My youngest just wandered through in time to see me prying the key out with a nail file....

"Mom...we have another keyboard we can use. Want me to get it?"

"NO! Don't you know anything about me yet? I won't be happy until the space bar and three or four other keys don't work!"

It's got this long I_________I u-shaped piece of wire that appears to be in good shape, I blew all the dust out of it, and put it back together, but it does not hit on the right side. I have to go back and put spaces in. If I give up and don't even try to fix it,then I am a quitter. If I try to fix it and don't, that makes me a failure. This is TOO MUCH PRESSURE!!! I reckon I'll be taking the whole thing apart next.

Cindi, why do you think you will be a failure if you can't fix everything?. There are some things called trades, you just don't go ahead and do them. Hope you don't get a tooth ache and decide to fill it yourself. But if you don't, you will be a failure? Nice to be independent, and a keyboard is not much of a loss so go ahead. The chinaman that put it together probably is not as smart as you are

Ret, roughly ten years ago I bought a laser tag game for Jake for Christmas. Christams morning, after several hours of play, one of the guns stopped working. I knew that there was no way I was going to go stand in line at Toys'R'Us so soon after Christmas and listen to them tell me that they couldn't take it back, and the look on his face was heart rending.

I figured I had nothing to lose so I tore the thing apart. I found that he had dropped it and the spring on one of the battery thingies had been compressed from the jolt and the battery was not making contact. So I pried it back up and put it back together and sent him on his way. The grin on that shiny six year old face was all the motivation I needed. I have been tearing things apart ever since and almost every time it's a very simple detail that needs fixing. Loose wire, etc. This space bar has got me stymied though. I think it has something to do with that little wire, but I can't figure it out.

I put white out on my keys to make me learn to touch type better.
Well, not really but I had thought of prying them off and switching them around for my wife who is not a touch typist. Hehhehheh!

Could be a good teaching tool.
