Withdrawal

Well, tonight marks the end of the City of Heroes BETA test period. The servers go down tonight and come back up on Sunday (for pre-order and BETA people) and Wednesday for the rest of the world.

I haven't been gaming madly, just in case you wondered. I did a little set up work should Husband and I care to have a last fling tonight, but since all will be erased at midnight, it doesn't seem quite worth it. I don't know. Part of me wants to be online when the announcment is made and part of me thinks I can find something better to do.

Two whole days. Two WHOLE days.

That and I'm having keyboard trouble. You see, I'm a bit anal about keeping my laptop clean. With all the cats I have, cat hair gets into everything -- and my computer is no exception. So yesterday I popped off the keys to pull out cat hair.

Canned air just won't do it. The stuff is pernicious. It takes tweezers to pull it out.

However, as usual, the keys I popped aren't working as well as they should. Most annoying is the space bar. I must hit it hard and dead center to get a space. This slows down my typing speed as well as causing a lot of backing up to put spaces in. Grr. Unfortunately, there's not a lot I can do about it. The "B" key is also having some problems. I'd pop them off to reset them if I didn't think that would compound the problem. Bah.
