I am actually Chris Winters; I am actually living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA; I am actually married and have three cats. (Guess what one of them is named?) I am the "OpenInteract" guy, which could be good or bad.

When you least expect it...

[ #2797 ]

My keyboard has died. For most people, this isn't a big deal. But I am extremely dependent on my keyboard. When I started my current job, I brought it with me on the first day. (Also to put a little spook into my colleagues: this guy means business. Like a pool shark.) After six weeks of bringing my keyboard from home every day, one of my co-workers took pity on my and hassled a boss to buy me one.

How did it die? I'm not certain yet, but one of our cats was nibbling on the wire a little bit this evening and the next thing: no joy. Looking at the keyboard it doesn't appear that any of the bites even pierced the sheath, but there's still the little cause-effect to be drawn.

I don't know how I'm going to be able to use xemacs without the control/alt keys at my thumbs...
