Somehow we’ve got to get our regular computer back and running before this laptop keyboard causes my head to explode. But I’ve also got to take our old hard drive to some data recovery place which looks like it’ll be real hard to find; and we’re out of Robbie’s ear gel medicine and have to get more, and we gotta take Peep to the vet, and there’s a doctor appointment for me…
Aaaaaghh!!! Do you see that? This monster refuses to type the letter “m”! You have to stop and stab the key decisively with one finger, or you don’t get no letter “m”. I can’t imagine how I’m going to be able to compose a Newswithviews column this week.
Please pray for my sanity.

Can’t you plug a USB keyboard into the laptop?
Patty says we can. Of course, it would entail me moving furniture and crawling around in tight spaces… oh, I don’t know! Maybe the thing’s already unplugged…
It should be fairly straightforward. The cable from the keyboard will be plugged directly into the computer. Just remove it and the keyboard should be free.
Let’s see… Ooh-ooh-ooh! Huzzah! Calloo, callay, O frabjous day! Look, kimosabe, it worked! The keyboard was already disconnected and I didn’t have to move furniture or crawl into any tight spaces full of cobwebs.
It just took me all this time to realize my regular keyboard was just sitting there waiting to be picked up and used.
Glad to be able to help.
