I killed our ergo keyboard last night. Spilled some juice over it and then (pumpkin brain as I am) tried to wipe it off rather vigorously. Not too roughly, but I did manage to make a fine mess, changing the whatchamancallit, so that pushing an "k" would type "uio_e/" or somesuch. A mess.
Today I opened the thing up and cleaned it thru. Shiny, like a new thing. And while most of the buttons worked just fine, some didn't. And there was still plenty of other muck-ups.
So now we have a "normal" keyboard. And my wrists ache like Billy Ray Cyruses heart. Even typing little things like an email (and boyoboygoshwow have I been writing those recently!) or this post are just about what I'm able to get done, before my right wrist is more or less engulfed by the flames and pain from Hell. How was I ever able to write anything before my precious ergoboard?
It took a while to get used to, but now I couldn't imagine living without one. Except that at least for a while I have to. Sob.
Don't drink and type. Eikös teeveenkin setä sanonut näin?
