I wonder if there will be a nice ergonomic keyboard in today's woot off.

My keyboard suddenly died. They tend to do that when you spill half a glass of water into them.


Luckily, I kept the keyboard that came with my computer. Unfortunately, it's a "normal" keyboard that my big hands and bitchy wrists are having trouble with. As a bonus, most of the "extra" keys surprisingly seem to work with my out-of-the-box Ubuntu Linux installation. On the downside, the calculator button is crammed in next to the left ctrl key, and I keep hitting it by accident.

So, in all, not dead in the water, but not very happy about it either.

You should totally get one of these as a replacement. Or one of these.

Feh! A hacksaw and electronic skills could easily solve your problem! ;-)

Hey, I spilled a mimosa on mine a few years back...it still worked...except when I hit c, d, or e all three letters popped up...the orange juice pulp was connecting the letters...was kind of cool...but made it difficult for some of my passwords...:)
