Photo diaries from travels around our humble globe are still being posted; the unemployment diary has been downsized as i am now employed! I hope to post stuff to keep you distracted from your respective employment.

Charlotte, bless her, is good to me. When she saw my eyes lite up over the ZBoard "the gamer's keyboard ", she said "When you get a job, the Zboard can be yours." Well.... now the phrase comes back to haunt her. What is a ZBoard, you ask, well there it is, in all it's glory. A USB keyboard, it's got a usb hub right on the keyboard, so i got my mouse and camera hooked into it too, but the best part is the interchangeable keysets- you get two sets, one for normal pc usage, and one for gaming (shown above) ... the gaming one has got all your important keys like RELOAD, DUCK, JUMP, NIGHT VISION- hey, you never know. The standard keyboard is sexy too, with volume controls, browsing buttons, a key for MY COMPUTER and CALCULATOR and stuff like that. You cannae wack it!! Back to games for me!

I must say, it takes some getting used to. I've been playing with a QWERTY for so long, i'm really awful at gaming with this thing. As yoda said "You must UNLEARN what you have LEARNED."
