« Part 867: Pretty as a Picture Part 868 of My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond series Part 869: Death of a Keyboard »

In a world of high technology, things are bound to get messed up sometimes. Such is my little world here.

A couple of days ago, Kieth got a new mouse. Like many of our devices, it is cordless. Since then, I have been having troubled with my Logitech cordless keyboard, which I absolutely love. It seems that it decides at certain times that random keys just aren’t going to work.

I spent the morning downloading the latest drivers and doing other acrobatics like moving the transmitter around to a different USB port, etc. I MAY have solved the problem, but only time will tell.

The problem here is that we probably have five to six cordless devices associated with our computers. Not to mention the cordless phone. Everything is lined up on the same wall and I think that probably somewhere the lines of communication are getting crossed. Things may just be “confused”

With that said, I am going to keep things short today, since I already spent my writing time this morning playing around with computers. I just about finished the pattern packet for the new dimensional ornaments and today I am working on one more set of embellished ornaments, as well as drawing up a new free ornament that I will be offering on the site and other places. So all is good as long as I can still type. (Lord knows I don’t need anything to make my typing worse!)

I wish you all a wonderful Wednesday! Have fun and be creative! :D

when remote TV’s first came out
they had ‘clicker’ sounds
for different functions

you could change channels
banging pots and pans
washing dishes in the kitchen

Hi Sheila;

I had the same problem with my mouse when I have the receiver plugged into the side of my computer closest to my partner.

Simply moving it to the other side of the computer fixed the problem.
