I've occasionally been hearing a low knocking sound from a wall, near the mains circuit breaker, and couldn't figure out what it was. Thud-thud... thud-thud-thud... thud... thud-thud. Couldn't see anything outside. I rummaged around in the attic, some rodent nesting in the wall perhaps?
I've developed an addiction to the "TrackPoint" mouse, the little nibble in the middle of the keyboard that everybody hates. The problem is, once you get accustomed to using one, nothing beats it. So now you've a shortage of keyboards to choose from, nevermind laptops!
Anyway, when moving some old servers up to the electronics recycling room, a colleague and I did a bit of dumpster diving, and wham, I struck gold! A full size Thinkpad keyboard! Dirty and hideous, but functioning. With a bit of soap and scrubbing, it was as good as new.
