I came downstairs to find the Computer Room had exploded and a distraught Spring trying to piece it together again.
Okay, it didn't literally explode—just that the stuff in there finally got to Spring so she started tossing items out of the Computer Room. In this case, pretty literally tossing items out of the Computer Room (I'm still finding bits and pieces of a former mouse that didn't survive—not that it deserved to live anyway).
To calm her down, I gave her the task of sorting through a box of papers, tossing out the garbage, keeping the important stuff. She didn't quite understand why I had her do that when the rest of the room (and the front entry hall way) was still in a state of mess, but there was method to my madness; basically, get her out of the room and concentrating on something else while I finished cleaning up the area around the Computer Room.
Once she was done with the sorting, I had her file everything in the box. She still wasn't clear why I was having her do such seemingly inconsequential tasks, but such inconsequential tasks (which weren't all that inconsequential) were calming her down.
In the mean time, I had pretty much finished with cleaning up the Computer Room and front entry hall and the mountain of stuff seemed more managable. And it's certainly more roomy in the Computer Room now.
The VKB attaches to handhelds and projects the image of a full-size keyboard onto the surface of the desk where the handheld is placed, allowing the user to input text without a physical keyboard.
Not quite in the same league as Dillinger's desk in Tron, this is still quite cool (and amazingly enough, there doesn't seem to be a picture of Dillinger's desk on the Internet—wierd because it's such a cool desk).
It's 2004, and we aim to make it the YEAR OF HEADPHET! We're really starting to see more and more images appearing in popular culture featuring our favourite subject—sexy ladies in headphones, headsets, ear defenders and all the rest of that good stuff. Of course, the only way this can continue is for each and every one of you to do your part to ensure this site—and its sister sites—grows during this year.
While I find this surprising, at the same time, I don't find it surprising at all.
