Them ol' played-out I/O card blues

Well, it looks like the keyboard jack on my desktop isn't the only thing screwed up...managed to get logged into Windows but couldn't get the touchpad to work. So I guess it's back to Radio Shack tomorrow for another PS2/USB adapter, since I have one USB jack left on the hub. Be interesting to see how that works...I suspect that I'll either be taking the P-Machine into the shop for some work or just biting the bullet and picking up a new desktop.

Of course, this kept me from doing taxes (again) and working on papers, since in spite of Cowzilla's awesome capabilities the keyboard is not all that when it comes to doing a lot of writing. Especially because the Y key is temperamental. So instead of doing that, I camped out in front of the X-Box with Scott and Melody and got all shot up...one round in Lockout (bad), one in Ascension (very bad) and one in Ivory Tower (pretty good). Melody needs a lot of work with the shotgun but is wall-to-wall deadly with the sniper rifle, beam rifle, and battle rifle; I'm getting good with the plasma rifle and grenades. Mr. Grenade is always my friend. ^^ Scott, of course, is pretty good with all the weapons but is especially obnoxious with the energy sword.

I suppose I could probably do my taxes on paper this year, but being able to deduct the cost of the software as tax prep expense gives me a warm feeling of getting over.

Good God, man, just buy a new computer and stop tormenting that poor thing.

Hey, if I can get by without having to buy a new desktop for another year or two, it's worth the $12 for the PS2/USB converter plug. Even a low-end Dell is going to set me back $400 or so, to say nothing of all the time wasted reinstalling software.
