i didn't name this page "little black cloud" for nothing. first, my touchpad stopped working as soon as i got things started here. more on that in a minute. then i found out the tagboard code got screwed up somehow, only i couldn't fix it without a touchpad. it was all so very sad and depressing. so today i borrowed a Kensington Orbit trackball, to use temporarily til i can pony up 300 dollars to have my Apple computer all fixed up new.
so anyway, there i am, launching Safari to get to Kensington, right? and then i realize after i begin the download, that i used the touchpad to answer the licensing questions. and so forth. sigh.
apparently, using the trackball released the touchpad from the down position it was stuck in.
my life is so retarded sometimes. but now at least i can re-upload this page so the tagboard works, then come back to make more pretty.
