This nearly broke me

OK, after about 7 years i recently got access to this blog again, i found this post that I never published (from 2011) and all these years, and two jobs later, it made me laugh. Not sure if anyone is still reading but I thought I'd hit 'publish' for shits and giggles. If anyone is still out there let me know ;)

[userPF 11:50 AM]:
ok .. what i do need though.... is some more wireless mouses though as I have userLC on a wired up mouse and when we get the internet usb's she will be needing the usb port for that...

[TheITG 11:50 AM]:
mouse can plug into the back of the keyboard
keyboard has two spare ports on it

[userPF 11:50 AM]:
okey dokey..

[TheITG 11:51 AM]:
new laptops have 3 ports anyway
so she should be fine with mouse/kb and internet modem
regardless of the extra ports

[userPF 11:51 AM]:
our keyboards dont have usb ports>???

[TheITG 11:51 AM]:
what brand is your keyboard ?

[userPF 11:51 AM]:
HP... and also Lenovo

[TheITG 11:52 AM]:
all lenovo, IBM, dell ones (the only ones IT have ever ordered) have spare USB ports on the back

[userPF 11:52 AM]:
they are wired up into a usb in the laptops and pc/laptops
NUP... ours don’t

[TheITG 11:52 AM]:
are you talking about USB keyboards ?

[userPF 11:52 AM]:
FUC&&&&&..

[TheITG 11:52 AM]:
HP ones were old PS/2 ones that came with desktops, they will not have USB ports on the back

[userPF 11:52 AM]:
sorry i am confusing you.. lol

[TheITG 11:52 AM]:
You’re confusing me ????....
if you are talking about a USB keyboard that IT supplied, then they have it
with 2 exceptions:
1. you are blind ;)
or 2. your office sourced those keyboards themselves
lenovo ones have USB ports on the back, 4000% sure
take another look
providing it is a USB keyboard
same with IBM and dell

[userPF 11:54 AM]:
lenovo do not have the usb ports and also the Microban do not have usb ports...

[TheITG 11:54 AM]:
microban we did not supply
never heard of them

[userPF 11:54 AM]:
just checked and got the crew to double check for me and only two of the guys have usb ports in their keyboards.. the rest don’t

[TheITG 11:54 AM]:
someone must have gone and bought the microban ones

[userPF 11:54 AM]:
God knows with this office..

[TheITG 11:55 AM]:
what model is the laptop that userLC is using

[userPF 11:55 AM]:
we have so much SH*^ from the last few years.. hence I am doing the clean up etc...
Lenova Think Pad
T400

[TheITG 11:55 AM]:
t400 has 3 usb ports
so one for mouse, one for kb and one for modem
two on the left one on the right

[userPF 11:55 AM]:
only 2 usb ports and 2 ethernet ports

[TheITG 11:56 AM]:
Nope

[userPF 11:56 AM]:
Yep

[TheITG 11:56 AM]:
don’t make me come up there
ive got a t400 sitting in front of me

[userPF 11:56 AM]:
gonna smack you back..

[TheITG 11:56 AM]:
two on the left, next to an ethernet port and a modem port
one on the RIGHT

[userPF 11:56 AM]:
well yours is special

[TheITG 11:56 AM]:
mine isnt special
we ordered 150 of these

[userPF 11:56 AM]:
USERLC SAYS NO.... :)

[TheITG 11:56 AM]:
i dont care what userLC says

[userPF 11:56 AM]:
ok

[TheITG 11:56 AM]:
one on the RIGHT
towards the back
next to the optical drive

[userPF 11:56 AM]:
YOU ARE RIGHT..

[userPF 11:57 AM]:
I JUST LOOKED

[TheITG 11:57 AM]:
I know im right
im going to smash this monitor in a second
and charge it to your office!

[userPF 11:57 AM]:
thats why you’re IT.. :) and I am business support :)

[TheITG 11:57 AM]:
im seriously doubting you have lenovo keyboards without USB ports too ;)

[userPF 11:57 AM]:
but we're right with the keyboards not having the usb ports

[TheITG 11:57 AM]:
ive never seen one that didn’t
but we'll have to agree to disagree there ...

[userPF 11:59 AM]:
mine does but the consults looks like a kids one...

[TheITG 11:59 AM]:
for now, we're sorted with ... userLC does not need a wireless mouse.
done ?

[userPF 11:59 AM]:
all good...
need to give you more beers.. (b)

[TheITG 12:01 PM]:
jsut for the record, i walked through the office here
looked at 28 lenovo keyboards, of varying models
and all of them have 2 usb ports on the back
some in different places
provided they are USB keyboards of course

[userPF 12:01 PM]:
YES YOU ARE RIGHT AS I FOUND IT ON USELC’s KEYBOARD AT THE TOP RIGHT.. AND SHE IS SORRY FOR ME FOR HAVING TO CRAWL BACK TO YOU..
userDW’s microban doesnt though.. they must have bought it from a local shop..

[TheITG 12:02 PM]:
Possibly

[TheITG 12:03 PM]:
also, a wireless mouse still connects at the computer via a USB port, so even if you were right and that the computer only had 2 USB ports and the keyboard had none, then a wireless mouse still wouldn’t have helped you :)

[userPF 12:04 PM]:
we are all good and will leave you in peace rather than in pieces.. lol...

[TheITG 12:05 PM]:
