MENSA-PAUSE: A hot flash caused by deep, profound thinking. “I had a Mensa-pause during today’s math test.”
(From the BuzzWhack newsletter)

I needed that laugh. I overdid it over the weekend, and everything hurts even more than usual.

I’m extremely annoyed that the proliferation of crappy websites trying to sell prescription drugs (probably run by spammers) is making it far more difficult for me to find useful information about prescription drugs via Google. I can’t even find the manufacturer’s sites easily to see if they have patient assistance programs! This is a change in the last month or so. I hope Google does something to beat them down soon. Hmph.

I’m having weird keyboard issues with my PC. At first, I thought it was my wireless keyboard, and we took it back to Best Buy to be replaced under the warranty. Nope, their tech insisted that it works properly. But it won’t work properly on Sam’s PC, either, so something must be wonky. The old MS Natural Keyboard Pro I’m using now mostly works—except that the left-hand CTRL and ALT keys won’t work sometimes. That’s how the trouble started with the wireless keyboard. I’ve never encountered this sort of thing in 13 years of playing with PCs of my own. I wonder if something in the keyboard connector for this PC is messed up? Hmmm.
