I wasn't really into computers until I bought a better mouse, that really got the ball rolling (only pre-millenial kids will understand this ).
Not playing anything at the moment, and for good reason. I can't game with moderation, so once I start I'll neglect my social life and duties outside work (I still go to work). That was awesome when I was still in school, but then something called "adulthood" happened (not to be confused with "adultery") The last game I played and finished was Final Fantasy XV on PlayStation. The last game I played and finished on PC was Planescape: Torment (and that was last year). Since my computer isn't really up to par these days I switched to PlayStation gaming. I'm currently looking forward to Horizon: Zero Dawn[^]
My faithful lappy is down two keys - up and left cursor - plus the 5 & 7 sometimes need an extra hard press; I guess they'll be gone soon. I have a number pad so I can use that for the cursor and just have to remember to really hit those 5 & 7's well. I do have an external keyboard and mouse for work so it' only weekend/evening faffing that gets hit.
I didn't get it either - mind you it is early here and I'm still only half way through my first coffee. For the record due to a late night red wine accident my keyboard at home now has several latching keys which only release after a random period of 1-5 seconds...
Just got an email, advertising HDD's. And one caught my eye: Seagate BarraCuda and a picture of a 10TB HDD. The price? £41.99 (or $52.12 at todays exchange rate) "I'll get four and upgrade the NAS!" I thought, quickly clicking on it. No, no ... "from £41.99" it says. That price gets you a 500GB. 10TB are £427.98 each. Elephant.
Grrr...I hate small print...
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
And actually there is a law about small letters in printed advertising, but it is an absolute small (not smaller than 2 mm) and not a relative, so a designer still can hide some important info... (and this too, in Israel)
Skipper: We'll fix it. Alex: Fix it? How you gonna fix this? Skipper: Grit, spit and a whole lotta duct tape.
Mind you - I do have some sympathy for Dilberts current predicament, tomorrow I have a review of my 'Team Management Profile' followed by session 1 of the 'Leadership and Management Development Programme'.
