Downside: three keys seem to be dead, namely Space, Alt, Shift, and Windows keys, either due to a setting thing else it's FUCKING BROKEN. Have left irritating messages on manufacturers website, hope to hear back soon, or am shipping back to Tigerdirect with my curses upon their heads.
Last of pleas for references sent. Now just down to "sit back and pray" phase.
Also, in the end did not do any NaNo today, for shame. :(
Going the hell to bed. Hope tomorrow's better. (Not holding breath.)
