Went to a yard sale yesterday and scored two new Dell keyboards for $5.00. My old one was missing buttons, and the keys were sticking and faded. Feels like a new PC now!

They used to get $25 + for them.  Now they almost give them away.

Two new, still in the box..... And I really needed one, just didn't know it. Free would have been better, but I think I got a deal. At least I can see the keys, but still doesn't help with the "one finger typing".

The best class I had in high school, other than Ag, was typing. Two years of it as one of only three guys in the class but it has paid off a thousand fold in college and at work. No one finger hunt and peck for me.

I have to install Windows patches to the 911 recorder NICE server, and install antivirus patches to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Windows 7, and Windows Server 8 server boxes next week. Oh fun.

I think we need a "cheep computer finds" thread or a "what did you do to your technology" thread.  Great finds and well worth the money.
