Among the many varietys of "fun" that I've been having lately is "keyboard fun". This does not mean that I've been enjoying the use of some keyboard instrument.
Rather it's a thin sarcasm aimed at my keyboard. It's a good one, or at least it was.
It's a Dell keyboard no more than a couple of years old. It looks great, low profile black desing that I really prefer.
However it's been having a lot of sticky key problems. Sometimes a key will stick in the down position. This can be hard to spot sometimes if the key is caps-lock, control, alt or shift when you're using it to control a game.
Then I switch to a text editor or email program and find myself writing in all upper case, caps don't seem to work, or even times when nothing appears to work.
The other kind of problem is when I'm typing and some key or other just doesn't work for a second or three. Suddenly I can find myself writing that email and I'll see something like musiansfriends instead of Musician's Friend when I'm answering somebody's question about what is Joey's favorite place to shop.
It makes for what must be 50 times as many typos to fix than there normally are.
too bad I can't just run out and get a new keyboard.

For several months now there's been rumors going back and forth about how yoga guy is planning to move to another town, leaving Nutjob Hills in literal peace.
Of course these rumors have been flying in both directions. Some insist that he's definitely moving, others claim that the appearance of moving is all part of some nefarious plan that will end in hideous noise that none in our small but fair city can escape.
I try not to pay much attention to the rumors or the various and sundry discussions about which of them is true. Instead I rely on my own observations. Frankly there's not been much to observe. Yoga guy has been about his usual routine for most of this time. However this morning I saw a truck in front of his house.
This in and of itself is not all that remarkable. He's frequently taking delivery of assorted musical gear. His account at www.guitarcenter.com is quite probably one of the most active they've got.
The thing that was different this time however is that instead of offloading stuff from the truck, he was supervising as some workers loaded several large crates onto the truck.
Could this be a sign he's leaving? Or is something else going on here?
I am definitely not a hamster, most other things may vary without notice.
