Keyboard came in, and for the last day I’ve been getting used to the layout as well as the shape of the keys.
Shape of the keys, you ask? Yes, this is one of the ergo boards that have parallelogram shaped keys to allow you to have a natural wrist position when you type instead of having to lay your hands at the “normal” typing angle. The frightening thing is that it really works.
It occurred to me this morning that the keyboard and mouse might not work with the linux partition on the laptop. Yes, I just realized that this morning. I was pleasantly surprised when it recognized both on boot up. Getting linux to recognize anything used to be painful when I first started using it years ago.
It really is improving. Now I just need a wireless card with linux support. Broadcom has real issues.
But, for now, I’m just sitting here, killing Spree.
Relax. I’m talking about the candy.
Current mood: relaxed
