$code or die

This is my cat, Elvira.

NOTE: I am no longer using the nick $code or die on this site. Please see my new handle simonflk. That handle matches my PAUSE id for CPAN and is one that I hope I won't grow out of! I will log in as $code or die periodically to check /msg's and update old nodes, but I will not use it for voting purposes. I will leave the content of this page unchanged.

[1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
[1nickt]: But, they do have red keyboard backlighting! And gargoyles on the front, or words like "Maxxx" here and there. They know their demographic!
[1nickt]: True gamers don;t buy Dells, HPs, or Lenovos, I think ;-)
[ambrus]: The keyboard I bought doesn't have backlighting. I specifically had to select for that, because so many keyboards these days have lights. Why would I want lights in the keyboard? I want lights in the room, such as on the ceiling, not in the keyboard.
choroba has a small USB lamp
[ww]: ++ all (phony labels re "gaming"
[1nickt]: ambrus perhaps you know where the keys are?
