S7ymptoms of an a8il8ing ke7yboa5rd....

Ok, 8it's not that bad, w8ith some pa8inful effo5rt and mousewo5rk all the unwanted numbe5rs can be ed8ited out....
but 8it 8IS a pa8in, 7you have to adm8it....
The f8i5rst s7ymptom we sa7y was that the caps lock ke7y d8idn't wo5rk. Afte5r a wh8ile we d8iagnosed the p5roblem.....wate5r 8in the ke7yboa5rd.
S8ince then, we have seen mo5re of these s7ymptoms of an a8il8ing ke7yboa5rd...

The delete ke7y wo5rks as capslock.
The capslock ke7y, of cou5rse,5refuses to funct8ion.
So does the 5r8ight a5r5row ke7y.

T5r7y8ing to t7ype ce5rta8in capt8ital lette5rs -i've t5r8ied a and 5r t8ill now- makes me lose about a l8ine and a half of text, wh8ich 8i can't 5rep5rod8uce us8ing an7y ke7y sho5rtcuts.

Ce5rta8in othe5r cap8ital lette5rs --most of them, actuall7y--d5r8ives the text back b7y a l8ine. so 8if 8i want a gap between l8ines 8i have to p5ress ente5r tw8ice.

We8i5red we8i5rd we8i5rd.

T5r7y8ing out th8ings to see what p5roduces what onl7y 5results 8in new and d8iffe5rent spec8ial effects. the ones wh8ich caused me to lose tex5r have been ed8ited out of th8is post,

Appa5rentl7y ke7yboa5rds a5re qu8ite ha5rd to 5repa8i5r, so we'll have to go 8in fo5r a totall7y new one 8i th8ink.....
So t8ill then....
C8iao....
