I have solid advice for you today. Not some limp, coulda-lived-with-out-it kind of advice… nope, the real deal. Concrete offerings. This is the shit to write home about…
Do not- ever- make your desk so cluttered that you spill half a glass of some new-age Chai Tea blended smoothie stuff onto your Kensington Expert Mouse Wireless trackball and the number pad of your Apple Pro Keyboard. Trust me when I say this, (though you may roll your eyes in disbelief), it is not conducive to proper equipment functionality. You will break your shit, is what I’m telling you. The aforementioned items will cease to work as intended by their respective manufacturers.
I found this out the hard and spiny way tonight. But, as every tumultuous storm gives way to a path of ethereal rainbows, my sloppy input device dowsing produced one fine ribbon of prosperity: I went out and got a swanky new wireless keyboard and mouse. It’s not the magnificent trackball that I once had, however, it will do the job. I got the Cordless MX Duo from Logitech and I must say that the components rock so far.
I don’t recommend you dump some sugary protein drink on your keyboard to get what you really want- I could never advocate such a desperate measure- however, it worked for me.
good night my sweets~
a smooch to you all!
