@thraeryn Not sure if I *can* disconnect the keyboard from my Lenovo T480. Not without tools (want to use adjectives but they all need the letter I have not got) -- tools for use by masters of the art of fixing. Should maybe take it to those masters after all.
I do have enough money but it would be awkward to be without it for however long it takes to fix. Just now I am back from Worldcon and want to blog.
One tiny bit of cider fell on my keyboard last night and now I dont have the letter between o and q, or the arrow making my cursor go the other direction from down (which also needs that letter), or quotes. Any advice other than take it to someone who can fix it for money?
I want to blog but don' have the energy. Possibly tomorrow. (Also spilt cider on my keyboard which is affecting the 'p' key but hitting it hard enough will still make it write a 'p')
Dear news site: five elephants isn't "a herd of elephants". It's an elephant family at most.
@ak OfficialDOM. And that wasn't even autocorrect, it was my fingers on the laptop. (Worldcon and a day and a half of travel sure does make one tired)
My Dublin #worldcon badge turns out to have four ribbons more than my Helsinki badge. Thought it was longer even when I was still wearing it. Still didn't get some of the ribbons I really wanted.
@ak For *me*, "real name" means the name I use. The name on my passport is my legal name. (It irks me when people use "real name" to mean "legal name", but most people clamoring for real names mean that).
@ak It would keep a lot of cis people off social media too. (I'd *sign up* under my legal name, like I grumblingly did for Worldcon, if I had the *guarantee* that it wouldn't leak to any other users. As it was, I had to correct them THREE TIMES because they addressed me by a name I haven't used for more than thirty years except for officialcome, don't identify with, and nobody knows me by)
Check out a derivation product of my webcomic Pepper&Carrot: "Witchcraft: Magic of Hereva", a #DnD5e supplement by Xacur on Kickstarter (RPG). Link and my thought about it on my blog: https://www.davidrevoy.com/article728/
Grr, when I fumbled a bit with my transport pass a young fellow GRABBED IT FROM MY HAND and checked out for me. And when I protested he got angry. If he'd asked "can I help" I'd have said "no, thanks" and figured it out for myself, now I had to stand on the platform fuming so long I had to let a tram go and take the next.
I don't usually go for meat-flavoured crisps but these are actually okay. (Bought them because I was intrigued)
@gcupc Er, excuse my stupid question. Didn't get enough sleep last night or enough tea this morning.
@blankideogram Yes, there's that. But I think there were more people from the US than from the UKand Ireland combined reading the signs.
Whew I succeeded in turning Google Assistant off again after inadvertently turning it on. I wish I could remove the bleeping thing completely.
Look what I got at Worldcon! Demi flag badge specially handmade for me.
