Hello guys

I have not been up for long, bit of a sleep in this morning!

It is the last day of a mini warm wave of weather we have had over the last 5 days....temps all at about 30c...very strange for Autumn, been a bit warm overnight trying to sleep etc

It is Mothers Day here tomorrow, so today I am making a Classic Baked Cheesecake for dessert tomorrow, should be wonderful

Time for some breakfast now!

Thanks Ads

I think it was caused by the job I had at the time, lots of repetitive movements with my left arm over a 2 year period. I just woke up one morning and couldnt go to work as I couldnt move my arm at all It all started with a frozen shoulder

I wouldn't be surprised if they have just the number pad available by now.
Yes, they do have numeric keypads that attach with USB. I actually bought a separate numeric keypad for my first laptop, back in 1995.

But, I don't want a separate one. That's what the guy at the store suggested. I don't like having to have something off to the side of the 'puter all the time. I don't even use a mouse because of that. I don't want things dangling every time I move the 'puter.

dangling things can be intriguing though, like a dangling thread, f'rinstance. whereas, a hanging thread is pretty much a hopeless thing. now, a thread about hanging things, on the other hand....:)

If your keypad and mouse are attached via a dongle they do not dangle.
My only problem with my dongle attached numeric keypad is that it does not have keys for +/- and 1/x.

Mothers Day here today

Mum will be here for lunch in 2.5 hours, so I will have to make the garlic bread soon and do the prep for lunch

all i can say is splurge and go wireless: mouse, keyboard, audio, internet, etc..
in america, you can write them off as a business expense, then depreciate their value as further in later years.

not sure how canucks do that.
how many pucks can you write off lost in a spring thaw?

Mum came over today for a nice lunch to celebrate Mothers Day..we all really enjoyed all the lovely food we made and a nice bottle of white wine

Mum left about an hour ago with all her presents and we have just been on the recliners, snuggled up under a quilt watching TV, it is raining too and quite cold...lovely
