#4309: Not gonna bother with that one today.

Suffering knock-on effects from the illness that laid me low Thursday and Friday; it looks as if I'm not going to get much accomplished today other than washing dishes and cooking dinner. I still feel pretty rancid.

I was going to comment about a post at Vox Day today regarding how much poorer we are now than we were in 2007, but I just don't have the energy for such a depressing discussion. It's hard to discuss something like that in depth when you're still feeling half-embalmed.

And that was pretty much the only thing I saw that made me think about commenting, too.

Last night I plugged my keboard back in, the one that got diet Pepsi spilled on it. It worked, for the most part.

The annoying thing is that some of the keys are sticking. Now, diet Pepsi doesn't contain sugar (by definition) and so it shouldn't leave a sticky residue as the water evaporates--but it does. So I've been, little by little, finding sticky keys, removing them, cleaning them with alcohol, and reinserting them into the keyboard. I am slowly returning the thing to its former touch-typing glory, but I'm starting to think that I will, after all, have to completely disassemble the thing and wash it with soapy water in order to get it properly clean. I've had the space bar out four times and it's still stiff; the other keys have fared better.

Man, it's always got to be something, doesn't it?
