my old keyboard …

I was browsing the pictures in my phone when I stumbled on these old photos, my old office keyboard.

Nothing’s special about it. It’s not even a high-tech keyboard (with fancy buttons and all). But… I’ve used this keyboard for 5 years! I had it replaced last year because one of the keys died.

5 years of wear-and-tear can make a keyboard this:

Markings of often used keys were already gone and the left ctrl key has a hole in it! Windows’ shortcut key remained unscathed (it’s a vestigial key in this case).

Oh well, I’ve written a lot of Perl and BASH code with this keyboard. One lesson that I learned with this, is that, I should clean my keyboard more often 🙂
