|It's a sad day in the Zig household. After 8+ years of loyal service and close friendship, my LiteOn ergo board has passed on and is now in the happy recycling grounds.|
Friend, I'll never forget you. I remember how happy we were when you first moved into my home. The way you chuckled at me as I got used to funky key layout and your intergrated touchpad. The way you protested over the occasional beer bath at a clumsy hand. The way you always said.....Zig...it's OK........type away in IRC, those typos aren't your fault......I'm an "ergo board".....you were always there for me buddy.
Remember that time, I bought the new computer? You know.....that lil atx 233 celeron. We panicked trying to find adapters for you to plug into it's ps2 ports..........but we found them. Then there was that time I wanted to slave a wheel mouse to you and you laffed, we found a db9 to ps2 for your onboard port, and you said.....hey.......this looks good on me............yeah...those were the days.
You were the best of your breed my friend. You had all the features I needed, and none of the silly crap you're kindred now seem so proud of. Who the hell needs a button on a keyboard to jump straight to the home shopping network? I have a mouse, it's called bookmarks.
Rest well my friend, you'll never be forgotten, you truly were "The King of Keyboards"
