End of life - Happy Hacking Fri, Jun 16, 2006

For the better part of the last 6 years I have been an extremely satisfied and loyal user of the Happy Hacking Keyboard Lite 2. This little keyboard has been with me through thick and thin. I can only imagine the number of lines I’ve coded with the little guy. On Tuesday the Control key (which you’ll note is in the correct position - where most people think the caps lock should go) began to stick. And worse - the stick happens not on the way up, but on the way down. Nothing more infuriating than a key that refuses to be pressed. So little keyboard, I give you retirement. You shall be placed in The Sergents data center on the console of the server where you shall remain the rest of your days. You were with me when I learned Python. You followed me in my struggles with php. You endured my heavy handed attempts at Java. You sat patiently as I cursed XML. Windows, Linux, or OS X - it didn’t matter to this little keyboard. Rest well.
