usually by mid-afternoon, i have stopped counting how many coffees i've had. i think most days i average about five cups, though. of course, my 'cups' are those big 16 ounce boys, too. still, that's nothing compared to what they put into those energy drinks like 'five hour' and red bull, today's hot sellers. i drank one a couple of years ago. it tasted like kool aid and near put me to sleep....

this is going to sound nuts, i know, but i am looking for an answer to something even google couldn't help me with. when i try to copy a link on my computer, all i get is the word 'david'. i have attempted to copy a number of different links, carefully pressing the usual keys: CONTROL, COPY, and then CONTROL, V. the result is always simply 'david'. does anyone have an idea for me to try?

Are you using Windows? Which browser?

In FireFox (and I think it works in Chrome too), point at a link with your cursor and right click. A context menu will appear and one of the choices will be "copy link". That should do it.

There should be two buttons on the front of the pad. They work just like mouse buttons.

The two small rectangles at the bottom of the touchpad are the buttons:

Tapping is like left clicking, but you can't hold the click with a tap, that's the other most common use for the buttons.
