can someone pray for me?

My keyboard on my laptop is going wonky. I think it's from when I spilled a bunch of shit on it over the last 6 years or so. I use the air in a can but end up getting distracted by blowing it at my cats instead of getting the junk from under the keys , ./ shift enter ; and '. Sometimes JMNKH are funky too. I can feel things crunching underneath when I type.

OH and the escape key fell off god knows when.

pray for me

1. So buy a cheap keyboard and plug it in

Problem solved.

Of course, a 7 year old machine qualifies as a jaolpy in the computer world. You could always consider junking it.

2. Does that mean you're not praying, warpy???

please. Bow your head.

Also, taking online classes and can't junk the jalopy just yet. Despite the fact that now the letter "j" is being troublesome now (it was fine 2 minutes ago), the computer works excellently. We're gonna get a MacBook in a few months because Mr. Heddi and I will both be going to school and will need a 2nd computer.

This is a dell laptop. I can get a replacement keyboard on ebay for $4. I'm just bitching. Because I don't want to do statistics homework. And i need some prayers.

I have to say, this is is a Dell laptop, I know I know, dell is evil. But this thing and the one we had before it have been MONSTERS that keep on going. The first laptop we got in 2004 and just sold it on Ebay a few months ago for $250. I thought we'd get a nickel! It worked like a charm.

This one we've had since 06 or 07 and it's been a real workhorse. Apparently I have (had) the only 2 dell laptops that didn't crap out a day after the warranty ended. I wont' be buying another dell, we'll be getting a Macbook but this is far from a clunker (knocking on wood so it doesn't crap out the day before my midterm...)

let us pray.....

Please pray for that young boy to get some senna and a suppository

5. Well, thanks a LOT

Given the success rate of prayer, I'll never find that quarter now.

19. No, no - *steal somone else's keyboard*, and then pray for forgiveness

Thank you, Emo Philips.

· When I was a kid, I used to pray every night for a new bike. Then I realised, the Lord doesn't work that way. So I just stole one and asked Him to forgive me ... and I got it!

21. Love Emo Phillips!

I think I first heard the bridge joke here on DU.

Once I saw this guy on a bridge about to jump. I said, "Don't do it!" He said, "Nobody loves me." I said, "God loves you. Do you believe in God?"

He said, "Yes." I said, "Are you a Christian or a Jew?" He said, "A Christian." I said, "Me, too! Protestant or Catholic?" He said, "Protestant." I said, "Me, too! What franchise?" He said, "Baptist." I said, "Me, too! Northern Baptist or Southern Baptist?" He said, "Northern Baptist." I said, "Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist or Northern Liberal Baptist?"

He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist." I said, "Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region, or Northern Conservative Baptist Eastern Region?" He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region." I said, "Me, too!"

Northern Conservative†Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1879, or Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912?" He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912." I said, "Die, heretic!" And I pushed him over.

15. I' ll pray for you AND send "good vibes".

in fact, when I get the pope's job I'll see to it that you're made a saint. You know you deserve it.

16. Pray for a can of compressed air.

Pray directly to the god Amazon. I swear it works. Offer up a small sacrifice. Amazon will provide.

I use the air in a can but end up getting distracted by blowing it at my cats instead

24. I have the same problems as you.

There are crunching sounds under the keys. My right shift key does not work and sometimes the space bar won't work. This is the second keyboard I bought in a year. I keep spilling things on it. It is a Mac keyboard and they are a little pricier than a regular PC keyboard. A PC keyboard will not work with a Mac. I need a prayer or miracle or two for a new keyboard.

26. Sure, I'll pray for you.

It won't do a bit of good, but if it makes you feel better. Do you have a preferred diety that I should pray to?

And while I am praying, turn your keyboard upside-down and beat it a few times on the desktop while shaking it around to dislodge those crunchies.
