You are drunk, so you are going to the pub? Or you are mad, and are going down to the pub to relax and forget about it?

My head hurts today, but I got counterstrike working.

It turned out to be a problem with the interface between the keyboard and the chair.

The keyboard and the *chair*? What do you have, an Interfaces By Kramer (a "captain's chair")?

What, your keyboard is not chair-operated? What century do you live in, the twenty-fucking-first?

Operator error? Oh.

Birdseed... I have a chair with a split keyboard mounted on it for my computing workstation. I had wondered if that was what PB was talking about. They often come with "drivers" that tend to hose up the computer.

Split keyboard eh?

I use a full 360 degree rotating NASA designed space chair/keyboard interface that enables me to post on Counterglow UPSIDEDOWN! It did come with a driver but I sent him back because I can work it myself.

Thanks. They've changed their name and moved, but I was still able to find them thanks to the all knowing Google. I was needing to look them up anyways. Time to replace the my split keyboard.

That is the funniest thing I've seen all day. It's like a throne for the king nerd.

Everyone that sees mine says it's a nerd's captain chair from Star Trek or the space shuttle or something. Even my girl friend.

But it was well worth the price... really prevents wrist strain, which after all my years of ranting and computer game playing, have really caught up with me.
