Somehow I have this mental image of TB slamming the phone down and then doing whatever the desk-based equivalent of leaving 10,000 miles of rubber is, before vowing never to call him again...

Nowhere near as much fun now CRT monitors are a thing of the past, that's what it is. ;)

I'm gutted. Absolutely gutted. My old Compaq (that shows how old it is!) keyboard, we've been through much together at work, and its always survived. Until now. Gutted. It lost a heated argument with an Elitebook 8440. Devastated  :'(

Yet to see anyone destroy a VGA CRT in a fit of rage.  Obviously, lots of LCDs have gone to landfill due to dealing with idiots all day long  :-[

I did see someone through a CRT based dumb terminal (one of the big old heavy metal items in the 1980s) from a first floor window once - fortunately, he picked an open window.

Yes, a wee bit of destruction every now and again is very therapeutic - clears the custard no end. :-* :-*

I agree wholeheartedly, but still gutted I bust my Compaq keyboard (103 key, not even one with a Windows button).

Funnily enough I've got one of those old Compaq ones, and it's the nicest keyboard I've ever used.

My one still clatters away nicely, keys are getting quite worn, but it really annoys her when I'm at full chat with the fingers to the board, such that she has to turn the volume up on the telly whilst watching some 'reality' cack on the telly....   ;D

Serviced the beast today along with front pads and droplinks... Pattern parts would appear to be service items :-\ Droplinks have only done 12k ish. Bought a few bits and bobs from the scrappy, now have illuminated air vents, fixed rear interior light that some flid had managed to break, and sorted a busted window switch.

Popped over to see Robseymv6 this evening to collect a replacement bumper following a conversation with a bollard on Friday night. Thanks Rob, bumper has scrubbed up nicely :y

Back to the bodyshop in the morning so that they can replace all the bits that they should have done the first time >:(

I have one of those original IBM AT keyboards with the 'rattle the windows' click action.... Weighs a tonne as well! Trouble is I haven't used a desktop pc / keyboard for about ten years and struggle with anything other than a Dell or HP laptop keyboard.
