Got a new keyboard. It had a sleep button on it or something. I've never used them on purpose, though often hit not on purpose. Given the placing of the button, i hit it a few times already, and crashed Mozilla or Agent. This past time i had just written a reply in Agent, and after losing it, decided to take the board apart and remove the buttons, being attempts to pop them proved fruitless.
Took it apart and lost little plastic thingies, and now some buttons won't work. And that was after a lot of work. What a waste of ten bucks. If it just said "Made in China"on the *outside* perhaps i would have avoided it. Seems to be everything made for America in China is of worse quality than the Slashdot spell checker.
So much for iconcepts keyboards. They're now on my blacklist together with Memorex (MemTek).
So, back to this other IBM keyboard i have. It's great except its missing [F5] and the spacebar needs some extra hitting. I guess it's back to the store for another KB later, though this time, i'll be more careful about keyspacing. Hmm... there was a Kensington keyboiard in clearance. Nothing special about it, but if that's the same Kesington that makes those fancy keyboards, perhaps...
