Yea, Microsoft!

I had a really happy experience lately with Microsoft.  I've had problems with various early versions of the Natural Keyboard.  Either the arrow keys were not placed for optimal gamingcoding, or the F-Lock key would reset to the unpreferred state after some time.

The Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 retains the F-Lock setting that I explicitly set, and Microsoft just sent me an email by way of which I can track my rebate.  (The check was mailed on 03/18/2007.  Love that time-travel.)  I love automated rebate tracking.

I finally have a keyboard that remembers what I told it, has the keys in the right position, and I can watch my rebate roll in.
