connected with ribbon cable). Other models, of course, are assembled differently.
I learned today that there is nobody in town who will touch my Sony Vaio. In fact, the word on the street is that Sony keeps a very tight chokehold on its component pieces, so I would be best to just send it in to be serviced. UGH!
Next time I am buying Alienware. All the cool kids are doing it. :P
I had the same thought as you about the external keyboard and went out last night to find one that would work. The only USB varieties that I found came with a mouse, which is ridiclous considering that I just bought a new kick-booty mouse last week. :P I did find a decent keyboard online though and it is on its way. One more sleep and I will be blogging "ghetto-style" from the comfort of anywhere on my laptop. Woot!
Dang that Alienware was just bought out by Dell. I have shed a tear.
