Keyboard problems

In the long ago I searched for "unusual" in Google Images. One of the many "unusual" things I found was a site devoted to strange toilets. Many of the pictures were not the sort I would care to post … peeing into a giant clown mouth or onto reclining-women toilets doesn't really amuse me all that much. I wonder if the brake dispenses soap?

     Another day where I'm starting tired seems to be my fate. Blah, to put it succinctly.

     As my vision decreases I'm noticing some odd changes in other things. I used to be an excellent speller. I have an odd tendency to spell things phonetically these days› ov for of, that sort of thing. I can't find a way to link that to my vision save that I have a lot less feedback when typing than formerly. I wonder if a study of any sort has ever been done on such things? Of course, my keyboard problems of the last week aren't helping. My typing speed was already down to under 30wpm from a previous high of 60+wpm. It has been halved in the last week by the fact that my keyboard tends to drop the letters N, G, and Y unless I hit 'em twice and tends to duplicate the letter B unless I'm careful. I've reloaded the drivers and it doesn't fix the problem. I'm at a loss as to how to fix this. Any brilliant suggestions would be appreciated. I feel like I'm stuck in "Xong of Xuxan". For those of you fond of following up my obscure references, it is a short story Ray Russell in which a girl in a post-apocalyptic world finds a typewriter on which the "S" key is broken and starts a diary anyway.

     I'm listening to Queen's Greatest Hits today. The first of the three discs is filled with songs I love. The second has about two songs I recognize. How can "Greatest Hits" be filled with songs I (a tremendous Queen fan) haven't heard? *sigh* I have to wonder what the third disc will be like.

    It is my sad duty to report that my Brother Bob passed away from a heart attack on 1/31/13. I know he had many followers on Live Journal. I thought…

  • I spoke to Lutron today

    I spoke to lutron today. That would be the person, not the corporation. He was on his way to D & D. I haven't done that in more…

  • Another day another dollar. I need a rate increase.

    I have been cat-waxing all day. I really need to write some more on my NaNoWriMo novel. It is a take off on Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake…
