Shortly after starting this blog, I discovered the need for an ergonomic keyboard.
Since I’m prone to tendinitis in both wrists, on a regular keyboard causes inflammation, which might develop into carpal tunnel syndrome.
When that happens, it’s generally a no good, very bad situation.
Anyway, I found an affordable ergonomic keyboard with a split pad and lots of buttons.
I was all sorts of excited when I got it. It slid free of the Styrofoam padding and bestowed upon me that lovely new technology smell.
You know, the one that smells like plastic and Christmas.
I set it up, reveled in the initial awkwardness of getting used to the split pad again and the feeling of safety granted by the “antibacterial coating” it was advertised with.
I started typing, looked at the arrow keys and start laughing.
|Looks like I missed the arrows enough times to wear the finish away.|
There’s nothing wrong with how the mislabeled arrows function, so I found it especially funny that I of all people would be sent this keyboard.
I could have tried exchanging it, but this defect is a little too fitting to get rid of.
