10/13/08 CSA SHARE: What they say we will get

First, I want to tell you about my “affliction”. This IS, btw, CSA-related! My keyboard has decided that it cannot do anything with the top row (numbers and the symbols connected with them). With my keyboard, I cannot do the most simple things like buy too much on-line. I was looking at having to research, and find a keyboard that works with my primitive Windows 98 (okay, I am holding out as long as I can without upgrading — I just don’t want to be sucked into that upgrade every six months business that the rest of the world seems to be into — I can even wait another six months to see if the genius we have voted in will be worth his salt– uhh… can someone please teach his wife how to dress?????? And can someone please tell her about the Brazilian Keratin perm, so she does not have to look like she just fried her hair??)

Anyway, I was complaining about not being able to write numbers to the guy who sells the beer at the CSA, and he told me about this wonderful thing that is apparently available on newer versions of Windows — you can get a virtual keyboard to mouse on. Of course, it is not available on Windows 98SE, but, once I had learned of it, I googled the idea, and came up with this great program that I am now using called CLICK-N-TYPE — the best thing is that it is FREE!! (okay, it is a little bit of a pain to remember to jump to my click-n-type pop-up every time I want something from that top row, but, hey! I do not have to find the time to find the new keyboard — I just got this one 6 months ago — no, I did not save the receipt.)
