This replacement keyboard sucks even more than my original. I will have to get a new one on Friday. Also, at some point over the next few days, I should probably attempt to reinstall Linux on prufrock. As for Macavity? Macavity is in the repair shop (it does *indeed* look like the traditional thinkpad problem) and is getting itself a shiny new keyboard (which moved from "nice" to "necessity" when I discovered that Mr. IBM Repair Guy lost both those keycaps that were loose before. (Typing without "u" is problematic; typing without "t" is damned impossible.)
But (a) there are high hopes for turning Macavity back from boatanchor into functional computer, (b) my data is safe and being backed up, and (c)I've got my friend's computer for the time being while I ponder re-installing linux on prufrock (or Win2k, though I think I need to do that hard drive upgrade before I ponder that).
Other than that, I'm still waiting patiently for my OotS book (and Patrick's as well), and I should have a CD coming from Down Under. (Redgum, for those of you who are Aussies on my friends list.)
The dog knows where Petco is too. We went there for a new collar after I dropped off my laptop, and she liked that very much. And it was a nice distraction from the garage.
It goes. That's about all I can say.
