So there I am this morning away from home, wanting to do a bit of writing on the LifeDrive with the Palm Wireless (IR) Keyboard.
I open the keyboard. Plop in the LifeDrive.
Start typing. But no letters appear on the screen.
I fold the keyboard, open it again, try it again.
I open the battery compartment and switch the position of the batteries.
I take out the damned batteries and put in a new pair (yes, I carry extras with me!).
I reset the LifeDrive.
What is going on here?!!?
Veteran Palm users will already be laughing at my eejitcy. It was all so obvious.
I hadn’t turned on the keyboard driver!!!
So now I’m going to tape a little sign into the keyboard: Turn On The Driver, You Eejit!
A stupid machine will always humble even the smartest human being…
