This morning I suffered a chronic ECS*, and was forced to raid the piggy bank and go out keyboard shopping… Couldn’t be arsed to trek somewhere like Tantra, and I’m not sure if Bristol Mac Centre runs an actual real shop these days, so I ended up shuftying round that shithole Dixons (now, apparently, ‘Currys Digital’) and Staples, where the only Mac-compatible keyboards I could find were, erm, Muckrosoft.

Enough moaning for now. Here’s what she looks like:
